MarineDrafting

OVERVIEW

  

In a world of 3D design and manufacturing, many activities still need to be supported with 2D drawings during design and throughout the shipyard. Using shipyard standards, MarineDrafting allows the creation of 2D approval and workshop drawings directly from the 3D model. These drawings are created in AutoCAD DWG format and remain associatively linked to the 3D model as changes happen.

BENEFITS


REDUCE REWORK
The shorter and shorter project schedules associated with today’s demanding shipbuilding programs are causing more overlap between each phase of design and engineering. This overlap means that the 3D design continues to progress after approval or workshop drawings have been created. The 2D drawings generated with MarineDrafting remain linked to the model and can be updated throughout the life of a project. This can significantly reduce the amount of rework required when changes occur.

REDUCE EFFORT
The 2D drawings created using MarineDrafting are automatically generated from the 3D product model. The drawings are created from a combination of configurable shipyard standards, AutoCAD styles and templates, the 3D geometry within the model, and the relationships and attribute data from parts in the model.

LEVERAGE EXISTING SKILLS
The drawings created using MarineDrafting remain associatively linked to the model and contain a significant amount of industry specific information. However, these drawings can be modified and further detailed by a user using only AutoCAD capabilities, skills and knowledge. A significant number of the class approval drawings generated today are created and detailed by drafters using AutoCAD. MarineDrafting provides a significant number of benefits as part of ShipConstructor without requiring many new skills to be learned.
