Default 23'CC 3D Model

Hey guys, I just got some new 3d modeling software and so I am playing with it trying to learn it and of course one of the first things I made an attempt at was a boat. Let me start off by saying that I am not claiming to be a naval architect or anything of the sort. This boat is drawn with my eyeballs only. I didn't perform any hydrostatics or any other mathematical calculations. If this boat were built I can almost guarantee that it wouldn't run right. The more I get into it the more I can see where and how the hull would need to change if I were actually going to attempt to build it. With all of that said, I still thought it was cool and wanted to share it.

She has some flair!

It would be cool to get some opinions from one's who may "know" how to draw a boat.

Yes that would be cool. I will continue to add screen shots as I progress with it. I probably should have put it in the pictures forum rather than the boating forum.

She looks too much like a spoon from the overhead. Also when you look down the side of her she shouldn't flare out like she does at the breakshear. Sorry but it looks like a cartoon of a Carolina boat. There is something funky going on in the bow at the chine .... It needs to be tilted out more up there. Pinch in the chines up forward so she is a little sharper. Keep designing and have fun with it. Pretty good job so far.

The upper and lower sheers need to be changed. The lower runs uphill to much and the upper sheer doesn't run up enough.

What the profile shows is that the space between the upper and lower sheers become narrower as they move towards the bow, and it should increase.

The shape as drawn would be almost impossible to build in plywood. To extreme to plank.

Chine is to straight and to level, and she is way to full forward, the bottom would also be almost impossible to plank.

Even in 4 mm ply you couldn't get her to plank.

These computer programs can draw anything, but, they can't put one plank on a hull. And they will let you draw stuff that can't be planked.

Keep playing and having fun. I have seen far worse from people that put themselves out there as designers, and charge good money for it, but couldn't build a old wooden fishbox.

Find someone with a 3d printer and have them print it for you would look cool on a desk.

I've never heard of Maya. I learned on AutoCad in the early 2000's, then a little bit of Solid Works. This particular program is Solid Edge made by Siemens.

Thread makes me a little sad due to Hugh's previous post.

Great new design, agree on getting a 3D printer to do tests.

I agree, I would love to be able to hear his opinion on this one verses the first one.
