    Are there any of the hull design programs that can draw the vessel by loading in a table of offsets?

    I'm about to start playing with these things for the first time, but I have a table of offsets for a very similar hull to start off with.

    Yep... probably a dumb question. But if I don't ask I won't learn.

    Thanks all.
    John

    That would be good, never heard of it.
    I have CAD and MaxSurf and Rhino, but none of these can do that.

    failing the above

    Paramarine version 6 does it all very neatly...and a whole lot more too. But it is not free.

    Thanks all. I appreciate your willingness to answer what must seem like idiot questions, most of which you seem to have answered before. Much appreciated.
