3D Ship & Siemens NX

We're Creative Engineers

We are driven by our passion for shipbuilding and dedicated to deliver creative design and engineering services. From concept studies to manufacturing data. Our knowledge and experience with practical shipbuilding combined with an advanced high-end 3D CAE system enables us to work efficiently and accurate and to find the best design and engineering solution for your ship.

Siemens NX provides a focused environment for modeling and manufacturing the structure of a ship, enabling users to conceptualize and model the surfaces and landing curves of the hull, decks and transverse and longitudinal bulkheads. It provides shipbuilding engineers with tools to easily create and detail the plates and profiles that make up the structure. It also enables development of the production planning and generation of the structural manufacturing data. The ship structure solution is comprised of three products: NX Ship Structure Basic Design, NX Ship Structure Detail Design and NX Ship Structure Manufacturing.

With Siemens NX

NX Ship Structure Basic Design 

Ship Structure Basic Design implements the concept of a structural system, which enables the user to quickly model and modify a structural macro view of the ship to support early design stage analysis, drawing generation and easy transition to detail design. The structural system concept enables the user to define decks, bulkheads and the hull as single topologically related objects that are subdivided into subsystems with independent material and scantlings. These subsystems are further subdivided by straking seams to define parts that can be manufactured.

NX Ship Structure Detail Design 

Ship Structure Detail Design provides all of the functionality necessary to define and modify the structural detail parts. It includes parametric detail feature definition for quick placement and modification of brackets, holes, profile cutouts, clips and collars, chamfers, end cuts, corner features, edge features and flanged plates.

NX Ship Structure Manufacturing 

Ship Structure Manufacturing provides functionality to create the data necessary for structural part fabrication. Manufacturing parts are created from the detail design parts and include unfolded plates geometry, profile inverse bending curves, profile sketches, excess material, marking lines, shrinkage and XML output.

NX Ship Drafting 

NX Ship Drafting provides functionality specifically for shipbuilders, such as a frame bar command, area centerline, drafting lines, symbols, weld symbols, annotation, inverse bending line and shipbuilding baseline dimension option.
