The Drawing Office designs models for new vessels and their appendages, and optimises designs provided. Our objective is to develop effective models for further research.
Based on the lines plan, which sets out a vessel’s the key measurements (length, width, draught), a hydrodynamic design is made or an existing design is modified. This is often done with the aid of a drawing program developed by MARIN.
To improve a hull shape, our CAD engineers use the RAPID program for calculation and analysis, and apply the results directly to model’s hull shape. Our CAD engineers draw the model appendages, such as the rudders and fins.
We have developed our own plug-in for the CAD program Rhinoceros. This plug-in enables us to carry out various geometric operations in just one program. These include the hull design, modification to a ship’s hull, generation of panels (which divide the hull shape into small components for further calculations), and to provide the right data for the milling machine. Because in the end, the drawing office supplies the design for the model to be made.
