    Good Evening,
    I am Diganta Ghosh from India studying Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering in Indian Maritime University, Visakhapatnam.

    My final year project is to design a Bulk Carrier 58000 Dwt.
    My concept design has been done.

    I need some guidance to Create lines plan for my ship. Either using FORMDATA or BSRA series or from Parent Hull method using lines distortion.

    Any kind of help would be appreciated.

    Thank You

    What exactly do you need, help to draw some shapes that you already have or help to define those shapes?
    In any case, what information do you have at this time?.

    I already have my length parameters and Block Coefficient.
    Please Guide me to make the lines plan.

    Look for the shapes of a similar vessel and apply a transformation, change of scale, for example.

    What are her main particulars?

    Start working with the forms of post # 4 verifying that the parameters of your ship are met or changing shapes, as appropriate, to achieve it.
    Simple.

    It would be really great if I could get the main vessel particulars of the ship of post #4.

    The first thing you have to do is vectorize that picture. Then you must adapt these shapes to the breadth and the depth of your boat. Done that, divide the length between perpendiculars in 20 sections and assign each of them the corresponding section of the picture.
    If you have AutoCAD, I can explain how to do it, or do it for you, with him.

    Yes, I have AutoCAD. Please do explain. This is my first project. So am sorry if I come across as dumb.

    First, as I told you previously, you must vectorize that picture.
    In the attached file you will see the procedure to follow, although it is an example of a totally different boat. I hope it helps you.

    Thank You for the advice. I just wanted to know if I could get the lines plan of a bulk carrier with a bulbous bow. So that i could use line distortion method to get lines plan of my ship.

    Well, I thought I was answering your question exactly. I have provided you with the cross sections of a Bulk Carrier with Bulb in the bow that, I believe, is what you needed. Now the only thing I wanted was to explain to you how you should use them following a very simple procedure. Apparently I have not understood anything of what you needed. I'm sorry I did not succeed. Keep trying on your own and good luck.
