Best Fit Surface on a Point Cloud
What is the best way to create a surface using points created in multiple sketches? I am working on a boat hull. The shape is defined by a table of Offsets. These are points measure up from a base, and over from a center plane. Back in the BC days(Before Computers), these points were taken from a scale model created for the desired hull shape. Obviously the resolution in these tables are thus fairly corse. I'm translating a Table of Offsets from1936. Their units are feet- inches-eights. And a "+" or "-" sign to represent a smidgen in one direction or another. So I have 100+ points that now need best fit curvature applied to them. I have attempted to create vertical splines contained by 3d splines and use the FILLED SURFACE feature. When I attempt to use the intermediate vertical splines as guides, it doesn't cooperate. Ideas? Suggestions?
