Thank you, sir.
I knew that I had leak points, but they weren’t a problem before :unsure: .
My next step, is to eliminate all, and see if the report changes. (I’m sure that it will 😉 ).
I’ll post the result immediately.
Sorry, Marven :ohmy:
File added to original post.
I have attached relevant data, but also included screen shot for stations showing skin thickness added…
Again, I would like to note that this problem did not arise until after the update. I also tried opening old files (done with v3.20) with no volume data displayed.

Thank you for the prompt response, but I still can’t get to where I want to go 🙁 .
The box rule dictates a maximum total weight (hull, keel, bulb, rudder, spars, electronics, etc.) of not less than 4.00 tonnes (actually 4.00 kg, but I have scaled up…).
To achieve maximum performance one needs to optimize the shape of the hull and underwater appendages to achieve lightest possible displacement of 4.00 tonnes.
Skin thickness, and weights of build materials, etc., will be selected to meet design displacement (4.00).
I tried entering a (nominal) skin thickness of 3.0 for hull stations, but this had no affect on Hydro Report.
There are still no readings for Moulded Volume (which would appear to be interior volume of hull – a reading of limited value for my design exercise), nor Total Displacement Volume, or Displacement).
To further compound my dilemna, the rudder, keel and bulb will be solid structures with no “skin” thickness
Sorry for the lengthy post, but I’m worried – is it possible to revert to v3.20?
I echo Mike’s praise!
This new version is simply GREAT :cheer: . Thank You!
Now I know how I will spend the weekend (familiarizing myself with all the buttons) 😛
Thank You, Marven.
“Stupid is as Stupid does…”
I would like to add my most sincere appreciation for your wonderful program and the personalization (is that a word?) in supporting those of us who use the free version.
That appreciation will be fully realized when I re-gain full employment. At that time, I intend to purchase the complete program.
Again, thanks for your help (where’s Mike? On the couch in your new office?).
There are a lot of good links to tutorials in using DS, as well as many for converting CAD to G Code.
To “analyze” the different resistance (molecular flow) properties of various materials is, however, a whole different Science.
Please post additional information detailing what you would really need help with (this ain’t the best forum for molecular flow science…).
When I extrude a line, I now only get a (green) line, with no control points, nor any connections to original line.
This worked for me before – I’m sure that I have (again) screwed something up…
Mike was my “Saint” before, but perhaps a few of you other chaps have input/can share.
I did the “Ctrl +A” and it fixed the problem (you’re a Saint!)
You now have my (sloppy) file, but please post crticisms for all to see 🙂
Thanks for taking the time to answer my request for help!
I am sending you file (thank you for “trust”) in email.
Not sure what you meant by transom, but it’s now a problem for me.
“Problem” started when I imported new keel sections…
Please disregard – I figured it out. Enable the “Files” option in “Toolbars”.
I looked at your example, and was not sure what you were trying to accomplish.
Use the “add station” feature to incorporate additional frames. It’s to the left on your tool bar…
If you are ever standing close to me at the bar, you will never have to pay for your drinks!
Somehow, I knew that the answer was too close for me to see.
This fixes it – EXACTLY!
Thank you for taking the time to post your respons.
