Romanian shipyard in Damen Group benefits from user-friendly 3D modeling to enrich detail design models before extracting production information. CADMATIC eBrowser used as review/coordination tool by shipyard staff.
- Need to efficiently and effectively enrich detail 3D ship models before extracting production information.
- High-level topology saves time and reduces errors by automatically updating related information when changes are made to the 3D model.
"Compared to our previous software, it is much easier to do 3D modelling with CADMATIC. When you change something in the model, all other related parts change as well” – Alina Conda, Head of Hull Production Support Office
Damen acquired the Mangalia shipyard in 2018. Prior to this, the shipyard had been under Korean ownership and had used a different design software system for over 20 years. After the Damen acquisition, a switch was made to CADMATIC.
George Arnautu, Head of Engineering Department at Damen Shipyards Mangalia, says change is always difficult, but that it was a relatively easy transition to CADMATIC.
George’s colleague, Alina Conda, is the Head of the Hull Production Support Office at the shipyard. She remembers that during the transition to CADMATIC they were immediately impressed with the user friendliness of CADMATIC.
She gives some further examples of how CADMATIC has eased part modelling.
George Arnautu and Alina Conda have been impressed with how user friendly CADMATIC's modeling is.
CADMATIC eBrowser is a popular tool at shipyards where CADMATIC software is in use. Damen Shipyards Mangalia is no exception and George indicates that it is used daily by their foremen and production engineers.
eBrowser comes in handy when outfitting job cards are created. The shipyard’s staff use eBrowser to search for and quickly find model objects related to the job cards.
Having a direct link with the CADMATIC support team is something that George and Alina appreciate. They indicate that the collaboration with the support team is going well and that tickets left with the support team are handled efficiently.
