    Blender 2.8 now defaults to metric object dimensions.

    Blender 2.8 was practically a total rewrite of blender - so many things changed with user interface, object hierarchy, units, tools... Compared to "pre 2.8", it's totally different than what you may have seen before.

    One of the things that I find helpful for precise dimension-ing - when you scale or move something or apply an operation, you type in the dimension you want numerically.

    Some of the funding for 2nd half of 2019 is being specifically allocated to work on snapping tools and precision modeling.

    The blender development fund has some big sponsors onboard recently - current development funding is in excess of $84,000 USD per month: Blender Development Fund https://fund.blender.org/

    Example showing bulkheads and stringers and one stringer removed to show notching in both bulkhead and stringer.

    Bulkheads with minimum floor height defined and hull plates separated into individual sheets.

    Example hull generated with bulkheads following parametric curves and plates separated by color with thickness added.

    export.png
    Added UI to test exporting files...

    quick_hull.png
    Quick hull sample with plates separated automatically and unique color assigned by script during separation process

    export_plate_svg.png
    Resulting plates flattened and exported via script... (export plates button)

    export_dxf.png

    Resulting plates cleaned and ready for nesting (import plates button)

    Still work in progress but functional at this point...
