Boat designing is more or less an art but still is incomplete without the proper knowledge of technology and architecture. There are certain peculiar points that always need to be there in the back of designer’s mind. If any of these peculiarities are missed out then certainly it will goof up the things at the show time. Then why not to delegate all these art and technology related concerns to someone whose output is a bulls-eye, whose computation is flawless, whose architecture designing is a brainchild of genius and accuracy is an integral entity of its persona. All these qualities can be clubbed together in nothing else except design software; and what if, when it comprises 3 dimensional qualities too. Yes, certainly we are talking about 3D boat design software. Let’s have a glimpse over its unmatchable versatility.
Earlier due to lack of expertise designers had to rely upon 2-dimensional software which were adequate up to certain extent but lacked visual appeal, actual image and sophistication. Many of the part designs and shapes are inbuilt in this 3D software. Like bow, bulkhead, chine, deck, gunwale, keels, keelson, rudder, sheer, transom, stem, strake and stern and many such integral parts are embedded in the 3D software with very little variations. All a designer needs to do is to pick and integrate these parts at the proper place. Along with designs it has flexibility of dimensions; for example at certain cross sectional point of longitude and athwart ship bulkheads if dimensions are not in synchronization, then it will automatically prompt the user. In this way scope of dimensional error gets reduced by a great degree. All the marine science related principles will be taken care by the software itself; for example if designer is making bottom of boat light then it will prompt for engineering error.
Moreover by virtue of 3D boat design software, designer can draw any type of floatable object. Each and every design is passed through multiple iterations. Visual appeal is so fine that no more complex menus are resorted upon for visualizing that 2D drawing in actual. Demo file can ease the usage of software for beginners. Software is so handy that one can easily rotate, move and scale the boat as per the requirement. All requisite holes and gaps can easily be introduced in the drawings as are actually there in the real boat. Some other aspects like weight and strength of each and every part can also be considered with the help of this software. Different bottoms, curves and acute steeps at the back can easily be drawn with the help of this software. Moreover the efficiency that can be attained with different permutations and combinations of these parts can easily be chalked out.
In this way we can mention endless benefits of 3D boat design software, which are almost unmatchable comparing to those handmade designs and human experience. But all these features are not that important as are flawlessness, time saving aspect, ease of use and 3D visualization.
