Class Info

Week-long intensive introduction to traditional design methods in which students hand draw a lines plan of a N. G.

Covers methods used to develop hull shape analysis data from lines plans. Provides students with instruction in safe hand tool use and how to transfer their lines to 3D in the form of their model. Limited to 15.
