    Thank you, Marven!

    This was exactly the Problem.

    Now fixed. Next to the print shop for templates.

    Thank you for all of the help that you continue to provide on this Free site!!!!!!!!!!

    S/F, Phil

    This may be a stupid question but, why does the actual beam of my model not correspond to the intended designed beam?
    I can only make it coincide it by creasing an edge at beam level, but then the surface of my hull is not smooth anymore and that is a problem.
    Any ideas?

    Jose, the “design” beam was what you wanted to achieve.

    “Reality” is where you have placed your control points.

    If your efforts are resulting in non-intended creases, then you need to alter your design parameters.

    Marven,

    Thank you for the file conversion! (Yes Mike, I’m still “sucking” up to the Boss 😛 )

    Interestingly, there are some differences in the volumes expressed in Hydrostatics (minor) between the two files (v3/v4). I’ll look deeper into these, and see if I can find some rationality.

    I’ll post my results :dry:

    Mike,

    You’re right on the money (I have none, however :ohmy: ).

    Truth is that Marven provides a level of support that is exemplary.

    Marven, you are a saint (and the greatest salesman/customer support agent)! 🙂

    Without a doubt, you have the kindness to lend “freeloaders” such as myself a helping hand – if only I could go “Pro” :unsure: .

    I am sending my file, and appreciate all of your assistance!

    Thank you, Marven.

    All of my leak points are above the water line, so I’m now back to trusting my v4 HS Data.

    Still… Is it possible to move a v4 file to v3?

    Has anyone figured out a “work-around” to open files developed in v4 in v3?

    The leak points in v4 are problematic for me, and I’m concerned that I may not be getting correct displacement values :ohmy: .

    Dozy,

    Just a suggestion: You could try moving the locations of the lights, then taking a screen shot.

    Stations at 1 foot? Wow! The framing will be substantial :unsure:

    For the builder, it might be better to provide full size prints of the individual stations, together with offsets.

    just my 2 cents :huh: .

    John,

    Try addressing the Leak Points (per Marven’s advice) – it worked for me.

    Mike,

    You did a great job on correcting my model earlier, but I have significant re-work into the foredeck and cockpit (to include placement of mast ram/partners, control lines, etc.). Rather than go back and re-do, I’m going to try to continue with them as parts.

    As in most designs, all of the parameters are a moving target…

    S/F, Phil

    in reply to: what is a station #34298

    A station defines vertical points (Z axis) measured along the keel line (X axis), with transverse measurements defining the beam (Y axis).

    I’m interested though B) . If this basic nomenclature confuses you, what is your interest in using this program or participating in this forum 😉 ?

    All sincere & honest enquiries responded to… 🙂

    Mike,

    I certainly did not delete your sage input to my effort 🙂 .

    “Leak Points” are not terribly important to me, as each of the five major components (hull & underwater appendages, foredeck, cockpit, rigs & sail plans ( x 3)), need to be developed, evaluated, as seperate components before incorporating as a complete design.

    Was that a run-on sentence :unsure: ?

    Please remember, I’m designing to build myself. The actual build process may require some changes :ohmy: . Simply true of all interface between designer (I have not earned the title of architect) and builder (same afterthought), further followed by changes required by the users :silly: .

    With the foregoing in mind, one can easily see how how I have wrapped the axle before, and will most probably do so in the future :blink: .

    But, I know that I have friends who are always there to help me 🙂 .

    Thanks Mike! My plan is to “sew up” my design holes, and send you re-vamp tomorrow for “Peer” (no claim in my part) review,

    Mike,

    Thanks for the clarifiation (I was wrestling with trying to figure out how you had so easily fixed my errors :unsure: .

    Now I know (leading off with Descartes’ theorum :dry: ), and will use this as follows:

    1. Extrude sheer line using only control edges,

    2. Import parts (cockpit and foredeck),

    3. Join parts to extruded sheer, then

    4. Collapse previously extruded edges.

    Sound right?

    After, I’ll work again on the transom, but I’m thinking to do a scooped transom now in an attempt to remove some extra weight.

    Thanks for dropping in to the forum and lending your wisdom.

    As a courtesy, and if you’re interested, I’ll send you a copy of the file after I adjust the displaced volume and do the above.

    BTW, rudder shaft has been temporarily deleted (now a part) and does not affect Hydrostatics.

    The most significant information here is to omit the control points when extruding control lines :ohmy:

    I removed the Foredeck and Cockpit (both of which were developed as “Parts” – to permit me to try different combinations when fitting electronics (this is a Radio Controlled Boat).

    The Hydrostatic Report is now accurate! 🙂 I still need to shave 0.191 tonnes of displacement, but this is do-able with some modifications to the appendages B) .

    I’ll worry myself with re-attaching the Foredeck & Cockpit after I get the displacement “right” (I’ll have to work on that a bit too) :unsure:

    Thank you for all of your help!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂

    S/F, Phil
