    Untick the hydrostatics column, NOT the visible column.

    OK, Now I see what you mean.

    When this has happened to me it has been a result of additional layers added to the base fbm with a tick in the hydrostatics column. If you look in the design hydrostatics output it is likely that many of the fields which should contain information will show 0.0000.
    Use the layers dialog and progressively untick hydrostatics until the missing features re-appear.
    Sorry but I don’t know any more than that.

    Sorry, but I don’t understand what you are saying, maybe an image would help.

    Sorry, I should have been more explicit. Turning off layers works when exporting to DXF mesh.
    DXF 3d curves exports as edges, plus stations, buttocks and waterlines dependent on their selection in the main dialog.

    PS I have often wondered why the free version removed the ability to export to IGS which was available in earlier versions.

    1. Save your pdf as a jpg file.
    2. Split you jpg into 3 i.e. Plan, Elevation and Body Plan ensuring the scale is the same for all 3 jpgs.
    3. Import the jpgs as back ground images into Delftship after you have set up a new model whose parameters are those of the ship in terms of LBP, Beam and Draft.

    NB Many Warships use the FP as Zero and number frames/sections upwards Fwd to Aft, whilst standard Commercial ships use the AP as Zero and number frames/sections upwards Aft to Fwd. This has significance where the ships midpoint is not 0.5 of the LBP.

    Yes, untick visible in the layers dialog.

    Save the file as a 2D dxf.

    After import of a Delftship DXF into Autocad I have the same issue. No-where have I been able to find a satisfactory explanation of this self intersecting.

    By trial and error I have found that creating a NURBS surface in Autocad I can then use the thicken command to create a solid.

    I work in imperial and an imported DXF is scaled at 1″ = 1ft. (I assume this is similar in metric) and needs to be scaled XYZ to world scale for subsequent operations.

    I have found that when first opening a dxf file created in delftship in autocad, I need to save it as a dwg file then re-open it before attempting to use clipboard copy.

    Save the lines plan as a dxf file and then you can turn layers on and off within a cad program capable of reading a dxf file.

    Select the layers, stations, buttocks and waterlines required before exporting. If you have all the model on one layer then you can only decide from stations, buttocks and waterlines.

    Thats why I don’t use 2D export you have no control unlike 3D. I also find lines plans developed by Delftship are a dogs breakfast of overlapping and duplicate lines if you save as dxf.

    There is a program called Print2Cad which is an Autodesk App

    Maybe what you need.
