Question QA059 :
I am trying to model an unsymmetrical tank with locus statements although when displayed the starboard side does not appear on screen. Here is my run file to create the tank.
Create lbp.p locus @-45 = 0,0 7.975,0 7.975,8 1.1,8.3 0,8.3 0,1.405 -0.55,1.405 -0.55,0 0,0 locus @-65 = 0,0 7.975,0 7.975,8 1.1,8.3 0,8.3 0,1.405 -0.55,1.405 -0.55,0 0,0 fit hull /


Answer
The default inboard is zero, therefore an inboard statement must be given before the fit hull statement.
Create lbp.plocus @ -45 = t1,v1 t2,v2 t3,v3locus @ -65 = t1,v1 t2,v2 t3,v3inboard -0.55fit hull/
