The release of ShipConstructor2005 will include smart Bills of Materials (BOM), the anticipated appearance of the new Hull module as well as new pricing options.
ShipConstructor was independently selected for the National Shipbuilding Research Program (NSRP) program based on its core functionality as an affordable 3D product modeling software that integrates seamlessly with AutoCAD. The NSRP is standardizing the use of ShipConstructor as a common design package through active participation in the development of the software’s specifications to meet the needs of both the first and second-tier shipyards.
Albacore Research Ltd. (ARL) and Australia’s Formation Design Systems (FDS) have announced that FDS has become an official dealer of ShipConstructor, ARL’s 3D Product Modeling tool for ships and offshore structures of all sizes and complexities. Mr. Rolf G. Oetter, President of ARL, and Mr. Philip Christensen, Managing Director of FDS, say that this decision developed as a result of an already-established successful business relationship between the two companies.
