    Hey all, Ive created an asymmetrical proa hull and trying to create the offsets using <Data\create offsets> but each time I do it, nothing happens. The buttons <Go to Offsets> and the others related are still greyed out. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Mystrwizard good to see you got your asymmetric hull, for your present problem have you created sections and waterlines as maxsurf needs something to measure too. Also because the hull is asymmetric you can only calculate the offsets for one side of the hull at a time.
