    Good day folks
    I have downloaded free versions of Freeship both 2.6 and 3.13
    In each case the crease command is inactive; is this common or is there a way to activate it
    Also tried Delfship but my graphics card is to old for the programme to function
    Your ideas are welcome

    When you just open Freeship many commands are inactive. You need first to start a new project (Ctrl+N). Could be this your problem?

    I am attempting to recreate the lines for the Snipe class; have all the coordinates entryed; but has a round bilge
    What I require is a hard chine.

    You may have to add a series of control points on the surface, duplicates, along the line that defines the, chine.
