    I am hoping someone else's CAD library has a similar basic flare hull design and would be willing to share it with me. Does anyone's library have dxf, iges files with a similar flared trimaran hull design? :confused: (see example pictures) Are you willing to share it?

    I am currently running the old Maxsurf software (yes I know its outdated, like me...lol) I never could understand the Rhino programs. Unfortunately the Maxsurf I have doesn't have hardly anything in the library as a starting point like the newer software programs do.

    I am starting my design over form scratch again do to economics and materiel change and going a different route completely , if someone has a flared trimaran (vaka) hull design and willing to share it would be a big help to me :D

    I do not have anything about that and I doubt if anyone has something he wants to share.
    If you have a body lines plan of your boat in Autocad, I could create a model for Maxsurf.

    Goldhunter 2 what version of maxsurf do you have. I have a 3 surface generic tri hull which you could adapt.
