      Hi all

      Suppose that I have modeled a hull. After this I want “to slice” the hull to obtain the sections as if they were caves. I could slice, for example, in 1 by 1 centimeter.

      Question: is possible with DelftShip ? If so, how ?

      Hi Alex!

      I don’t understand the word “cave” in this context :dry: .

      But, yes, you can “cut” your hull in four different directions:

      – horizontally (waterlines) 🙂
      – lengthwise (buttocks) :side:
      – cross-sections (stations) :silly:
      – diagonals :sick:

      You can find this under the TOOLS tabProjects ToolsIntersections (the second button from the left: Hull & scissors).

      In the dialogue box, choose the tab corresponding to the cut direction you need.

      Then, click on the dustbin. Yes! Deleting them all is a good way to begin, thus you can cancel the default settings and order your owns.

      Clic on the “+N” button and choose your own settings:
      – Start & End values are the X, Y or Z minimum and maximum you’re interested in (waterlines for the aerial aren’t specially useful!).
      – Interval is the distance between two cuts (1 by 1 centimeter is possible… 0.1 millimeter by 0.1 millimeter, too! :woohoo: )

      The “+1” button adds only one new section (section = cut in technicalese).

      Nothing new appears? Activate the sections’ visibility:
      Click on the convenient button under the HOME tabHull display: Black, red, blue or black (again) hull frames (not the View buttons grouped on the right).

      Is this the answer to your question?

      Hi Icare

      That is !!! I expressed myself wrong – the correct term is “cross sections” (stations).

      Thank you for your very very detailed explanation !

      I’ll try it and if I have some trouble I come back again, ok.
