Hello cruzmayora,

many thanks for your reply!

Actually, I already suspected that one (or maybe the only) way to deal with non-symmetric hulls in DS would involve layers.
But since my hull shapes so far have been quite simple, such as that of the German railway ferry that I currently try to reconstruct, and as I only concentrated on the hull lines (i.e. absence of superstructures, which I know many DS artists are capable of creating), I have to confess that I so far haven’t made acquaintance with layers.

Maybe, would you be so kind to tell me how I would have to define a separate layer (i.e. which grid control points of the stern should I include) and how to procede from there?

Here are a few images of my current work. I hope the BBCode works and displays the links here.
