    Hello once again!
    Got myself delftship and maxflow, also rhino, which one of them suits best for hull modeling and cfd tests?
    How should i start, modeling hull first and then importing it in cfd software, or modeling bottom side of the hull in some other software, like maya and then adjust curves in cfd software?

    How to start? Start from reading some books on boat/ship design...

    What CFD software do you plan to use?

    Do you want to design an original hull shape, or reproduce an existing hull shape?

    What type of hull shape?

    If you want to reproduce an existing hull shape what information do you have to use and how close to the original does your model need to be?
