Thank you for the replies earlier. Since the last posts I’ve spent a few hours closely examining the rapid hull modelling method and have redrawn the control curves, I’m sure there not perfect but its a start nevertheless.
I’m planning in making an exact model of the hull from the lines plans that are embedded in the file. I will thicken the hull to 3.0mm and have her printed in 4-5 sections then bonded together to be built into an RC model. I want the hull to be an exact copy of the original trawler.
one of the features that must be re-created exactly is the flat side of the vessel with the leading edge contour. I’ve attempted this by creating a curve that starts from the keel towards the bilge, round the bilge up onto the side and then leads upwards and forward towards the bow top rail, i’m not sure if this has been done correctly.
I’ve also tried to use only 7-8 control points where possible, trying to keep that number the same in each curve. I may need more practice at this, but for someone thats only started using Rhino 4 days ago I’m fairly pleased with the progress so far, just need some guidance.
I’ve attached the latest version for someone to have a look at.
