Editing a maxsurf model (geometry)

Hi 

For modeling purpose , I always use Rhinoceros. I built this model in Rhino and exported to Maxsurf. Usually that always works. I check the model by checking the area of the model and also check the model in Maxsurf Stability in Body plan section (Show single hull section in Body plan). In both of the cases I saw the following error 

As you can see the error can be clearly seen. How do I correct the error inside maxsurf? I tried different ways of exporting the model from Maxsurf but the error is persistent.

  • Hi You must ensure that the surfaces are correctly trimmed or bonded - really it is not recommended to model in Rhino and then import into MAXSURF - you are creating a lot of extra work for yourself!

    For correct hydrostatics, you must ensure that any cross-section through the model results in closed, non-intersecting and non-self-intersecting contours. this is described in some detail in the manual.
