eShare – the ultimate information management tool for the marine and offshore industry

Link, visualize, and share ship design, engineering, planning, production, inspection, and operation information in a web-based platform.


Key benefits

  • Access all project data in one place – any data in any database can be linked, searched for, and visualized
  • Make decisions faster & more accurately – the right information is available, all the time, to all project participants
  • Boost efficiency of project progress monitoring by visualizing statuses based on several variables
  • Retain full control over sensitive information: No data relocation or cloud storage. Effective support available whenever needed. Independent solution means no reliance on single vendors
  • Solution developed specifically for marine industry needs. Independent solution means no reliance on single vendors

Watch our webinar to learn how eShare can unlock next-level efficiencies, accelerate the time-to-market, drive down costs, shorten lead-times, and reduce quality issues in design, manufacturing, and supply chains.

CADMATIC eShare is revolutionizing how shipyards, design companies, shipowners and other project participants think about and use design, production and operational ship information. eShare’s powerful information linking, visualization and sharing leads to faster and more accurate decision-making. 

eShare provides support for the flow of information on any project stage. It facilitates and supports production and installation and improves communication. The independent web-based portal can link, visualize and share any ship-related information via the 3D model.

Access all project data in one place

eShare seamlessly links design, engineering & planning data, procurement and production data as well as inspection, operational and maintenance data of a ship. All project data is accessible in one place via the 3D model hosted in the eShare web portal.

Speed up and enhance understanding

Having access to information is important, but the ability to visualize information provides additional benefits. In eShare, you can visualize any data available in the 3D model, external databases, linked management systems, or information that was added by users.

Bridge the information gap

eShare bridges the flow gap between information created in design applications and information produced during the production, installation, operation, and maintenance of a ship. Enhanced information transparency translates into greater project efficiency.

The vast amounts of information produced during all phases of a project life cycle can be used as building blocks of the vessel’s digital twin. The information evolves when the project status changes from a concept or basic design to detailed design and production, and asset management.

    • Complete control of engineering data and standardized way of accessing data from different systems
    • Categorization based on e.g. the stress calculation of pipelines
    • Access information directly and automatically in 3D interface without need to use other systems or check documents
  • Effective support for construction phase

    • Integration with feasibility data and constructability analysis combines data for:
      • Prefabrication analysis
      • Site warehouse management
      • Progress monitoring of construction and prefabrication process and stages
    • Use modern technology and align 3D digital data with existing environment in AR/VR/ MR HoloLens®

Digital twin platform eShare reduces production paper prints

Scheepswerf Slob in the Netherlands implemented the CADMATIC eShare digital twin platform to reduce the number of printed technical production drawings.


"eShare is an excellent platform to easily realize communications and collect feedback among shipyards, design offices and design owners. It provides interfaces to other management systems as well. We look forward to seeing how this tool can add value,"

Shanghai Merchant Ship Design and Research Institute

Data-driven shipbuilding

Data quality, consistency, and interconnectivity, as well as the maximized automation of data handling throughout the entire ship design and shipbuilding process are key factors in unlocking greater efficiency, increasing productivity and boosting profitability. In data-driven shipbuilding, digital data streams are consistent, reliable, and reusable across disciplines, project phases and ship series
