Hull

OVERVIEW

  

Hull combines purpose-built shipbuilding specific surfacing technology and the simplicity of working inside of AutoCAD. This brings together the best of two worlds. It allows for easy and intuitive creation and manipulation of complex surface models while also allowing the freedom to use standard AutoCAD drafting techniques.
Hull provides powerful features such as surface-surface intersection, surface trimming, plate expansion, structural section definition, shell expansion, shell stringer definition, offset book printing, and pin jig drawing generation. The data designed in the external hull production model flows freely into the Structure product.

BENEFITS


RETAIN FLEXIBILITY
No limits are placed on the choice of initial design tools since ShipConstructor provides the ability to import data in various industry standard formats including IGES and DXF, as well as natively from AutoCAD, Maxsurf or Rhino surfaces.  Data created in Hull can seamlessly be utilized in Structure.

ENSURE PRODUCTION ACCURACY
ShipConstructor has tools that allow existing design surfaces to be analyzed, modified and faired in a production context. These tools ensure that only high quality design information makes its way to the shop floor.
