ShipConstructor is an AutoCAD based software product line created for design, engineering and construction in the shipbuilding industry. ShipConstructor’s AutoCAD foundation provides a user environment that is a globally recognized CAD/CAM standard. This results in an existing labor pool of expertise, a common DWG format for sharing information with other applications, and a portfolio of complementary Autodesk products.

ShipConstructor’s use of COTS technologies such as AutoCAD and Microsoft SQL Server allows it to be integrated with other business processes and applications. This enables it to address the requirements of all clients and projects.  The Associative DWG capability of ShipConstructor’s Marine Information Model provides true Concurrent Engineering for the first time in shipbuilding CAD/CAM; all engineering disciplines can work within a single integrated environment with associativity that extends to the production drawing level.  These differentiators are combined in an industry specific product that incorporates shipbuilding standards, concepts and terminology.

Hull / Structure Products

Hull

Hull combines purpose-built shipbuilding specific surfacing technology and the simplicity of working inside of AutoCAD. This brings together the best of two worlds. It allows for easy and intuitive creation and manipulation of complex surface models while also allowing the freedom to use standard AutoCAD drafting techniques.

Hull provides powerful features such as surface-surface intersection, surface trimming, plate expansion, structural section definition, shell expansion, shell stringer definition, offset book printing, and pin jig drawing generation. The data designed in the external hull production model flows freely into the Structure product.

Structure

Structure offers rapid 3D production detailing of internal hull structure. It combines aspects of both associative and parametric 3D modeling but is tailored specifically to the design of ships and offshore structures. Accurate and intelligent 3D project models can be created very quickly utilizing a cross section of shipbuilding specific capability and native AutoCAD tools.

More >>

MarineDrafting

In a world of 3D design and manufacturing, many activities still need to be supported with 2D drawings during design and throughout the shipyard. Using shipyard standards, MarineDrafting allows the creation of 2D approval and workshop drawings directly from the 3D model. These drawings are created in AutoCAD DWG format and remain associatively linked to the 3D model as changes happen.

More >>

WeldManagement

WeldMangement is a production and management system for structural welds in ShipConstructor. This product provides the ability to fully customize weld symbols and standards. It also provides the ability to develop a weld schedule for each particular project. Once welds have been defined in the project (including automatic identification and weld path generation) configurable weld reports can be generated for any assembly, or for the entire project.

More >>

ManualNest and AutomaticNest

Nesting is tightly integrated into the central project database, providing features to nest by assembly, stock, material, surface treatment, port/starboard, like/mirror cut, and full remnant control. ManualNest and AutomaticNest provide standard tools to align parts and insert bridges.

More >>

ProfileNest

ProfileNest performs linear nesting of profiles onto available stock to optimize utilization and streamline production, including available and used stock control, heat number tracking, and full production reports.

More >>

NC-Pyros

NC-Pyros reliably creates NC-Code for any type of NC-cutting machine: oxy-fuel, plasma, laser, water-jet, or router. The integration with the product model automatically feeds back important information such as estimated cutting time, processing date, and operator name. This completes report data and simplifies any recalls. NC-Pyros-Bevel allows for adding variable angle cut and multi-torch weld preparation to NC-Pyros.

Outfitting Products

Pipe

Pipe is a complete production design package for pipe systems. Pipe modeling capability is spec-driven, based on a user-defined parametric catalog of pipe stocks and standards with logical connections between parts in the model. A powerful constraint based modeling system allows intuitive changes to existing piping systems. Pipe spools can be defined which are carried over into production for the creation of spool drawings and inclusion in the build strategy for pre-outfitting.

More >>

PipeLink

PipeLink allows the piping systems within a ShipConstructor project to be used within other business processes, and applications. This is accomplished through an export to the PCF format from within a ShipConstructor production drawing.

More >>

P&ID DesignValidation

P&ID DesignValidation allows for the checking and validation of the ShipConstructor 3D pipe model against 2D schematics generated in standalone P&ID software including AutoCAD P&ID. The validation is performed using neutral formats in order to allow clients more flexibility in the choice of P&ID software.

More >>

HVAC

HVAC (Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning) integrates with all of the other ShipConstructor modules and encourages collaboration between departments. HVAC can be based on a parametric catalog of stocks or can be driven by on-the-fly item creation depending on the client’s needs. The software employs the same constraint based modeling engine used in Pipe.

More >>

Electrical

Electrical is a 3D modeling and production system for wireways, cable trays, supports, cables and transits. It features an associative 3D model connecting allocated space to individual wireways, cable trays, supports and subsequent cables. Associative production documentation can be generated from the model including cable pull schedules and reports. The cables within the model are automatically routed within the ShipConstructor environment according to EMC ratings, minimum bend radius and more.

More >>

Equipment

Equipment provides the ability to insert any type of equipment item into a ShipConstructor model. The equipment items can be modeled in almost any modeling software, including directly in AutoCAD, and then incorporated into the ShipConstructor database. At this point, HVAC and Pipe connections are added as well as production specific attribute information. Once standards have been defined they are ready to be placed in the model.

More >>

Penetrations

Penetrations allow the creation of intelligent penetrations through structural members. The parametric spec-based penetration standards support features such as multi-pipe (and HVAC) penetrations and penetration accessory items.

More >>

PipeSupports

PipeSupports offers parametric design of supports based on shipyard standards. Supports are associated with pipe and pipe hangers as well as foundation structure to constrain and automatically adapt to design changes as the project progresses. The ability to generate support fabrication drawings linked to the model provides a smooth transition from engineering to production.

General Products

ProductHierarchy

ProductHierarchy is the hub within a project for production preparation. The build strategy is the primary product hierarchy, which defines the assembly sequence for the project. Every part produced in each of the various modules has a place in the build strategy. Planning and scheduling departments define the build strategy to optimize the logical sequence of assembly based on production capabilities together with need-by and procurement dates. All ShipConstructor production output functions are driven by the build strategy, allowing for near-automatic generation of production drawings.

More >>

Report

ShipConstructor provides a flexible, powerful tool for generating non-graphical production information. The Report module allows for the definition of complex production detail reports that can be generated from the central project database on demand. With advanced features such as grouping, sorting, summary fields and full control over the visual aspects of the report, this tool provides the means to extract the information required for the entire team. Any report can be exported to formats such as Microsoft Excel for further calculation and analysis.

More >>

WorkShare Products

WorkShare is a suite of tools & products to facilitate collaboration and the reuse of existing work. Capabilities include the ability to reuse targeted portions of existing 3D models, the ability to reuse entire blocks or systems along with the associated assembly information and production drawings, and the ability to implement distributed design of an entire project.

WorkShare Project

WorkShare Project allows work on a single ShipConstructor project model at multiple locations. This is accomplished by using technology to merge distributed design back into a single 3D project model.

More >>

WorkShare Design

WorkShare Design allows portions of a 3D project model, including assembly sequence, related production drawings and the underlying design intent to be captured and reused in another ShipConstructor project.
