Having seen some of the 3D models generated by Solosails, I wanted to try out some of the software they were using to generate an accurate 3D model of a punt of some local significance.

Having created pointcloud representing the shape of the boat, a series of lines are generated, just like the lines drawn on paper in ye olde days. These lines enable us to loft a 3D surface matching the shape of the structure of the boat. I chose to represent the boat skin as a carvel construction for ease of modelling. The clinker structure should be imagined.
