Primary services include production
drafting and detail design using ShipConstructor 3D production software combined with traditional computer assisted
drafting/modeling suites. Production drawing deliverables are generated
in the form of isometric or orthographic assembly drawings, stiffener
plots, nest drawings and computerized
numerical code for steel cutting beds. Additional services include
shipbuilding support such as: weights and centers, steel plate utilization, like/mirror steel burning, etc.
structural 3D model is drafted using ShipConstructor and includes plates,
stiffeners, structural pipe, brackets, closures and penetrations.
The project database connected to the model controls all part information
from which assembly drawings, nest drawings, NC Code, stiffener plots and
custom part reports are generated.
the use of CAD/CAM software, including ShipConstructor's ShipCAM, single
or double curved shell plate is accurately developed and expanded with
frame and reference line markings. Ship lines or offsets can be used
to develop and fair shell surfaces to specified tolerances. Geometric
shapes such as cylinders and cones are expanded with tangent lines and
rolling information directly marked on the plate.
drawings allow for the sequential build-up of parts, sub-assemblies,
panels, modules and hull blocks. Drawings can be displayed in
Isometric or Orthographic format. Weld information and details,
bills of materials, part locations, key check dimensions and weights and
centers are included.
Drawings & NC Code
drawings are generated from the ShipConstructor database along with a bill
of materials. Plate utilization, part weights, bevel information and
bridges as well as project wide drop plate usage is included. NC
code is generated for specific cutting beds and delivered in electronic
cut information can be generated as drawings or in a table format with
end-cut details supplied. Stiffener drawings are grouped by like stocks
and end-cuts to reduce drawing numbers.
