3D Approach Improves Ship Production


3D Approach Improves Ship Production

Genoa Design International (St. John's, Canada) has completed the structural production work package for an aluminum-built Canadian Coast Guard Buoy-tending vessel. The ShipConstructor production software from Albacore Research was used to create a 3D model of the Coast Guard vessel. This modeling approach led to significant efficiencies for the vessel's builder - C&W Industrial Fabrication and Marine Equipment.

The ShipConstructor software database aided in the creation of efficient parts numbering system, whereby any part cut from aluminum plate could be traced to the nest drawings, and the mill certificate could be sited.

Since the vessel was built in panel assemblies, C&W maximized the use of its shop floor in conjunction with other projects.
C&W's project leader said, "We were pleased with the results of the 3D modeling process. Using ShipConstructor, Genoa delivered drawings for panel assemblies that fit together exactly to create the final hull assembly. The resultant precision of building a vessel from drawings and information based on a 3D model enabled us to reduce assembly time. There was virtually no rework and no experimental 'fit-up' time required."
