    I continue to use FreeCAD and I found an easy way to rebuild the hulls made with subdivision surfaces in CAD surfaces, to export from Blender in Iges format I used an add-on that exports subdivision surfaces in IGES patches, from which it is possible to extrapolate the necessary curves for the surfaces.
    Of course, this workflow can also be used with other 3D CADs.
    This is the add-on for Blender

    Here a video on DailyMotion that show the result of that.

    Hi,

    nice work done here. I am also trying some things with FreeCAD at the moment. It would be great to have some looks into your FreeCAD files to see your approaches in detail. Would you maybe share the file for the hull quoted below as well as for the USS-PT564? I am very interested in the chined hulls.

    Many thanks and best regards
    Nico

    Hi I have prepared the USS-PT564 file, it is complete with everything but being an experiment it could be a bit messy.
    I hope this helps, however I can't do much more at the moment so I won't be able to answer any questions as I'm busy with other things.
    I would also like to share all the other models I've made with FreeCAD where I've been trying to make multiple types of hulls.

    Greetings.
