Thanks to Boatmadman (& Greggy1964) for two very helpful and easy to understand tutorials.  For a novice at both model boat building and CAD it was (and will continue to be) an extremely beneficial reference.  I have taken the liberty of copying all the relevant posts to two word documents so that now I have a ready offline reference whenever I need it.  Also makes it much easier to do the tutorial offline as I have two monitors and can run the word document on one and Delftship on the other.

Thanks again for all the effort you have put into this.

Regards
Kevin

As part of my current build, I needed a fast rescue boat. Being unable to find one to buy at the size I want - 100mm long I thought I would put to test using freeship to develop a model and print out plank developments and see if the theory held out!

The first pic shows the plates cut out and ready to transfer onto plastic.

The rest of the pics show the build stages as I add the planks.

I only used one station along with the transom due to the size of the thing - it was fiddly!

Anyway - this is where its up to now.

Whilst it has proved that freeship can be used this way, I am not entirely happy with the outcome, but that is due to the difficulty in building at that size I think!

Zaf,

That is a huge ask and would require many hours of work. Why dont you try yourself?

Hi Ian

I've never tried anything like this before - a complete lack of confidence - but having read this thread I think I will now at least have a try. So Thanks for posting the tutorial.

Dave, its a bit like when computers were new have a play you can't break it ..... having said that i have been to the computer repair shops many times   in the past ...  :)


Zaf -
if you can work with 3d models or import them to a cad programme then the likes of  -

TurboSquid
3dStudio
websites have 3d models available to purchase ... nothing for nothing I'm afraid.

Hi Zaf,
That's possibly a bigger question than i have time to give answer to .

If you have a capable Cad programme then it should be easy enough ...

You have to imagine the plans as layers, then take them apart and cut out each layer. These are your frames.

I usually get plans scaled for me.
Others may have better,easier ways but this is the way I scale up images at home:-

Download GIMP  (Gif Image Manipulation Programme)
Open the image
crop the first frame
go to the image tab and select 'scale image' You can do it by millimetres or percentage, which ever is best for you.
check that the print size is the same size
print your first frame

repeat the steps for each frame

If you scale up the side view by the same amount as the frame and print, you can measure the distance between frames.

Thank you Boatmadman, your tutorial has been an inspiration. Your instructions are clear and concise.

Here is one I've had a go at. The draught is a bit deep and the length is probably wrong because I used a cargo ship as a template but I can tweak it.

Re: Delftship tutorial - printing frames
« Reply #123 on: May 26, 2012, 11:23:16 pm »

I have often wondered if I could get frames drawn in DS. Well, I have found its possible, a little fiddly, but possible.


 
The next step was to find a way of printing each frame individually without having to fork out for the full delftship version.
I tried loads of different programs, cad, dxf readers, pdf, xyz, abc…all with no workable solution.
Then, bingo! Found a way.
You need to draw each frame as an individual layer and then open it in bodyplan view with the control net off….
This screen grab shows the midships frame of the model above:


 
Next, right click on the screen and you get a little pop up box, select print and you get…..


 
Now, you can either save it to print later, or print straight from this screen.
Unfortunately, its not quite as easy as it seems, at this stage you will probably have to fiddle around with scaling on your printer to get to the size you want.
Again, fiddly, but it can be done,

Hi all,

Today been fiddling with a new project on freeship. It still is of a Whitby Coble, however it has been re-designed how it should have been. Taken about 6 hours or so to convert offsets in ft, inches and eighths into decimal for freeship.
