Modeling Help

Im trying to recreate the tubes of this boat from scanned data. Could any one share how they would go about creating a new surface.

I’d offer to buy the design files, from the person or company that owns the design.

My method for mesh models to NURBS models

  • Look at the shape anddecide on how to arrange the individual surfaces of the mesh model
  • Section and contour the mesh model to obtain curves
  • Obtain points from each curve
  • Creating sets of edge curves for each surface
  • Create starting surfaces from the edge curve sets
  • Patch command using the starting surfaces to fit surfaces to the points
  • Extend surfaces and trim as needed

The mesh model in the first post is too coarse and rough to create a model suitable for most purpose.
