I'm wondering whether it's possible to insert a quad/plane textured with image? Also, image contains coordinate system which I would like to calibrate to Caeses units and then I would draw curves snapped on that plane over the image. I'd actually like to draw a ship hull from its lines drawing, and then loft or whatever to recover the full shape.

Hey Josip,


I've done something similar a couple of month ago.


Images can be visualized with the glpictureframe object (menu> Visualisation > Glpictureframe)


When you have visualized your linesplane you can start to create your sections with points and lines.

In this example I have used a bsplinesurface and fitted it to the linesplan.

Move the base position points to place the pictures.


You can create curves and create a lofted surface from these curves.


Here is another post which gives more inside about the picture frame.


If you have any further questions do not hesitate to ask.

Hello Mr. Wenzke, the video  "Adding a bulbous bow to ship without bulb" uses a curve generated from a image surface,  command Features/ HullDesign/isomapping is from latest  Caeses version? I don't see this in my GUI.
