thanks Alan it helps to make sense of some of the stuff for me. later today I will mess with some of the stations and will see if I get them right. I think once i start seeing it in 3 dimensions it may make more sense to me

are you using the other plan views to lay out the stations?

I believe you need to be working off plans 6a thru 10a (corrected lines)

 

You can use a set of dividers and measure directly off the half breadth and starboard profile plans to plot your points.

I suspect that the two dimensions are to allow for bevelling the frames. Cut to the larger of the two measurements, by the time the bevels are cut and the framing faired, the width should be no less than the smaller dimension.

It is funny Druxey that I focused on the one dual dimension and didn't see the many others!

 

I am finding lately that I need to zoom in considerably to read stuff and am using a magnifying glass in the work shop and at the office.

Thank goodness for 27" monitors.

Going for a needle in my eye next week and hoping after two more to follow that my eyesight improves considerably.

Either that or it bloody well better stimulate hair growth up top.

 

Joe, if I may call you Joe, having looked at all those drawings once more this afternoon I am very jealous.... they really are marvellous.

thanks guys and Alan no need to be jealous I shared )) also don't forget to get the sailing schooner drawings I posted too ))

 

right now I am setting up all the planes etc on the drawings for the stations etc. which is totally time consuming due to dimensions offsetting etc. I got everything made up now for the assy but now a couple more hours needed to lock the station planes i created into place in the assy

 

85 Planes for the front half the stations and 85 for the back side so 170 planes to do a top front and right plane mate hehe

Well I got all the image planes made and mated into the proper locations. I took the planes and did intersect curve to them from my loft and the front 90% of the ship turned out beautiful. I still need to figure out the transom area but will take a break for now while I make all my 3D stations. it is always nice to take a break when something is driving you nuts. who knows maybe someone else with tons more experience, while playing with cad will have it figured out while I work on the other stuff

well I got the basic middle station shape my problem is going to be finding an easy way yo get the rest of them and have a smooth transition between each without having the starved horse look. too bad the inner and outer portions werent the same shape but nooooo that would be too easy hehehe

looking good.

I remember how fulfilling it was to finally see my 2D sketches finally take 3D shape.

and so now imagining building it is getting easier

thanks taking a short break from them to learn abt more stuff but am about to start a build thread got the Sloop Mediator. it is like 49" by 29" and am putting together in solidworks in order to adjust notches from enlarging the drawings and also to make sure it goes together properly
