    I had lines plan in Autocad. I have created 3D from those (Attached). When I imported in Maxsurf, Why it is rotated?

    Before exporting the file in AutoCAD you must correctly place the axes and the coordinate origin of the model.

    A very important thing to remember in Naval Architecture is for most programs X is forward, Y is Starboard, and Z is down.

    Some times when I import IGES files from Maxurf coordinate system was also wrong.
