    I'm trying to import a GHS file created in Rhino into Archimedes, but with little success. The axes seem screwed up and when the axes were sorted my model consisted only of the transom station. Anyone got any ideas?

    Do some of the stations have the "DK" flag attached to mark the deckpoint? I've encountered that problem and reported it to John a week or two ago.

    Check your ATTACHGHSDATA in Rhino. A Centerline Component should be "1/2 split on CL", In Rhino - is Starboard , - Aft where GHS is + Starboard and + AFT.

    The DK Flag is the Deckedge mark in GHS and Rhino is not supporting it at this time.

    Feel free to send me the model to double check for you.

    Hi Andy,

    Seems strange. Drop me a copy of the model you are having a problem with. As martijn pointed out there was an error handling the dk definition that is fixed for the next release and it sounds as if thats the problem.

    Please feel free to get in touch.
