    Victor, you are doing a fantastic job here! Thank you very much.

    Hey guys, I think we should not use words like "I want" and "I request".
    Let's just give Victor hints on things that we believe could be developed or improved.

    Being a programmer myself, I know that creating a software like this and making it work so well (like Freeship does) is definitely not a piece of cake... It is very time-consuming and can become very nerve-consuming too. And Victor is doing it for free.

    I'm sure that, bit by bit, Freeship will become a reference to many other (often overpriced) software.

    OK can I hint for a way to show a heeled waterline...either by tilting the model and having the waterline stay still or angling the waterline? It would be really nice to be able to see how the water would shape around a heeled hull or one that is down at the bow or stern. Thanks for looking at it.

    To add to Steve Lewis' request ...

    It would be "really great" if the software were able to calculate the transverse metacentric height at a specified heel angle. One good reason for this is so we could use the formula on this page to calculate the "Stability Factor" of our designs:

    http://www.bearmountainboats.com/KayakTechnical.htm

    Steve Killing says he uses this factor on all his designs now because it's a good way to get a general idea of the relative stability of a hull before you build it.

    Found the source (and the link on website too, thanks) :)

    Another feature request: it would be great if one could write (python) scripts to read/write geometry and other data :cool: so that one can easily automate some operations.

    Bye

    Andrea

    I have not been able to find where to get the file fortlib.dll. Could someone give me a safe reference for a source?
