ARL To Launch New Program

Saturday, March 03, 2001
ARL will be launching ShipConstructor2001 in March. ShipConstructor is an AutoCAD-based 3-D product-modeling system, providing shipbuilders with an easy-to-use, yet powerful 3-D software. ShipConstructor2001 provides lofting, structural modeling, nesting, outfitting, piping, and database system -- all in one. ShipConstructor is a scalable system that can be efficiently used for powerboats, tugboats, workboats, large ferries, container ships, and cruise ships. ShipConstructor has been successfully adopted by more than 100 shipyards and engineering companies worldwide. Customers report increased productivity of up to fifty percent not only in engineering, but also in production. Well before this new release, several companies have already committed to use the new 2001 version on upcoming projects. The all-new piping module integrates closely with all structural modules. It is the first AutoCAD based piping system to implement "Smart Pipes", which utilize a relational database to not only access the catalogs and specs, but also validate connections and freedoms of movement. For example, when trying to move a single or a group of pipes, all surrounding pipes are automatically checked for allowable movement criteria and the move is restricted as required. All pipes automatically adjust to the movement of the other pipes keeping connections intact. This feature reduces design and change times dramatically.
