    Thank you very much for the reply and my apologies for having been late in mine.

    What I’d would say is that, for exemple, when Full longitudinal view of the boat is visualized the figures of data of lateral area etc. are very small and, for me at least, difficult to read (screen is 27″)

    when using zoom to see just a small portion of the hull the figures have the same size than before, and so for stations, waterlines and so on

    It would be useful, I think, or to adjust the size of the fonts form the panel Preferences, and/or to relate them to the zoom factor, like a general CAD program.

    Thank you very much for the interest shown

    Cheers for now

    I sorted out the colour  but not the font size, as it seems that the size of the fonts stays the same whichever are  the zoom settings. The possibility to increase the font size, or to relate the font size to the zoom settings, by my personal point of view, would be useful.

    Thanks

    Cheers for now

    Hi, welcome aboard.
    You can export the drawing in a .dxf file and use a polyline.
    Menu Save > Export > 2D Curves > DXF 2D curves.
    To export, the Stations must be ON and of course you have to position the stations were they are needed: Tools > Intersections > Stations > Add > …..
    Then open the.DXF with a CAD (Autocad etc.), modify the station to draw the chain with a polyline then you can find very easily the lenght.

    Cheers for now

    Tnx. I had the same problem, and with this 3d I solved.

    I did this small reminder to bear the method in mind in the future ( at 64 memory is running out…) and thanks to Taby, Tegolf, Jurgen 54 and Icare that replied my posts and gave me their help. Of course I will be grateful to all those who will signal errors or more elegant ways to solve the problem.
    Cheers for now

    Sorted out, thanks to all who willingly and patiently answered my question.
    As Icare suggested, it is of the utmost importance to build all around the 0,00 line, a thing that probably in a previous design I did absolutely by chance.
    During the construction the colors seem to appear at random and shape is very rough as more sections will be neeeded

    but once collocated the ballast in the actual location the colors went OK

    and all the hydrostatic calculations are fair.
    Now I will do a detailed tutorial to bear it in mind.
    Thanks again.

    Thank you Icare for the kind reply.

    Step 6 – No, the bulb is on a separate layer and, being the extruded cilinder below WL it should be grey, exactly as the cone, AFAIK.

    Step 9 – I will try the metod you suggested.

    (Wrong) Procedure to design a bulb

    Step 1
    First of all I draw the ballast, using Bulb calculator and drawing a schematic on Autocad.
    Pic. 1

    Step 2 –
    Project opened in Delftship.
    Pic. 2

    Step 3
    Draw the bulb. Starting from n° 3 part and placing it in a convenient place so that the bulb is in line with the bottom of the keel: z= -60, lenght is 3,77 so I place start point 50,00, end point 53,77, max diam. 2,56, min. diam. 2,27, y = 0
    Pic. 3

    Step 4 – First cilinder, or better, cone, is created.
    Pic 4

    Step 5 – Left points selected as I will try now to extrude part n°2. Longitudinal direction 1,84, transverse direction 0,00, vertical direction 0,00 and OK.
    Pic 5

    Step 6
    Second cilinder extruded. First perplexity: why the extruded ciliber is green color? Shouldn’t it be grey?
    Pic. 6

    Step 7
    Trying to scale the left side of the extruded cilinder.
    Left points selected
    Pic. 7

    Step 8
    Values to scale added: left side of the cone should be of 1,80 in radius while the right side is 2,27: so 1,80/2,27 = 0,793. Longitudinal = 1.
    Pic 8

    Step 9 – OK, and this is the result:
    Pic 9

    I tried several times, but with no results, and I can’t find where my error is….

    Ciao Jurgen!

    fa caldo…. e andiamo in spiaggia a mettere le barche in mare!

    Thank you for your kindness: I will check again (I’m trying to do a detailed step by step report of the method I’m trying to use) and will let you know ASAP.

    Thanks a lot

    Cheers for now

    Hi all
    with the previous version of Delftship I was able to design the keel ballast, as shown in the #4318 post, in a very straightforward way, simply creating a cilinder, extruding one face, ten scaling it to have a cone and so on. Everything went very well.

    After a couple of months I have to design a different keel ballast for my new RC sailing model but this time I did not sort it out in any way.

    I’m myself that doesn’t remember the correct procedure I used then (getting older…) or, in this new version, the procedure, in particular for the “Scale” command, has somewhat changed?

    With thanks
