Page 11 Modeling a Sailboat: Finish up the hull

Save your file, and merge the b6.3dm file or open boat6.3dm

The 'transom' is the rear panel of the boat, shown in white below. The red line below indicates an important curve that forms the top of the transom, running from one side of the hull to the other.

In the right view, select the point shown below and drag it about 5 units to the left. The hull is now prepared for a mirror operation.

From the right view, select the hull, hit Mirror, and enter '0'. Hold down the Shift key (to temporarily activate Ortho), move your cursor straight upwards, and click to define the end point of the axis of reflection. The mirrored result is shown below.
