    It would be interesting to have more information on how transformations are performed. For example, is it possible to change the position of the center of buoyancy and the program setting hull forms to get it?

    I suspect you can do this kind of thing in Think 3 as well. Maybe Rhino if you set up the surfaces correctly, and possibly Maxsurf. Referring to 'pulling' surfaces around tangentally at the edges ie keeping tangent at one or more edges.

    Alexanov, now I understand, but that's the same thing can be done with any modeling program. I do not want to bother but I thought you wanted to show us something new.

    Very often I work with lines which are ready for production. Sometimes it is necessary to do some little changes and keep surface faired at same time. This transformation is not destroying fairness of my surface. Quite quickly I can make several versions of the hull for CFD testing, and finally, get right variant with surface ready for production.

    I fully understand your explanations but honestly, Alexanov, I wonder why your method is different from other methods, its differences and advantages.
