Free!ship for hull design how much advantage over Rhino?
I've recently downloaded the latest version of Free!ship and have spent some time experimenting with it. I may be a little premature asking this question consifering my limited experience with Free!ship but the question that strikes me is if I only use Free!ship for hull design dose it really have any significant advantage over designing the hull from scratch in Rhino?
Freeship has already some calculations for stability also has a plate expansion feature and the tools for modeling the hull are IMO way better than rhino, this is comparing freeship to "barebones" rhino, but you can add all this features to rhino buying the extra plug-ins already available for marine design you can check Rhinomarine and see all the plug-ins available
on the other side you can do most of what freeship does using rhino with the help of spreadsheets or calculator.
So IMO use freeship for design your hull and then use rhino to finish the extra details
