Hi, scale is 1:24 although it's drawn from 3-view sketches so it's not very dimensionally exact.

For those wondering about the scale. I haven't been so precise in picking a scale, it was more a matter of resizing until it was conveniently printable and suitable size for the equipment I had. This sketch shows a couple of dimensions at least, so you get a general idea of the size.

I have been trying figure out about the scale. If the scale is 1/24 in original stl files the length of ca 66,25 cm is correct.
But when I put the Hull section 1 in Cura and I see the measurement don´t add up.

What I know the boat in 1/1 is 3.80 meters wide. But when I see that the hull is 18,5 cm instead of the 15,83cm then something is off.
According to what I can calculate the boat would be almost 4.5 meters wide. Or am I wrong?

If I still want this on scale 1/24 should I just adjust so the pieces are all 15,83cm wide or what can I do?

I guess if I need changing hull parts I need to change everything or?

To be honest, I haven't checked the dimension for scale accuracy, 1:24 was the closest I could come to when I tried to find what scale it ended up. I didn't choose a scale, I adjusted the size until I thought I had a suitable size for the purpose. I used the drawings attached and thought it looked close enough for my taste. :) I simply put in the side view and also attached the top view and adjusted it so that the length of both were identical. I also put in the front and rear views and adjusted them, but only to match each other, not to mach a certain scale dimension.

What you want to do is up to you, it's basically a question if you think the scale look is good enough? :) I would definately not change the aspect ratio of the parts, that will ruin the roundness of the water jet outlets for example. But if you are OK with adjusting those pre-print, then you could for sure adjust the width. But keep in mind then that you will have to adjust all parts accordingly and I would really not think that work was worth it personally.
