    Hi, I'm new in this forum but I've been reading it for a while.
    Few days ago I decided to build my first scale model of a boat and by searching on the web I found the delftship and this forum and started to design the hull of a jolly boat like design, but the problem is, how do I extract the linesplan of a sloped stern on delftship? I mean, when I export the linesplan to dxf format, the stern is a simple projection of the sloped one designed on delftship. I don't know if I made me clear, I'm still learning English, so I attached the dxf and fbm files. Thank for any help!

    You could manually move the points. Or uses the rotate function.

    Thanks for you Answer! But the point is that I want that stern sloped, but the linesplans created when I click on lines button is a paralel projection with distortion. I made an image to explain better what I mean.

    Ok, first off close up the transom and make it a face. Best to check the manual for this. But, if you hold down the ctrl button and click the points in series, then hit the add new face button, you should end up with a new face. you can then find the expanded transom shape in the unfold section under tools.

    I use Freeship, which should be almost identical to Delftship (except that it is free).

    These are the steps to do:

    And this is the end result (it could look different in case of Delftship):

    Hope it will help. :)

    Cheers

    You may be able to create a true projection of the shape of the stern as a developeable surface, using the Unfold command. Select Tools/unfold. However, it will attempt to unfold everything; that is lay all surfaces flat. You will have to deselect everything except the transom. Then zoom in on the transom. You can then save it to a dxf file or simply print it.

    I have a copy of the Freeship Manual in French if you are more comfortable with that than English. Most of what is in the Freeship manual applies to Deltfship.

    Ah, ok. I have misunderstood the questions. Thought that wlldm didn't know how to export to dxf.
