How to make floodable superstructure

Question QA039 :
I have a basic hull and I would like to add an Accomodation, a CO2-room to port and two switchboard rooms on the deck. How do I add these deck houses to the model and make them be part of the displacement and also be able to flood them ?


Answer :
Your Part Maker Run File would include commands like the following.
CREATE HULL\CO2.P `<-- This is buoyant superstructure, a hull component.
...
/
CREATE HULL\SWITCHB.C `<-- Likewise.
...
/
CREATE CO2.P `<-- This is a "tank" -- the internal space.
SHAPE HULL\CO2.P `<-- This means "borrow the shape used by HULL\CO2.P".
/
CREATE SWITCHB.P
SHAPE HULL\SWITCHB.C
/
CREATE SWITCHB.S
SHAPE HULL\SWITCHB.C
/
Making the tanks in this manner is the most efficient, because you are just borrowing the shapes, not making new ones. (COMP usually can be used as a substitute for SHAPE here).
But in general you can make the tank inside the superstructure just as you would in a hull:
CREATE CO2.P
ENDS ...
etc.
FIT HULL\CO2.P
