    hello everyone!
    I using Maxsurf structure modul to design a fishing ship's structure. I have problems when try to add strigers on the starboard ( which below the neutral (offset axis )). if I tick the symmetrical in Maxsurf modeler modul, it will offset the stringers through neutral axis. But i want to have different structure between starboard and port.
    Pleas, help me to solve problems. Thanks!

    I'm sure MaxSurf allows you to define whether a reinforcement is symmetrical or it is not. Search the online help of the application.

    That's right. By default if the underlying surface is symmetrical then the stringer will be symmetrical. However there is a check box in the Stringer Properties dialog box which allows you to turn off the symmetrical setting. Not however that you will need a asymmetrical surface in Maxsurf Modeler on which you can draw your asymmetrical stringers.
