I find that for some stupid reason i keep revisiting a hull i model and try to “improve” the hydros, and after two hours realize it got better, but at the expense of too much narrowing of the hull.
Would it be feasible for you to add a feature such as “Beam and Wwaterlines Not Less Than/Not to Exceed”?
How i envision this would work is initially, the user models a hull and gets it to about 80% of where the wetted surface and and underwater length, etc, need to be. Then, the user locks (not using points, but maybe in a data sheet) each waterline to minimum and maximum areas or Cp, or Wp, etc. Then, whether it is the Free! version or the Professional version, it not allow the user to get carried away over-optimizing the hull.
Just an idea… thanks
