Before you begin
Having sketches on paper before creating 3D model is very important since reproducing the sketched curves in Bio Design requires time and patience. Bio Design is a simple but powerful tool for drawing Bezier curves. Have your 3 projections on paper ready, use ruler to know exact key positions of the connection points for your virtual model. You need to enter only one side of your model.
Bio Design is not a tool for creating sketches.
You don’t need to use Bio Design if you have your 3D model in other 3D modeling system, like AutoCAD. You can export your model as a DXF file with 3D surfaces and run hydrostatic calculations on it in Displacement. Bio Design was developed for our needs because in early 90s we did not have a better way to create a precise 3D model for hydrostatic calculations.
