I have this model of a boat that I have been working on for some time now. It will be 3D printed in 4 sections and then raced on a solar boat competition. I’ve spent a lot of time on it, and it’s the most complex model I have done so far because I’ve had to ensure that everything is solid. Unfortunately, I printed out a small scale prototype and the boat does not float; the pontoons are too small.
To fix this, I want to perform a seemingly impossible task. The pontoons need to be stretched a bit inwards to make them larger. This has to be done while maintaining the integrity of the rest of the model. Here is a rough sketch of what I need:
Is this possible? What is the easiest way? Or do I just need to redo the entire model? I have Pro, so I was thinking the solid tools may help. I have attached the file at the beginning if you’d like to try it.
