Displaying Automatically updating Hydrostatics

38. It is possible to display a reduced number of hydrostatic parameters for an hull type surface in PolyCAD, i.e. Sections, Individual Surfaces, Surfaces List, parametrically generated hull surfaces and X-Topology surfaces. Choose the button on the tool bar. If a hull is already selected, the hydrostatics will be calculated.  Alternatively, select the hull surface in the graphics window that you want to perform the calculations on and the select button will enable.  The hydrostatics values will update as the hull form is changed.

39. Change the draught to the same value the hull was generated for, 4.1m.
