Create ship instance
In order to create a Ship instance select s60 geometry and execute the ship creation tool (Ship design → Create a new ship).
Creating ship task dialogue and some annotations at 3D view will shown. The annotations will removed when you close Ship creation tool, so don't worry about this.
Most relevant ship data must be introduced (Ship uses a progressive data introduction system, so basic operations can be performed knowing only basic ship data, more information is needed as the operations become more complex).
Main dimensions must be introduced here:
- Length: Length between perpendiculars, 25.5 m for this ship.
- Beam: Total ship beam, 3.389 m for this ship.
- Draft: Design draft, 1.0 m for this ship.
Usually the Length between perpendiculars depends on design draft, so if you don't know what is the length of your ship you can set draft, and fit length in order to get bow and draft intersection.
Same process is valid for Beam fit. Note that requested value is total beam, but annotation is only refered to starboard half ship.
When you press Accept button program creates your new Ship instance called Ship at Tags & Attributes dialog. We don't need geometry anymore, so you can hide it.
From here onwards, you must have Ship selected before you execute any Ship tool.
