That’s a real shame and one that could probably be fixed with a check box that turns off the automatic fairing and some programing to draw the meshes through the input curves as can be done with AutoCAD and Rhino.

I have often had to prepare stability data for existing vessel that are not actually fair. The Coast Guard doesn’t care if the lines are fair, they want to be sure they accurately reflect the existing vessel. The errors inherent in scanning and tracing an image would be unacceptable to them and the labor would be prohibitive.
