Fastship is a Windows-based ship hull, appendage and superstructure design program,
using NURBS surface mathematics for preliminary modeling through final fairing. The
designer "sculpts" the surfaces interactively, watching the hull change shape in real time.
Complete intact upright hydrostatics are computed, and hulls may be transformed parametrically,
by specifying values such as overall dimensions, displacement, LCB and prismatic,
block, and midship section coefficients. Fastship is used world-wide for commercial
and naval ship design, as well as power and sailing yacht design, and is the only
hull design program that combines real-time surface manipulation and parametric design capabilities.
NavCad is a naval architect's tool offering an integrated platform to predict resistance and power,
and to determine optimum propeller parameters. All aspects of a ship's performance can be evaluated for virtually
every type of displacement hull, semi-displacement, planing craft or river barge train, catamaran and auxiliary-powered
sailboat. EasyProp is a propeller selection and analysis software developed especially for engine and propeller
suppliers, as well as the designers and builders of workboats and pleasure craft. PropCad is a parametric design/drafting
tool for the automatic preparation of detailed and dimensioned propeller drawings.
GHS is a comprehensive, full featured program addressing virtually every aspect of form, flotation, stability,
and longitudinal strength applying to surface and submarine vehicles of all types.
Other products are: BHS (Basic Hydrostatics), a medium priced version of GHS answering
the needs of many naval architects, BHS/Yacht, a low priced version that applies to
constant displacement vessels, GLM (General Load Monitor), a shipboard version and GHS/Salvage, a GHS
configuration for use in salvage operations.
ShipCam, Cad-Link & NC Pyros together with your choice of CAD program
cover all aspects of shipbuilding from the table of offsets through all
stages of fairing and lofting to the NC code for burning. Any type of hull
can be faired to create a 3-D surface model for lofting all part information,
including frames, stringers and decks. Cutouts are inserted automatically into
the frames. Surfaces can be expanded to flat plate with all markings and forming templates.
CAD-Link for AutoCad users generates 2D drawings from 3D planar parts (e.g. frames,
longitudinal bulkheads, brakets) for easy management and detailing of drawings.
NC-Pyros Pro converts any CAD drawing to reliable NC-Code.
Maestro is a structural design tool which combines finite element analysis, failure
mode evaluation and multi-objective structural optimization. Rapid modeling of structure
and realistic ship loads enable full ship structural analysis to be an integral aspect of
the design process for ships, advanced and high performance vehicles, offshore structures
and submarines. Maestro produces an optimum design based on any designer-specified
measure of merit such as weight, cost, vertical center of gravity, or any combination of these.
Maestro can be used effectively for bth design and structural analysis. Detailed stress analysis is available
for details such as corrugated plating, openings and brackets, with automatic fine
mesh modeling of any portion of the structure.
