Click the define control tutorixl off, then on again, this removes any delftshlp selected point. I havent used it myself, so cannot comment on it, but its here: No doubt you will have seen the little pop up box shown above. Feel free to use, to correct, to modify, adjust and to offer this manual to download.

Its a slow process but satisfying, especially when you start building a model you designed yourself. I know I said we tutoriql look at the deck line next, but I think the chine line needs more attention first. Once you are reasonably happy with that shape, we will look at putting the chine line in. This will allow us to see an uncluttered view of what we have so far.

Be sure you really know the software use ttorial begining your “great work”. I down loaded Delftship and had a play could not get it to work.

You have first to understand that for designing a ship you need to master two things: I have already found some gems in there that I hadn’t considered. Now I have just noticed that there is an edge missing where I have circled above, so, to put that right, select the two points shown: Right click in the perspective window and select mode: Select the control net on and have a look at the bow area.


You tutorkal have something like this: I think it’s better to learn by playing with Delftship first, letting your imagination wander, like I did by drawn my avatar a flying boat.

I am planning on making a plywood and fibreglass windsurfer.

Many thanks for any help Owen. Of course, you need to fair the whole hull using this method, this is where it becomes time consuming and sometimes frustrating! Now, I think we should refine the shape of the deck a little, then delfthip can refine the hull shape between deck and keel: In the profile view, left click and hold on one of the control points that is out of line and drag it until the red line looks better.

Alternatively, you can increase the control points in a particular area by selecting the lines in that area and splitting them. And here with a nice bow shape at the deck.

This looks wrong because we have extruded every point equally, despite the curve of the deck. Lets make that bow look a bit better now. Your circumstances or experience may be different.


Excellent job, I’ve used this program on and off for a few years and never figured out the transom bit Thank You Nick. But it takes a lot to dishearten me.

When you do a line plan and in the head on view to the bow you can see all the frames. What a pity to get disheartened due to too much haste! Work in the plan view window whilst doing this, you can see the shape change delftsjip as you tutorual. You should have something similar to this: Select all the points shown below, then, go to transform, move and enter Time will tell how it behaves on the water though!

Just to demo what you will see if you have a bad edlftship I will move a point on my plan view: Forum posts represent the experience, opinion, and view of individual users. Next, I think we will close the transom using the extrude tool.

I think it needs to be lowered at the bow, so here goes. Repeat that for the other out of line points, then turn off the control net to see the actual bow line.

Ok then, after some thought I think a relatively simple hull to demonstrate how the program works is the best way, so, lets begin!
