Tech/Engineering / yacht design software
French term or phrase: tableau de cote
Naval architecture.
3D modelling / 2D design software.

"Tableau de cote" in the last sentence.

« Comme pour les fittings, un fichier de carènes est livré avec le logiciel.
Ce fichier est modifiable et vous permettra de constituer votre propre base de données.
Les profils XYZ sont pré-enregistrés dans un fichier, et permettent de créer facilement vos quilles, safrans, foils, barre de flèche....
Ce fichier est modifiable et un tableau de cote vous permettra de rentrer vos propre profils. »

In fact, the text has already been translated in part and I am doing a revision/correction of the text.

Here's what has been suggested for the last sentence :

"This file can be updated through an offset file in order to get your own library."

Any computer buffs out there?

Been ploughing through my naval architecture text books and found that the distances of the various intersection points from the middle line plane are called "offsets". I'm going with "offset table".
