Hello reef3d team,

I have a question regarding the import functionality in reef3d. Is it possible to import two solid bodies (S1) or floating bodies (X180) at the same time? If the answer is yes, I would appreciate any guidance or instructions on how to achieve this.

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Best regards,
Bhargav

Hey,

just combine the two .stls into one. Either in a text editor or by: cat floating_1.stl floating_2.stl > floating.stl/ cat solid_1.stl solid_2.stl > solid.stl in the console.

Be aware that the two floating objects are coupled. They are not interacting as independent objects. This is not yet possible.

Hello Felix,

Thank you so much for responding to my earlier query. I have another question regarding floating bodies. I understand that studying the responses of a hollow floating body in REEF3D is challenging because it tends to sink when placed in the numerical wave tank.

Instead of attempting to simulate a hollow floating body, I'm curious whether it's feasible to replicate the floating body as a solid floating body while maintaining identical properties such as dimensions, moment of inertia, and center of gravity values. Would this approach yield similar responses for both the hollow and solid floating bodies?

Thank you.

Best regards,
Bhargav
