    having difficulties in spotting the right procedure on hull fairing....tutorials do not seem helpful at all
    tks

    turn on curvature graph for some curve in the area of concern, then nudge the control points until the curvature graph looks nice and continuous.

    Yades,

    Marshmat has given you one way; another is to use the Gaussian curvature view.

    that means the procedure is not automatically done like in maxsurf but requires a manual approach based on a visual assessement of the results? seems to me a bit akward ?! is'n it? i recon the software should assessed that the line processed is faired enough.......:confused: or may be I have not quite understood what you really mean

    tks

    having the control net on which menu/command do you work with on a step by step basis in order to fair e.g. a water line. :confused:
    It seems to me a bit difficult to assess the fairness of a line (hence of a surface) based on a simple visual assessment of a gaussian representation

    tks yr help

    That's the difference between a good free program, and a good $5000 program.
    If you think a bit when making controlcurves, it is very quick and easy to get a perfectly fair hull with the curvature graphs. Gaussian view is really handy in areas where there are hollows, or transitions between flat and curved areas.

    fine now is clear enough. If I require automatically performed hull fairing (i.e. activating a function smoothing the control points and consequently the reference hull line) I wd need a product like maxsurf or similar, isnt'it?
    Now it's clear enough

    tks yrs

    Using a small number of control points will produce a quite smooth surface. If you are trying to precisely duplicate an already existing design you may need to use a lot of points and use the techniques already mentioned.
