    Hi Dan

     

    What would you like to accomplish? We use the ‘set transparent’ option a lot to filter out backgrounds, if that helps…

    Hi Alejo,

     

    What paper size setting do you have (in the print setup menu)?

    As everything looks scaled down, I expect the image is actually scaled up. It does that for large paper sizes

    Hi Martin,

    What version (ModuleCode) of DELFTship are you using? KN and GZ values are not available in the Free or the simple Professional version- you will need at least the Inclined hydrostatics extension.

    Hi Terrance,

    The latest version of DELFTship works slightly different with units- and 302808 looks suspiciously like a Meters to Feet conversion. I will check if we accidentally ignore the units of parts, assuming you did not change system recently?

    Hi Mats,

    In the latest verion of DELFTship you set the project units in the Project settings:

    On the Coordinate tab you can set metric / imperial / custom.

    In the details window, general information section you can set dimensions to meters, mm, ft or inches.

    This setting is now used when exporting.

    Hi Terry,

    Thanks for reporting this- we will look into what might be causing this lag. If we can’t reproduce it here we may contact you for some additional information.

    Two quick questions- are you using the Free version?

    I trust you are not installing on a virtual machine?

    Can you please give us details on your system (OS version at least)

    Hi Terrance,

    Thank you for your kind words, we work hard to make DELFTship as nice as we can. You are right that the background image system was kludgy, that is why we overhauled it. The manual should highlight most of the changes.

    Because we found that background images were becoming more important in multiple tools, we dropped the ‘show in’ check boxes, and made them available everywhere by default. You can then choose to show / hide them in each window as required.

    Placing, scaling, cropping, rotating etc can now be done from the background image window. In the 2D view you drag a red crosshair to the origin (the 0,0 coordinate of your perspective). In the 3D view you can then scale the image to fit.

    I hope you will find the use of this system!

    What version are you running? We released a new version that should fix this issue, so please make sure you are on the latest version (at least 13_10_325)

    No, that should not be happening- apparently your OpenGL identifies itself slightly different than we normally see… I will look into possible options, end contact you for more info if necessary.

    Hi Nerdavellir,

    Well spotted, this was a bug in the previous release. A fix has already been published.

    Hi BVVEEN, Thiago,

    DTL files are DELFTship proprietary files, and are not open source.

    Tanks can be exported as DXF mesh, but I do not know matlab so I can’t say whether this is usefule for you.

    Hi Trangtun, welcome to our Forum!

    This is a known issue (point order in the frame exports is not consistent)- and it will probably be solved in the next release- now planned for Q1 2021.

    That said- when exporting frames you will lose some design information (you are reducing a complex DELFTship model file to a limited text file) so when  importing a set of stations  the shape is likely not going to be exactly what you exported.

    Hi Joe,

    To be honest, I had the same question when I started out using DELFTship. Then I realised we actually never, ever start from scratch. Normally we start out with one of the given templates (options depend on Free or Professional version) . That way you are invited to start by entering the main design dimensions, a good thing..

    You are welcome, of course.

     

    The check model function does not add points. At least, up to now it has never done that. It may be the  points were there, and only became visible because of a flipped normal? It is impossible to say more without having seen the model. I very highly recommend against having overlapping points. Nothing good will come of it, and confusion and problems are always always a result.
