Drawing take-offs, or "plans for plywood" boa

    Hello All.  I just recently found and started playing with FreeShip.   I have been trying to come up with a plan for a small personal trimaran.  I want to build something light, and cheap that I could assemble at the beach, and take off for a few hours of (hopefully) blistering speed.   I have a hull drawn up in FS, but I'm wondering if anyone out there knows if FS can generate 2D measured views of the chine panels?  Or, said another way, is there a way to use freeship to generate cutting templates?

      Yes. To get cutting templates in Freeship you want to "Develop Plates" under Tools drop down. You can export to dxf or bitmap files.

      You must have Interior Edges selected turned on for this to work.
