Starting this topic to explore the FreeCAD program and discuss techniques to be used. Being relatively new to the 3D CAD scene, the approaches will be relatively simple and sometimes wrong and can be improved. The project used as an example is a hull model of the New England fishing schooner Adventure and supporting information from http://schooner-adventure.org/about-us/ and details from Howard Chapelle's "The American Fishing Schooner". At some point photographs of the real schooner will resolve details. The objectives of the project are to understand some techniques for getting the 3D hull built, to get as realistic rendering as possible, and explore the opportunities for 3D printing with various options. I have been inspired by some amazing work in other topics in this forum "CAD and 3D Modelling/Drafting Plans with Software". Attached is a current rendering with many unresolved issues. I plan to go back and show how this was assembled and then move forward on the issues. Hoping that this will be of interest and that others will contribute.
I have been part of a tug/barge project over the past year. This project has involved designing everything using Fusion360. I am now back to regular physical modelling but started a new private project. This involves a motor yacht from 1930, I have the plans so it will be a fairly easy work to create a 3d model. But I won't stop there, my intention is to create frames and parts for building her as a RC yacht. Here is a picture of her as on plan.
