Hull Basic Design

3D modeling of the entire hull structure starting from hull surface import up to a complete project. Alongside 3D modelling, General Arrangements and other drawings can be generated and information for class approval prepared.

Hull Structure Basic Design offers topology that supports and eases the designer’s work throughout the entire design process. The Hull Shape Import Manager module makes it possible to import surface-based hull shape models directly into CADMATIC, based on different independent file formats.

The flexibility of design and fast modification are very important parts of Hull Structure Basic Design. For modeling work, it is possible to define project parameters and grids. When modeling a construction, the user can create dependencies with these variables that can be modified at any time.

Hull Structure also offers a specific and dedicated 2D drafting functionality to create and maintain general drawings and plans.

Jan Broos, Senior Sales Manager at CADMATIC, shows and explains how to create a block of a tanker from scratch using CADMATIC Hull Software.

High-level topology - HilTop

The HiLTop module houses functions that add a new dimension to topology, taking the concept to a higher level and successfully bringing great flexibility to structural ship design. The user can set up special dependencies throughout the ship that can be controlled and maintained from a single location. This allows the user to make massive changes to the ship without spending countless hours on it.

High-level topology is convenient especially in the basic design phase of a project because it allows gaining full control over the basic structural layout of the ship. Changing the basic 3D model used for creating class and arrangement drawings has never been so easy.
