The Workshop construction detailing module provides a range of graphical tools, and an integrated database, to let you parametrically create hull plates, transverse frames, decks and longitudinal structure for all types of Maxsurf designs. It is ideal for early stage definition of structural parts.
The Workshop construction module is used to define the location of parts on the vessel, generate part geometry and build a database of parts which can be passed to other CAD systems like AutoCAD, Rhino or ShipConstructor for further detailing. The parts can also be sent directly to NC cutting systems. Workshop provides you with a range of interactive graphical tools, each of which can be used to parametrically define parts directly from the Maxsurf NURB surface model.
All functions within Workshop are performed using a graphical multi-window environment consistent with all other Maxsurf modules. All data is displayed simultaneously in graphical and tabular form and is automatically updated as changes are made and as part shapes are calculated. Part creation is remarkably simple as parts are defined by clicking on contours on the hull surface and providing part attributes such as material, cutouts and sizes.
