Orca3D for Rhinoceros
Orca3D for Rhinoceros is a powerful and efficient plugin for the design, editing and analysis of ships and boats in the Rhinoceros software. Using this plugin, designers can easily complete all the parameters of a boat or vessel from hull, deck and superstructure design to balance and stability analysis, speed forecasting, etc. degrees, cost estimates, etc. In addition, the plugin is easy to adapt and overlap with the Rhino Environment, so users do not need to learn new software and can easily design with the familiar Rhino environment. Plug or Mac to extract all design parameters such as block factor, prismatic factor, key stability and many other parameter formats supported by Microsoft Excel and Adobe Acrobat for users.
It can streamline your design workflow with a suite of powerful applications that run in the Rhino 3D environment. Conceptualize, model, and analyze, all without transferring files or learning a new program. By itself, Rhino is an extremely powerful design tool.
When you add these marine-specific tools, it becomes the most versatile and cost-effective marine design program available. Create and surface fair hulls, decks and superstructures, analyze hydrostatics and stability, predict speed versus horsepower, and track your design weight, center of gravity and costs, all even in a single environment.
Features of Orca3D for Rhinoceros
- Orca3D runs as a plug-in to the Rhino program, so you don’t need to learn other user interfaces and terminology. Is it an extremely powerful 3D modeling system that includes real naval architecture tools or a marine design program with amazing 3D modeling and rendering capabilities? Think of it this way, but the bottom line is that it’s easier to learn, more effective, and more fun!
- Orca3D adds the ability to Rhino to easily define a table of stations, butts, waterlines, cants, inclines, and diagonals, and instantly see curves on the surface(s). See the curves update in real time as you modify surfaces, or choose to update them manually, with just one click, after you’ve made a series of changes to your model.
- To design a meaningful body part, you must be able to compute intact hydrostatics, to ensure that you meet the basic displacement and LCB requirements, as well as less obvious goals but still important for mass coefficients, prismatic coefficients, initial stability, and many other parameters. With Orca3D, one click calculates and displays a full table of intact hydrostatic and stability information, with results output to the screen, as well as other optional formats such as Microsoft Excel® and Adobe Acrobat®.
- Orca3D uses surface modeling for hydrostatic calculations and can handle complex models with arbitrary shapes. There is no limit to the types of shapes that can be analyzed; monohulls, multihulls, submersibles, rigs, etc.
- Hull goes fast with Hull Assistants Hull design in Orca3D is done using NURBS surfaces (see the Rhino Help file for a full discussion of NURBS surfaces). Usually, the hardest step in shell design with NURBS is creating the initial 3D shape; After you have that, modifying and blurring the shape is very simple.
- Using the analysis library from HydroComp, Inc. For planing or shifting hulls, Orca3D can quickly predict effective horsepower versus speed for your design. Guidance is given on modifying various parameters of your design to improve performance.
