Classification drawings have traditionally been developed in 2D software with separate applications used for the development of a 3D design and engineering model. This results in duplicate effort, rework, and error.
However, now it is possible to generate 2D drawings directly from the 3D model. The shipbuilders making use of this solution are able to maintain their 2D processes where necessary but simultaneously take advantage of all the benefits of a 3D model.
Access the paper below to get a detailed insight into how this is possible for shipbuilders.
