ProSurf 3: Upgraded Hull Design And Fairing Program

Friday, June 08, 2001
New Wave Systems, Inc. (www.newavesys.com) announced the release of ProSurf 3, a major new version of its hull design and fairing program. After 15 years of development, ProSurf 3 has evolved into a general-purpose trimmed NURB surface modeling program. ProSurf 3 offers unique features, such as using edit points that lie on the NURB curves and surfaces, dynamic curvature feedback for fairing, fine tune shaping commands, dynamic geometry constraints, editing and shelling of polysurfaces, plate development and expansion, hydrostatics, stability and resistance calculations and a database of airfoil shapes. "Over the years, our boat and ship design program has evolved into one that can handle any 3-dimensional shape," says Stephen Hollister, President of New Wave Systems, Inc. "We wrote all of the code in ProSurf 3. It does not use any third party software or kernel and it contains unique capabilities that cannot easily be duplicated. We are also being very aggressive about lowering the price of ProSurf 3 to $795. No other surface modeling program provides the same capabilities at anywhere near that price. We also have a new ProBasic 3 program at $395 and a new ProChine 3 program at $195." Two of the greatest strengths of ProSurf 3 are its detailed surface shaping and fairing tools and its dynamic geometric constraints. After generating surfaces using sweeping, extruding, shelling, lofting, and other techniques, the designer can perform detailed shaping and fairing using fine tune move commands and dynamic curvature feedback information. Combined with the use of edit points that lie on the NURB surface, these commands provide unmatched, detailed shape control required to develop fair surfaces. The designer can also dynamically display any plane-surface or surface-surface intersection while changing the shape of the surface.
