      My memory may be shot, but I believe there was a thread a while back that discussed the problem of removing the thickness of planking from designs that are to outside of planking. Was there a reasonable solution?

      If not I guess the easiest would be to set the increment to plank thickness and reposition each point on the curves.

      Any other ideas?

      If the hull was say steel or alum you would use the outside surface as the inside surface, blanking might no be uniform over the entire hull, eg under the waterline plannking might be thicker above a different thickness, if its even all over yuu could try SCALING but its hard to calculate, forming the interior surface is usually done in the Construction Module as of yet Delft doesn’t have one maybe Marven has got a method he could share with us.

      Knotian you could try this, I don’t know if it will work or not and I haven’t the time to try it myself.
      Make your model and save it, scale it (trial and error)
      and save it as a part, open your original and import the part (scaled hull) both should have there own control points. Save that one as well, so you will have 3 models, original, scaled and both, just in case you screw up or it doesn’t work. Let us know how it went.

      Knotian IT’S ALIVE, that method that I described in a previous post worked, we now have an outside and inside surface of a hull, it might be a monster but its MY MONSTER.
