    I'm a newbie, and may i have an offline question, sorry if it could make inconvenience.

    Some of my Partners suggesting Intergraph Softwares to use in Shipbuilding Industry. But i didnt saw it in the list above. So, any one of you ever used Intergraph Softwares and how did you applied it to the project's works ? Thanks again !

    Welcome to the forum.

    Hexagon Geospatial is the division of Hexagon AB that currently owns Intergraph products and other than a failed vector based drawing program (which I know nothing about), I don't see any yacht or ship design design packages from Hexagon Geospatial. Do you have a specific package you can point too?

    Thanks PAR,

    It is said that Shell Peart GTL in Qatar used Intergraph SmartPlant for The central engineering solution, built on Intergraph’s SmartPlant® Instrumentation and hosted by Intergraph, helped enforce project standards and best practices among multiple project contractors.

    I think Intergraph is much better in Offshore Engineering, even they have co-operate with OMT for some Canadian Projects

    Anyway thanks again. But what issue are you talking about a failed vector based drawing program

    Hi everyone and to all experts,

    Can I ask if the AVEVA Marine is good for boatbuilding applications, let say for example with the FRP materials or is it only good for large scale shipbuilding industry with steel or aluminum materials?

    Thanks in advance and highly appreciated for all your inputs.

    Cheers!!

    What software(s) is recommended/best for someone planning on designing and producing "small" ships (under 25m/80ft), such as workboats and fish farming cats? From concept to production, where the whole process is covered. Hull, structure, basic outfitting, calculations and all the necessary drawings.

    I know Rhino + Orca3D is good for hull and concept design, but is it adequate for structure modelling of ships in this size category?

    In my opinion there is no better or worse software but the program that best suits your needs, your budget and the expertise of your technicians.
    Here everyone will tell you that the program he uses is the best.
    The best thing you could do, imo, is to ask developers of specialized software, describing in detail what you have and what you need.

    Why has nobody mentioned PIAS or Fairway? Both from the company SARC in the Netherlands.

    http://www.sarc.nl/

    Fairway is for the hull form design and PIAS is for the naval architectural calculations.
