It's not so easy to make video from CAD system screen. Some small details may be not possible to see on small  screen. I recommend to watch it in full screen mode.   

Shape Maker user interface.

Contain short video description of main interface issues. Show most important toolbars and fields standard locations. But during your works you can find yourself and save best place for most usable tools in Shape maker.

Shape Maker manual surface definition.

This video show all different ways of manual surface patches definition. Additionally you can see how to fix topological links between lines to make surface patch.

Shape Maker trimming surface.

This video show how to trim surfaces. Only surface boundaries, lines on surface or surface - surface intersection lines can be used for trimming. Lines forming trimming contour must have topological connection to each other and belongs to same surface. Intersection of trimming contours is not allowed.

Boundary lines properties.

This video briefly show how we can form surface's boundary lines by control polygon points modification.

End Points changes example.

This video show how boundary lines and connected surfaces react for changes of position of end point. Different modification can be used to approach required shape changes.

Curve shaping example.

This video show how to manipulate with control points to change shape ot the boundary curves. All elements like points, lines, and surface will be updated after finsiing of current edit session.

Basic information about topological elements.

This video show basic topological elements in Shape Maker and general ideas how to use it.

Prototype hull shape adjustment to new design. 

If you use Shape Maker at initial stage of design, you can do such transformations very often. It helps you to utilize your previous knowledge and user it fro design in your future projects. Using hull shape transformations in Shape Maker can save a lot of time at initial stages of project.
