    well you can use the tool view leak points only to display the leak points.

    A point is considered “leak” if:
    ● It is not situated on the center plane, meaning that the y-coordinate of the point >0.0001.
    ● The point is situated on a boundary edge (An edge with only 1 face attached to it).
    Note that for hydrostatic calculations an edge counts also as a boundary edge if two faces are
    attached to it of which one is excluded from hydrostatic calculations. This could for example be the
    case for a ship with a closed deck, from which the deck is put in a separate layer that is not included
    in the hydrostatics calculations. In that case DELFTship keeps calculating until the deck line is
    submerged. Also windows or any other none watertight surfaces could be treated similar.
    It is important to realize that leak points are not actually always leak in the sense that they are always making
    water. A leak point in DELFTship is a point that is potentially leak and only becomes actually leak if it is
    submerged. So the presence of leak points does not always have to pose a problem, just as long as they are
    not submerged.

    Yes the web contact is active, but it maybe that the office is closed this week due to holidays this week.

    well it’s all in guys!

    Frames can be generated from the ship lines. You can easily set the distance for sections, waterlines, buttocks and diagonals. The lines plan can be exported to a cad program and voila, there are your frames.

    Tanks can be generated using the pro version and tank addition.

    Dear Bram,

    A ship model is always made “moulded”, which means no skin thickness is included in the model design. For hydrostatic purposes each layer can be assigned and thickness, or an correction factor is applied.

    To print your sections, add the intersections at the right place, create a linesplan, export the lines plan to a CAD program, scale and prepare the drawing printing

    In my experience it’s a long try to use importing an offsett table to model in Delftship.
    I would suggest you two different opinions.

    1) Import your linesplan as an background image and use this to image to model the ship

    2) create markerlines from your linesplan, import these in to Delftship and use these to model the surface.

    In my opinion you should use an separate surface for the transom. How to do that, is something you can find in the Delfship tutorial about recreating linesplans.

    good luck

    Just add stations each feet and export the linesplan to autocad.
    You can set the scale before exporting or change the scale in AutoCAD afterwards.

    Use AutoCAD to separte line stationlines, eventually mirror them, put them on a layout and send to a plotter or nest them in order to send them to a cnc machine.

    As long as your centre bottom plate is completely flat, it should be merged automatically.

    It is not available in the free version. Buy the pro version, it is very reasonable priced.

    Thanks, I will have a look.

    I am having the same problem at the moment. Everytime I import a new marker file the control point form disappears and even at other moments it does, despite selecting one or more control points.

    Only solution I found out yet is restarting te program. Anyone there has a better one?

    Thanks,

    ( I am using Delftship free 3.2)

    but you can use bootcamp, or software like parallels to emulate windows on a mac. Works fine.
