My new boat

Post by Shu » Mon May 12, 2008 4:40 am

I thought I'd let folks follow along as I build my new boat. Following the class convention, we'll call it a Shumaker 2. It will have all the goodies my current boat does not, including racks, foiling rudder, the ability to hold copious amounts of rig tension, etc.

Here is a funky looking perspective drawing. When I figure out how to print a Rhino file in the rendered format, I'll post that.

I've sent files off to Third Coast Composites, where they will CNC cut the bulkheads out of 2 sheets of Okoume plywood, and send it to me in a neat little box not much more than 2 ft x 4ft x 6in. Here's the layout of the bulkheads.

Actually they're fine. Click on them and view them full size. They look bad because they're raster drawings that have been scaled. They don't scale well without a resample.

Dave,
Wider sides? Actually there is very little flare, if that is what you're talking about.

Yeah, it's Rhino. I'll try saving the render as a bit map. Actually, I don't like the render, as it tends to simplify the shape into a series of large facets. The shaded viewport looks much better, even though you can see some of the wireframe. When I printed from the shaded viewport, it only showed the wireframe, without the shading. That is what I posted.

how familiar are you with the program? If you email it to me i can see if i can get a decent render.

Also, try right clicking the render icon, and then adjusting the render dimensions to a larger size. Are you adjusting the object properties before you render? It may come out just grey when you dont. Sometimes Rhino doesnt like the designs and will facet it like you said. If you use the "Rebuild" command and select the surface you want to rebuild, and up the "u" and "v" lines it should come out to a fair-er surface.

After fussing with the render settings, I was able to get a decent rendering. However, the size is 2.75 MB, far above the 400 KB allowed here. Still can't get the surface colors to show though. I'm gonna give it a break and work on it more tomorrow.

In the meantime here is a brute force version - printed then scanned.

I don't think it would be fair to the real designers like Bieker, Morrison, etc. if I post what amounts to offsets for anyone to use for free. But maybe that's all this design is worth...

looks alot better.

What i would do is render it at a high resolution (and a big file) and then compress it down in paint or something till its 400kb.

To get the colors to work, click the surface, then use the little icon that looks like a circular rainbow. in the drop down, change the settings to "material" and in "basic" change the color. If you want a decent showing of what it will look like, click on the window you are working in and in the command line type "renderedviewpoint"

Hope that helps.
