    I am currently learning how to use the software AVEVA marine. I have used most of the initial design sections in and am fairly confident using them.
    However, when using it i have only ever used offset data that has been given to me in a .cxml file from a bais ship and edited it from there.

    I want to start a bulk carrier project but i don't have any offset data or know how to get the initial hull form or the best way to go about making my own hull.

    Any advice would be helpful.
    Thanks

    Aveva marine is not that good for creating hull form. better use delftship or rhino or maxsurf to make your own hull and then import it to aveva marine for next phases. aveva marine is mainly used for structure and outfitting works.

    Thanks for the advice. Since making this feed I have made a hullform using rhino but I'm struggling to export to AVEVA. I can't find any file formats that are comparable between the software. Does anyone know the best way I can do it?

    I don't know Aveva but all important programs can export / import file in igs format. Rhino can do it.

    As far as I can work out the only files that can be imported to AVEVA are
    Hgn. form design files
    Blines. line files
    Dm. surface/compartment files
    Calc. calc/hydro files
    Bri. britfair files
    Dml. hull form files
    Cxml. calculation geometry files

    you will import the hull in Surface modul,

    If you want to put to Lines module, then try with BRI format, there was a convert of this in Tribon software, have not used long time, so cant remember well. If you are using legal version of the software, you must take training first ! its not a easy software.

    I'm getting training at the moment but trying to work this out in my break.
    How do you suggest I get the file into the dm file type for the surface module?
