Getting started with the SSI Desktop App

In this webinar, learn about why we created this new utility, and how it will help your organization expedite Support Requests and get the most out of SSI Products.

The SSI Desktop application is a standalone utility, available under SSI Nexus Downloads, that allows a ShipConstructor user, engineering team manager or system administrator to:

  • Quickly scan and understand what SSI products and versions are installed on a workstation
  • Quickly incorporate this information to create and submit an SSI Support Request
  • Quickly access existing support requests and SSI resources

Why use the SSI Desktop App?

  • End users do not need access to SSI Support online to get the support request process started
  • End users can create support requests and direct them to their managers with all the necessary information already filled in
  • Support Requests are then created and submitted much faster
  • Technical investigations begin sooner, leading to resolutions provided in a more timely manner

Prepare yourself with this brief review of the SSI Desktop App.

Tips on WorkShare Transfer / Catalog Compare / Graphic Preview

One of the greatest challenges in shipbuilding today is managing changes across a series of hulls. When collaboration across and between organizations is involved, the challenge of managing those changes is compounded, even when working on a single hull.

With WorkShare Transfer, you can save time by selecting only the items you need and transferring them directly between related projects, allowing you to re-use the exact work required on-the-fly.

In this webinar, learn the ins and outs of how to use WorkShare Transfer effectively.

Getting Started with ShipExplorer

With hundreds of thousands of parts in a single CAD model, a way to quickly visualize what has changed gives you the power to focus on the task at hand. ShipExplorer allows any stakeholder, CAD designer, or non-CAD/CAM user to quickly visualize and share design changes, inspect models, and communicate necessary revisions to whoever needs the information.

ShipExplorer makes it easy to:

  • Use the switchback feature to connect to and open the related model drawing within ShipConstructor.
  • Load and compare revisions between model drawings.
  • Load the product hierarchies and create sets from the hierarchies for easy visual navigation.
  • Use the embedded Search tool to find specific parts.
  • Review drawings, compare design changes, and communicate complex data models across local and wide area networks.
  • Quickly isolate selected objects and understand their orientation with the click of a button.

In this webinar, learn the essentials regarding installation of ShipExplorer and Navisworks, configuring and using the ShipExplorer Launcher, and understand the key visualization tools provided by ShipExplorer.

Prepare yourself with this brief review of the SSI 2020 R1.1 ShipExplorer enhancements.
