Orthogonal Plate names

Orthogonal plates are named based on their ortho orientation, position and the grid definition

X orthos

These are oriented in the transverse plane of the ship; the YZ plane

If a plate touches a defined gridframe within gridprecision it is named after the frame

eg F1 or F15

If a plate lies between frames, it is named after the lowest Frame with a suffix of the offset from that frame. The offset is set by the closest side from the previous frame-line

eg F1+200 or F8+349

Y orthos

These are oriented in the longitudinal plane of the ship; the XZ plane

Plates are named by the point farthest from the CenterLine

Longitudinal Portside plates (positive Y value) are named

LP with a suffix of the farthest point form centerline

eg LP1250

Longitudinal Starboard plates (negative Y value) are named

LS with a suffix of the farthest point form centerline

eg LS530

Plates that cross or touch the Longitudinal Centerline are named

LCL

Z orthos

These are oriented in the waterline plane of the ship; the XY plane

Waterline orthogonal Plates are named W with a suffix of the lowest point

eg W3450 or W200
