  1. Admiralty Models has been working with a very talented 3D computer modeler who is building us a Swan class ship model (Pegasus). Besides the exceptional quality of his work, I can see the enormous benefit of a 3D model in showing how all the various pieces fit together. As the model's construction closely follows the actual vessel, it's build may be viewed in sequential layers. Our builder is precisely following the four volume Fully Framed Ship Model series of books, bringing David Antscherl's seminal work to life. In the near future, we will be offering the fully framed and fitted out comput
  2. Hello, This is my 3D build log for HMS Pandora. The build was started in February 2011, and it is still in progress. The primary references include the Anatomy of the Ship: The 24-gun Frigate Pandora (the plans), The Shipbuilder's Repository (it contains the dimensions and the scantlings of HMS Porcupine, which is of the same class as the Pandora), and the “Swan” Series. Many other books and online resources are also referred to. I began with drafting a 2D drawing of the ship, and then I imported different parts of the 2D drawing into Solidworks to guide the 3D building process.
  3. I'm a complete CAD nerd. That is to say, I know my way around software - I should as a programmer (it seems) - but CAD is new to me. I've been looking for programs - preferably free, yes I'm Dutch - which could be used by a layman. So far I've tried DELFTship, and autoCAD. DELFTship is cumbersome, and unfortunately autoCAD is rather expensive for what it will be used. Today I found another program: Draftsight. It's free, 2D and 3D, uses DXF files, runs on Windows/Linux/MAC. So I'll try this one, and have a look at the - hopefully not to complicated - engine under the hood. (Downloa
  4. Hello All, I've recently downloaded the latest version of Sketchup and intend to start working on some plans. I apologize if some of my questions have been covered elsewhere or if it becomes immediately obvious that my ambitions far exceed my potential skill, but here goes. First, is there a way to import a scanned (jpeg or other type of image file) of a plan into Sketchup to begin adding lines, etc.? Also, is there anyone here that is using Sketchup for a 2D set of plans to develop framing and working drawings for a ship model? I've seen quite a few 3D discussions, but someone's s
  5. I recently learned about a browser based 3D CAD program which is able to run on Windows and Mac platforms as well as mobile devices. https://www.onshape.com/ This program offers a free version and a paid version. So I signed up for the free version and quickyly learned that my 10 yr old 64bit computer's Radeon graphics card does not support webGL which is required to run this program on your web browser, tablet or phone. Also, your browser must also support webGL and most modern web browsers like Firefox and Chrome support this feature but some browsers disable this feature because
  6. I've been playing with the free version of DelftShip (www.delftship.net) for creating hull designs. I've done quite a few designs by hand but I've never been able to see how I could create a faired hull with 2D CAD: it would be too cumbersome. As an test, I created a model of a 30 m "frigate". Although I didn't use all the tools for fairing the lines, it only took my about three hours to create this design. I found the tools for pushing and pulling the hull into shape reasonable intuitive. I've attached some of the output files: Lines drawing Table of waterline offsets (program
  7. I had created the attached as a guide to interpret the Zebra View of my Hull and offer it here for others ( hoping it has some value as I have yet to "get it" .....but haven't given up yet!) I include a Zebra View image of my hull. if anyone understands Zebra View and can offer some insight it would be greatly appreciated. Alan TRYING TO MAKING SENSE OF THE ZEBRA VIEW IN SOLIDWORKS.pdf
  8. Hi. I am just getting into CAD modeling and I have Solidworks ver 2005. I am learning the very basics at the moment. Not easy at when your over 60. The purpose of learning this is I want to do a very detailed cross section of the Victory. My question is... Is there anyone else out there using Solidworks ?? I have found a few very good Utube starter videos. Any advice apart from telling me to change software is welcome (as I already own Solidworks the cost will kill the project). Many thanks Antony.
