    Read Manual First. It tells everything. But if u trimmed any surface in Rhino, after import to maxsurf it will be untrimmed. so avoid trimming in Rhino or make that surface in maxsurf.

    For smoothing the lines you have to take some stations, waterlines and buttocks there and by control point manipulation you have to make those lines fair. Whenever you drag any point the contours will be updated automatically.

    I suggest ging the other way around. First design the hull in Maxsurf, it´s much easier to fair than on Rhino. Then import the hull into Rhino and continue with more detailed deck or appendages surfaces.
