I am still fairly raw at surface modelling, but have significant experience in ship and boat hulls, in support of my Naval Architecture practice. I have started preparing hull shapes in third party hull software (DELFTship) and then bringing the shape into SW as an IGES file, for onwards development in the SW environment.
A bit of a long shot, but is this any use?

Thanks for your inquiry, but I am sorry to say that I need someone that would be considered an expert at surfacing. I have a model that was created in something other than SOLIDWORKS and need it converted to a surface model. I don't have access to the original files and there are some issues with the model that I have and they need to be addressed before it can be converted to a surface model. Once the surface model is created, I need the surface to mimic "chicken wire". The final model will be used for 3D printing.
I'm sure I could help you out and love a good challenge.
I work with Solidworks as well as Delcam PowerShape which is really a good surfacing package.
I regularly convert surface models to solids and can work back and forth as needed.
Also I own a 3D printer so am familiar with the process.
Let me know if you have any questions.
I have to verify the process with my company before I proceed with this. Please stand-by.
I think my skill on solidworks' surface can beat up your challenge
I'm an expert user of solidworks surface,
it can be proven by validate my certificate ID :C-DZWZ7FTRW3 on SOLIDWORKS® Certification Center
Instead of normal surface feature, I also have been using Power Surfacing to help me modeled very complex surface
Otherwise, you can check my 3d models on the websites below:
