    It`s a student project, Me & my friend work on effects of changing geometric parameters of catamarans.
    we put offset in software and then change it & analysis its hydrodynamic behaviors.
    we worked on a simple sample but our teacher said its better to work on a real model.

    Hi Negin. I was working in Abadan last year.

    technically, you wouldn't get any offsets table before you make lines plan at first. So, the typically the designer work flow is:

    1. Design parameters (dimension, area restriction, loadings etc)
    2. Lines Plan or in US called lofting
    3. you can define the offsets table by the lines plan.

    now days, making offsets table is just single click in many software like maxsurf or Orca3D. personally i like orca3D for flexibility with rhino.

    regards

    Offsets are a large part of what you pay a designer for.
    I don't know of how you will get offsets from a production design.

    no there is a category for catamarans!
    I didn't check it recently but there was 5 catamaran models in this website.
