The Hull Detailed Design Structure module distinguishes itself from other CAD/CAE/CAM systems by extremely fast 3D modeling and ease of use. The intuitive user interface guides the hull designer with maximum assistance while creating structural components such as decks, bulkheads, stiffeners, shell frames, girders, flanges, brackets, and other construction items.
Hull structures are stored topologically, meaning that relations between structural components and relations with the hull shape allow fast and easy modifications. The effects of modifications on a topological structure are automatically carried through to the related structural components allowing fast and easy re-use of information without doing rework.
Rule-based engineering is another strong feature that assists the engineer, for example, in picking the correct items and sizes automatically according to respective class rules.
