Marine Design Solutions

A next-generation ship design solution from concept, to design, to manufacturing output.

Ship Design Software

Shipbuilders need design and management solutions that can handle massive volumes of data while enabling the effective design of whole classes of ships in the next-generation digital enterprise environment. It is possible to produce better ship designs more quickly because to the advantages of an integrated design environment that includes steel structure and outfitting design as well as a tightly integrated analysis set of tools.

Next-generation ship design software can offer a concentrated environment for modelling the concept, detail design, and manufacturing output information of ships. Design your future ships using this programme. Your designers will be able to quickly search for, retrieve, and collaborate on the whole ship design process thanks to the flexibility given by the ability to organise your ship data in numerous views.

Marine Design Solutions is made up of powerful features that allow you to build a custom solution. Read more about these features below.

Ship Basic Structure Design

Based on the information provided from the Concept Design stage, quickly create an initial macro image of the ship. The idea of a structural system encourages early design stage analysis as well as the production of reports and drawings necessary for the Class societies’ approval. Plate and profile systems that are further divided into smaller subsystems with seams serve as the basic design model’s representation. Decks, longitudinal bulkheads, and transverse bulkheads should be quickly identified as components of the plate systems. The components of profile systems include pillars, stiffeners, and edge reinforcement. The fundamental design concept may be supplemented with common components, brackets, and cutouts. To rapidly model these structural systems, copy and replicate fundamental design objects.

The model of the fundamental design structure is topological and compact. These topologically related structures and the associated class drawings receive automatic and prompt design updates.

3D Ship General Arrangement

Ship General Arrangement

As part of the Concept design process, the Ship General Arrangement technique uses 3D models to swiftly and precisely generate a proposal for a new ship. The General Arrangement of a ship is turned into a 3D model, along with the associated 2D drawings.

Create a flexible product structure for the GA design process’ foundation, and define the concept grid model and deck-based breakdown. Each deck can be broken down by individual designers into room spaces with typical appliances, components, and lodging-related stuff. Each space’s surface area and net and gross volume are determined. Tabular data can be quickly and associatively constructed alongside Main GA drawings, Tank plans, and Door/Window plan drawings. The basic steel structure design can be guided by the 3D data produced as part of GA design, and it can also be used to develop marketing materials like high definition photographs and walkthroughs.

Ship Structure Detail Design

Depending on the outputs from the concept design stage, either directly model a thorough representation of the ship’s structure or transition the structural systems from a basic design model and then add the appropriate secondary structural elements. The quick insertion and change of brackets, standard parts, apertures, profile cutouts, clips and collars, chamfers, end cuts, corner cuts, edge cuts, and flanged plates is made possible by a parametric detail feature specification. Make structural pillars and cover steel surfaces with insulation. A rule-driven command that automatically detects where welds are required and specifies the weld details is used to generate welds.

The topologically connected detailed design model guarantees speedy propagation of design changes and has the capacity to effectively duplicate and mirror current structural design, enhancing designer output. Production planning and manufacturing outputs can be created using the data produced by detail design.
