    also how do you get delftship to export the offset tables. I can get it to do the line drawings but cannot find anything about offset tables

    well right now im abt to try to loft one of the hulls I am needing to do in solidworks as im just having a rough time getting it done in delftship.

    that being said once you get the hull lofted up in delft ship you can export it as an iges file and bring it into solidworks. since I design Models for modellers, museums, and the r/c world all usually aircraft and just getting into ships,

    but if I was using solidworks be it a real 1:1 ship or a model I would be able to goto vendors for lets say a winch motor and most of them have equipment in solidworks format i could download and install in my ship. this saves me drawing it up and also since it is the motor i plan on using I have one from the supplier so I know its drawn properly (or should be) so I can use it for clearances etc.

    i can also do superstructures etc really easily with sw and many more things.

    well guys I been playing around and got a couple hulls sorta started but there are areas that i just cant figure out. I have a battleship that has a weird area by the rudder I cant get shaped (it may not be weird but is just weird to me) and I am really wanting to finish this fletcher class destroyer hull so I can get started on the rest of it but again am having troubles with the back end and not sure for adjusting the rest of the hull little tweaks etc. I think i got it going right but not sure where to go next.

    I attached a screenshot and if the file attach works for me attached it as a version 3.6 as for some reason that seems to work for me for swapping back and forth.

    could someone look at it and tell me if I am going in the right direction and what I need to do to get the back end finished up so I can pull it into solidworks for further development.

    thanks
