On this page:
Qastor contains three different pre-defined shapes:
(Floating Production Storage Offloading)
(Single Point Mooring)
These vessel shapes are stored in an XML file, situated in your project folder:
Manually adjusted shape
The XML file is in ASCII format and is easy to edit:
Example of an (imaginary) carrier outline and water line dimensions
All outline points need to be referenced to a user-defined "zero point"
Stb = + starboard side, negative to port
Fwd = + to bow, negative to stern
Hgt = + up, negative down
In this case there are two different shapes (flight deck and water line shape) which have to be entered as separate ones as shown in the highlighted section:
MS Excel, Textpad or similar text editors can be used to import/edit the outline points into the XML format.
<Vertex Stb="x.xxx" Fwd="y.yyy" Hgt="z.zzz"/>
Save the file with extension .XML in:
Select shape in Qastor
In Qastor select your vessel shape in : Transit Setup > Dimension > Shape
All other settings in this dialog can be adjusted as usual.
