    Hi,
    I am trying to model a container ship hull form based on an existing lines plan. As you may notice from the attached image, Im having issues at the bulbous bow and skeg end while generating trimeshes and NURB surfaces. Please advice how I can fix these issues.
    Thanks in advance.

    Try to define the bulb as a surface, independent of the rest of the hull.

    Hi TANSL,
    Im quite new to Maxsurf Modeler. I have 2 section data and a longitudinal profile for the bow that I want to model. Once I have modeled the Hull, what are the steps to follow inorder to add a bulbous bow to it as a separate surface. I dont quite understand the steps to be followed. Is there any tutorial videos that I can refer?

    Do as many people do, create the model with other software and export it to Maxsurf.

    What i do is split the hull up completely into two seperate sections, under geometry start an aft and a foreward section file and join them through bonding. It end up simplifying your view in the body plan.

    For the hull have three seperate surfaces for the bottom, turn of the bilge and then top sides.
