Visualisation tool for hull structure and outfitting
ShipExplorer Visualiser complement the CAD system by using the 3D model data for visualisation purposes.
Simple user interface and model manipulation
- Importing geometry for single nodes or branches of the structure, for arbitrary selected portions of the structure, both for the hull and outfitting part.
- Efficient view manipulation (zoom, rotation, translation) using the mouse, where the point of zoom or rotation can be easily selected.
- Predefined standard views, and the possibility to store an unlimited number of user defined views.
- Display of element non-graphical attributes, including attributes coming from the CAD model (material, mass, centre of gravity, etc.), together with attributes from PDM and ERP systems.
- A powerful product structure search tool.
- Loading outfitting for corresponding hull or vice versa.
Cutting planes / Interactive Dimensioning
To facilitate the exploration of hidden parts of the ship by cutting it with user defined planes and hiding the part of the model on one side of the plane.
- The number of cut planes is not limited, and each cut
plane can be defined by surface normal vector, by
coordinate axes, by frame or by distance from baseline.
- Dynamic distance measurement, with automatic
placement of measurement points on characteristic model points (vertexes, edges), with smart placement of
dimension lines in an optimal way concerning the
dimension readability and visibility.
Basic sketching tool
- Adds the possibility of a quick and efficient creation of simple sketches for the selected geometry, with the addition of standard 2D entities to the underlying model directly in Visualiser, to be used in situations where a more powerful tool for document generation, ShipExplorer Drafting, is not needed.
- Supports importing major CAD model data formats
- Support for other CAD model formats can be easily added
- Example of supported formats: dwg, dxf, dwf, dgn, sat
Multiple users can work together on the different parts of the same project using master-slave project capability.
Runs on following platforms (32bit and 64bit):
- Windows: 2000, XP, 7, 8, 10
- Linux: Ubuntu, Fedora, Arch Linux
- Oracle Solaris: SPARC, x86
