A hull lines view style uses the HullLinesRuleSets.DefaultRuleSet rule set, which provides a list of source actions. Each source draws specific types of items and applies drawing rules to the items based on conditions allowed in the source. Using the Tools > Define View Style command in the Drawings and Reports task, you specify the source/condition combination, queries, view area properties, labels, and add-on rulesets you want to use for your drawing view style.

HullLinesRuleSets.DefaultRuleSet

This rule set is used for all hull lines drawings, such as body plan drawings.

Hull lines are created by the intersection of a grid plane with the hull surface.

Source Items (Actions tab)

The rule set and the source/condition definitions are defined on the Action tab of the Edit Ruleset View Style dialog box. For more information, see Actions Tab (Edit Ruleset View Style Dialog Box).

The following options are available in the Source field:

View Queries (Query tab)

View query properties are defined on the Query tab of the Edit Ruleset View Style dialog box. For more information, see Query Tab (Edit Ruleset View Style Dialog Box).

The following options are available in the Query field:

  1. Hull Plate System(s)

    Hull plate systems to be used for the hull lines drawings.

  2. Separation Plane X (Optional)

    Frame (transverse) grid plane (along the X-axis) used as a separation or trimming plane, depending on the hull line view style:

    • Body Plan (Transverse) - Used as a separation plane for gathering forward and aft hull lines, usually at or near midship.

    • Plan (Waterline) View - Used as a trimming plane to clip the hull.

    • Profile (Buttock) View - Used as a trimming plane to clip the hull

  3. Separation Plane Y (Optional)

    Buttock (longitudinal) grid plane (along the Y-axis) used as a separation or trimming plane, depending on the hull line view style:

    • Body plan (Transverse) - Used as a trimming plane for drawing the port or starboard sides of hull lines, usually at longitudinal centerline.

    • Plan (Waterline) View - Used as a trimming plane for drawing the port or starboard sides of hull lines, usually at longitudinal centerline.

    • Profile (Buttock) View - Used as a separation plane for port and starboard hull lines, usually at longitudinal centerline.

  4. Separation Plane Z (Optional)

    Waterline (deck) grid plane (along the Z-axis) used as a separation or trimming plane, depending on the hull line view style:

    • Body plan (Transverse) - Used as a trimming plane to clip the hull below the top.

    • Plan (Waterline) View - Used as a separation plane for gathering top and bottom hull lines.

    • Profile (Buttock) View - Used as a trimming plane to clip the hull.

If a separation plane is not selected and is required for gathering or drawing hull lines, the software selects one based on the calculated midpoint of the appropriate axis. Separation planes for clipping the hull are not required.
