Good Tutorial of Rhino to build a model hull

Hi everyone

Is there a quick tutorial to use Rhino to build a model ship hull, all I need is to measure the size of 1/350 model hull, and use the data to contrsuct a plank-strip model boat hull in rhino.

There are plenty of online tutorial, but they are complex and not very relevant to the tiny function of mine. From my rough data, can I just draw plank lit on paper, and create shearline and smooth out a hull shape. (I may use the 3D model later to create plank plan for lazer cut). But I just don't have too much time go through the entire 3D tutorial world.

Well, sorry... but every CAD package takes time to master, even for simple stuff. And designing a boat hull is not a simple" task... no matter which program you use.

A couple of links: The first is a basic Rhino hull tutorial. If you leaf through it it will show you what is involved. The second link is a CAD hull design forum. .

There are probably Rhino3D user groups and training facilities in the Toronto.area.
