    Dear Sir,
    I produced a boat model, and calculate the hydro by rhinomarine.

    I give the disp. and LCG and VCG then it output the files.

    Could anyone give me a guide about the out-put data?

    I want to draw the waterline with trim condition on the lines.
    But, I didn't under the out-put data.

    I found the draft=966 trim=-1.86
    where the draft mean? where is the basic point?

    Its all relative to 3D model space. The easiest way of getting you waterline is to let Rhinomarine either transform the model to the floatation plane, or insert a plane (with no transformation) at the floatation plane. Look for the check box in the Rhinomarine dialogue on the second screen.

    I hope this helps
