    Hi William,

    Sorry to hear you are having problems downloading our software.

    As we do not have a Mac here, I can not try to find out what is happening- although I know that the most common Windows warning is that our software is not downloaded very often (from their perspective absolutely true) but the warning should have the option to continue anyway.

    I would never recommend downloading anything with the firewall or virus scanner turned off- although sometimes using a different virus scanner may help.

    Can you maybe try downloading on a different (Windows) PC?

    Hi Hrvoje,

    When DELFTship creates the developed plates it tries to optimize the space used, by rotating and moving each layer.

    A result can be that parts are rotated 90 or 180 degrees if that would result in a better fit.

    Of course you can manually rotate them back before saving / printing / exporting..

    Hi,

     

    I trust you have checked the online model database- nothing there for you?

    What do you need the plans for, if I may ask?

    Hi Tidexon, welcome to the forum.

    Maybe you can take a look at the historical vessels in the online database:

    New project -> Online model database -> type of vessel: Historical

    Look at the Brigg “Joachim Allwordt” has a similar stern,  the ‘Twee Gebroeders” or the “Groden” for ideas..

    Hi Allan,

    It looks like there may have been a corruption of your project file. If you can send us this file we may be able to correct it for you.

    I have removed your screenshot as it contains information that you really want to keep private.

    Hi Berislav, welcome to our Forum!

    Yes, Word and Excel need to be installed in order to create .doc or .xls reports.

    You could create an HTML report, and open that in Office, on a machine that has it installed. That’s what happens ‘under the hood’ anyway

    Wow. Thanks for sharing these.

    That’s a level of detail I have not yet seen. Perhaps a tad overkill for stability purposes, but _very_  nice for your goals!

    We have a manual for DELFTship, but we do not have plans for ships

    You can see if you like any of the models in the online database?

    Hi Fredo,

    If you click on the ‘Clip’ button in the viewport button panel, you toggle the display of the clipped volume.

    (the viewport buttons are the buttons below the ribbon, but above your model.  It ‘unfolds’ don if you hover over it, unless you have it pinned down)

    Hi JayTee,

     

    I can also not reproduce the error you are reporting. What version are you using?

    Is it a structural problem? Does it happen in other projects?

    Interesting.. Offset surface is not a feature that we use often, but it seems quite unpredictable indeed.

    I hope we can find the time to look at what happens, and why, and maybe include a fix in the next release..

    Hi Raul,

    Welcome to the DELFTship forum.

    Centre of gravity (CoG) is a bit of a tricky thing- DELFTship can calculate the CoG of each layer, and the combined CoG’s of all layers (provided you specified a thickenss and a weight to each layer), but DELFTship has no knowledge of construction elements. As these pose a significant portion of the total weight of a vessel an exact CoG can not be calculated based on hull design alone. For this reason the baseic weight distribution of ships is specified in a list of weights that results in the CoG used in stability calculations. This list includes every significant weight that must always be present on a ship- things like engines, masts, rigging, etc.

    We can say more about the centre of buoyancy (CoB), which might help get an idea of where loads might have been to keep a vessel relatively even keeled: the further away from the  CoB the CoG is situated, the bigger the list and trim of the ship will be.

    Hi BN75, welcome to our forum!

    Unfortunately, due to the way the unfolded plates are calculated, there is no way to store unfold layouts.

    We will look at this question, as we understand how useful it can be to be able to store a modified layout, but I can make no predictions as to if, how or when progress can be made…

    You can delete the curve by selecting it and hitting the ‘Delete’ key.  Do make sure you have no additional geometry selected.

    You cannot merge control curves, but it is easy to add a new one by selecting the edge you want to add it to, making sure the entire edge is selected. That will add a single curve.

    When I try to import your file, I get a result- see attachement. What version are you using?

     

    The file extension needs to be *.stl
