Focus Marine will use the Autoship System design application to assist its naval architect and marine engineer team in handling a variety of marine vessel design projects as its main marine engineering platform.
“The Autoship System was chosen by our engineering group for several reasons - the main one being its integrated suite offers us a lean-engineering approach,” said Mihailo Maksimovic, technical director at Focus Marine.
“When we can output NC files from Production Manager based on a vessel model originally developed in the Autoship hull design program, then we are benefiting from the power of a true CAD/CAM system.”
“If there is a change to the vessel model, even when we have all the internal structural design completed, we go back into Autoship, widen the beam, for example, then go back into Autostructure and simply click on a button to regenerate the affected parts. That’s the power of this system.”
