    In the free version a few things that might help when changing views and zoom level.
    If you switch a view and your hull is not displayed in the window, toggle on or off the ” Show both sides of hull” This will bring the full hull into the window.
    Holding the right mouse button moves the image and the left button will zoom in or out as will the scroll wheel.

    Thank you Sergio,
    This gives me exactly what I need to turn my drawing into the tooling to build a hull from.

    I had not found that window to set the spacing so the program had been using some default that was different for each iteration I was drawing. Now I can get uniformity and numbers my mind can grasp not to mention a usable DXF file.

    Win 7 has totally rethought the way it manages the memory and is great for laptops.
    I want to do my PC now but as Mike stated it is so much work to get it back how I like it. I expect I will install a new hard drive for the fresh install and not loose my baseline of where XP is at.

    Marvin, it has to be a nice feeling when you do not need to chase bugs and re write your program when a new OS comes around.

    2. I’m not sure what do you mean by “pressure settings”?
    There is no such thing in Michlet, is there?

    Hi Leo,

    I am in error here, I was looking for the pressure signature along the hull.
    Now that I open my eyes I see the program gives pressure on the sea bottom.
    Being the depth was set at infinity a canoe will not give much of a reading.

    Coming from an aircraft background where we pay attention to pitching moments with our calculations,
    I have found it interesting that many or at least some hull designers ignore the lift/ downforce a hull produces and the effects on trim and drag.

    I am just working at the hobby level with this so I am far from funded one might say.

    Regards,

    Thank you guys,

    I am finally finding my way around and am learning a allot.

    Leo,
    One of my desires is to work with the wave forms along the hull.
    I am working on a canoe design and am working to understand the way hull changes affect the wave form.
    The default in the program is showing wave form behind the vessel. Can this be setup to show the wave form along the vessel?

    I also need to learn about setting up the pressure settings since I expect I am working well below the default settings.

    Regards,
    Charlie

    I have just downloaded this Michlet software but it does not seem to be functional.
    When I open the Milt807w.exe program the window I get has no functional components within.

    I get a window with nine boxes and a list on the right. There is nothing that responds to the mouse.

    In Delftship I have exported to the Michlet file and linked to the exe but it just flashes a window and closes when I click on the file.

    Any Ideas?

    Charlie
