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.

3D Production Model

This 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.

Expanded Plate

With 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.   

Assembly Drawings

Assembly 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.

Nest Drawings & NC Code

Nest 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 format.

Stiffener Plots

Stiffener 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.
