Hello!

Looking at the SpringSharp software

http://www.springsharp.com/ (used to design virtual warships), i've got following idea: It will be good to have visual 3D model of the designed ship (ShpringSharp gives only text data), and i've realised that it is possible.

I'm writing a script, where by specifying few ship's parameters, you can receive a 3D model of this ship.

Here is the current version of the script. I'm still working on it. Later will be implemented calculation of different block coefficients ("fatness") of the ship (for now block coefficient can be only 0.523 - corresponding to a cruiser).

This version implement "Cruiser stern". In later versions, i'll try to implement also transom and round sterns as a choice.

To create your own ship 3D model, open the script file , and modify the parameters on top of the script:

float $WLL; $WLL = 192; /*waterline length*/

float $WLB; $WLB = 20.8; /*beam*/

float $WLD; $WLD = 4.9; /*drought*/

float $BCF; $BCF = 6.1; /*Board Forecastle Front*/

float $BCA; $BCA = 5.3; /*Board Forecastle Aft*/

float $BFF; $BFF = 5.3; /*Board Fore Deck Front*/

float $BFA; $BFA = 5.3; /*Boatd Fore Deck Aft*/

float $BAF; $BAF = 3.0; /*Board Aft Deck Front*/

float $BAA; $BAA = 3.0; /*Boatd Aft Deck Aft*/

float $BQF; $BQF = 3.0; /*Board Quarterdeck Front*/

float $BQA; $BQA = 3.0; /*Boatd Quarterdeck Aft*/

float $ANGB; $ANGB = 20; /*bow angle*/

float $PFC; $PFC = 20; /*forecastle as percent of the hull length*/

float $PFD; $PFD = 30;/*fore deck as percent of the hull length*/

float $PQD; $PQD = 20;/*quarterdeck as percent of the hull length*/

float $PAD; $PAD = 100 - $PFC - $PFD - $PQD; /*aft deck as percent of the hull length*/

All data is in meters.
