    Hi Marven:

    The offending names where:

    Lower Bottom Plate
    Upper Bottom Plate
    Topsides Plate
    Sheer Plate
    Lower transom

    I simply removed the spaces and they worked.

    Best regards

    Many thanks for your usual fast response Marven,that was exactly the problem. I changed the layer names and voila!
    Have a great day, I know I will now that you have come to my rescue.
    Kind regards

    Hi Marven:
    I have sent you an email to info@delftship with the file as apparently the Forum system cannot send .stl format files.

    Hi Mike:
    Once again thanks for your efforts and I see what you are saying. I guess the older version was more forgiving on leak points and I took your advice and loaded up Version 3 into my laptop and loh and behold, the hyrostatic data etc. shows up just as it did before I changed over to Version 4 on the desktop.
    I guess, I will have to re-work existing files in the old version and keep Version 4 for new projects. At least we have actually modelled the design I sent to you over into Autocad and actually built from the design. See our website at http://www.kelticstar.com

    Hi Mike:
    Thanks for trying. Although not the greatest expert on Delftship we have been using Delftship Pro for over four years without a moments problem and have never had the hydrostatic info go blank on me. The trouble has only occurred since switching over to the new version two days ago and all files that I have imported have gone the same way. The real bone of contention is that I am finalizing modifications on a couple of our designs for a big tender and I am now without hydro info on even the original drawings.

    We use Delftship for initial design, hydrostatics and plate development and then DXF the file over to Autocad to do the actual construction drawings. Unfortunately there is no way to reverse the process and import AutoCad into Delftship.

    I am hoping it might just be a new licence issue as I loaded up the one that came with the email notification and I have sent a request for another licence in case that is the problem

    Cheers
    Bob

    Hi Mike:
    File attached, but this is not the only one, none of my files will give the information I mentioned which is a bit of a tee off as am working against a deadline at the moment and need the hydrostatics info that was on three of my files like yesterday.
    By the way, it is a paid Pro version.
    Cheers

    I have just downloaded the new version and must say it looks and feels much better. However. I cannot get the properties of volume,displacement,waterplane and Initial stability info to show in Design Hydrostatics. I have tried turning on “control points” and “leak points only” but with no success.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Best regards
    Bob
