SSI 30th Anniversary
        • Design
        • The most significant opportunities to impact the cost of building and operating a ship are found in the design and engineering phase.

          Initial Design  |  Basic Design  |  Detailed Design

        • Build
        • Even a smaller shipbuilding project is immense in scope and scale. Manage the challenges that are unique to ship construction.

          Prepare  |  Fabricate  |  Assemble

        • Maintain
        • With the majority of a ship’s life taking place after it’s been built, it’s crucial to ensure that the organization has a clear picture of the vessel at all times.

        • Nexus
        • SSI Nexus is the place where users, creators, & implementers of SSI software get together. Here they discuss best practices & industry trends, tackle common challenges, gain access to the latest software, and provide input into the future of the products that bring them together.

        • MyLearning
        • SSI MyLearning is where SSI users can access detailed training exercises, materials, courses, and certifications. The self-directed training curriculum ensures that training happens on your schedule and when you need it most.

        • SSI Blogs
        • The SSI blog is your place to get insights into the intersection of shipbuilding and technology, how our industry is moving forward, and keep up with SSI news. It’s the only place to read the latest from Denis Morais and Darren Larkins, SSI’s co-CEOs.

At your company, you are well prepared for future shipbuilding challenges due to your exploration of ShipConstructor. You will exceed the high level of quality a vessel built your company is known for and build upon your reputation for on-time delivery. These achievements are made possible through the adoption of a 3D model that provides the benefits of early weights, CG, advanced visualization, and the capability to automatically generate classification and workshop drawings that capture your company’s specific requirements.

To ensure that you understand how ShipConstructor can enable your company to move into the future of 3D shipbuilding we have created a 3 part video demonstration for you.

The demonstrations below showcase how your company can:

  • Rapidly create a basic design
  • Add sufficient detail to the basic design to generate classification drawings
  • Generate 2D class approval drawings with a 3D model

Rapidly Creating a Structural Model

This demonstration will show you how to rapidly create a structure model of an entire ship – decks, longitudinal bulkheads then frames – using ShipConstructor’s key features and best-known practices. The parametric functionality, part relationships, and SSI’s understanding of Japanese shipbuilding practices all work together to ensure that this model can be used to:

  • Accurately estimate weight and center of gravity.
  • Produce an early stage BOM
  • Define the space.
  • Allow export into analysis software like FEA.

Adding Detail to the Basic Design

After the basic design structural model has been created or imported, we will now add in details. This will be enough detail to automatically create and generate 2D class approval drawings.

Generating Class Approval Drawings

Class approval drawings are often created independently of the ship model, however, ShipConstructor’s MarineDrafting tools let you create 2D views associated with the common 3D model, annotated with industry-standard, shipbuilding specific symbols.
