    Dear all,
    I just started to use Delftship. I have lines and body plan of a yacht in 2d .dxf file and I have imported it in Delftship as markers. The markers are not in the right position and need to be rotated and moved. I cannot find a way to move and rotate the markers. Do you know how to do it? I am using Delftship free edition.

    Thank you in advance for your assistance in this matter.

    Regards,
    Stefano.

    I guess before importing the data to Delftship should check that the coordinate axes coincide with the .dxf file.

    Hi Tansl,
    Thank you for your reply.

    I understand from your post that you suggest to move and rotate the .dxf file in the CAD software in a way that it is with the correct orientation and origin before importing it to DelftShip as markers.

    Do you know if DelftShip can move and rotate markers? If this is the case I will have to research and download a 3D CAD software for rotating and moving my 2D drawing since I do not have a 3D CAD software.

    Regards.

    Sorry, I do not know DelftShip. I do not know if it can rotate markers. Another solution presented by other CAD programs is to change the position of the coordinate axes.
