There is a list of software here on the forum but i can give you some examples:
Here is a list of software for lines fairing:
Freeship, Maxsurf, Autoship, FastShip, ProSurf.
Also there are other programs like
Rhino, Touchcad, Shipcam, Foran, Tribon, SeaSolution and many more
you can start with FreeShip, on top of this software's if you want to pursue more design detailing using software you may need other software for design like for calculations of speed and stability as well a CAD program and maybe a 3D modeler like Rhino.
I use Rhino and Foran-Fsurf but im not statisfied with those.
so im searching for something better.
I heard that SeaSolution is good but im interested for Fastship but if someone can tell me who have experiences with Fastship it is possible import the 3d curve of form (constructive frames) and make all form by this curves??
New to boat design, very good at old school tooling, but?
Hi I currently work for Kal Kustom Ent. tooling reinell and blue water boats, I'm learning all the tricks of trade from an older man who has designed 100'S of boats that were actually produced. However i feel i'm in the stone age at the drafting table. How can i possably keep up? I can tool a boat from raw materials, making plug and mold, but need to further my skills in computer aided drafting. I've downloaded a eval. program of rhino3d and think its pretty cool. But im pretty confused with some of it. Do you know what steps i need to take? maybe a more simple prog? any certain training? i would appreciate any help.
