    I have to design a 170 m long tanker ship. I'm trying to create a surface by adding a marker. I couldn't create a very smooth surface and couldn't add bulbous bows.
    I have very limited time, can you please help me?

    Don't try to create a single surface for the entire hull. Divide it into several zones, one surface for each zone, and especially create a separate surface for the bulb. Maxsurf will know what to do with them.

    First of all, thank you for your answer. Is it possible to combine different surfaces in Maxsurf?

    Yes, of course, it is not only possible but it is normal to work with many surfaces. The most complete version of Maxsurf allows working with a huge number (I don't know the limit value) of surfaces.

    Got it, sir. I could not find tutorials or videos on Bulb drawing. If you have information, can you share it with me?

    No, sorry, I don´t have such information.
    Do something similar to what you did with the hull. Define various sections of the bulb using their mark points and create with them the surface (or surfaces) of the bulb.
    A tip: it is enough that you draw only half a hull and tell Maxsurf that the surfaces are symmetrical
