      Is it possible to ‘split’ the hull at a station and output that profile to a printer to allow me to cut out a hull profile at each station?

      I use this software for designing and building models and I am looking for an easier way to progress than working from the conventional lines diagram.

      Thanks

      Hi, McIntosh!
      I use this software with the same reason. I am making the model (Scale 1 : 16)of an traditional fishing boat. My method is:

    • Defining the hull shape with Delftship.
    • Exporting frames in the ‘DXF’ format file.
    • Opening the ‘dxf’ file in CAD software
    • Making detail drawing of the frame, ready to bi gluedon the wooden plank and cut to final shape
    • What is your procedure?

      Kind regards,

    Dida,

    I export the lines file to a printer, then print enough copies to allow me to cut out each individual frame, paste to wood and cut to shape.
