    G'day from Australia,

    I have a small issue that I hope somebody here may be able to give me help with. I can't seem to be able to get the program to draw in waterlines on finished hulls.

    Any help would be appreciated

    Tony

    HullForm works only by giving X and Y coordinates of lines, not per waterline. If you want to view waterline you have to go to view option and assign the waterlines from base or from designed waterline. You can only view. I haven't tried exporting it.

    You can however draw waterlines by assigning each individual lines a constant level. Meaning the Y level is all the same much like the designed waterline.

    Thanks for that I haven't managed to sort out Assigned waterlines. every time i click on it nothing happens. I'll go back and try again.
    I'm doing an IOM class rc yacht. Maybe I should just be buying from you?

    Thanks again
