    Hello,
    I have drawn lines plan from offset. It is created in Autocad. Now I wanna import this lines plan in Maxsurf to do resistance and other hydrostatics calculation. How can I do this? I am not very comfortable with Maxsurf. I am new in Maxsurf.
    Thanks in advance. :D

    You can export them in dxf format but you must first put the lines in the space in AutocAD. You can also create the surface model in AutoCAD and export it in igs format to MaxSurf.
    If you don't get it, send me the AutoCAD file you have to see if I can help you.

    I don't know any videos on this subject.
    Can you show me your file in AutoCAD?

    You need to put the frames in their true place in space. Something similar to what is seen in the attached picture. With these lines as a base, you can build the 3D surface model, in AutoCAD or Maxsurf (if you export them as 3D Polylines) Body Lines.jpg

    I'm sorry but I haven't done anything with your drawing. The image refers to one of my ships. If you want it, I can give it to you.
