NAPA Designer - a new revolutionary geometry modelling tool
NAPA is launching an interactive, easy to use application for geometry modelling of ship structures and compartments as well as statutory compliance.
NAPA Designer is an interactive state of the art geometry modelling tool for Naval Architecture and NAPA’s 3D structure design application NAPA Steel. It brings a completely new way of making real interactive ship design from concept level naval architecture up to structural plan approval and engineering. NAPA Designer offers an intuitive 3D modelling interface, requiring little training for a vessel designer to adapt to from a conventional 2D approach.
NAPA Designer was developed in close co-operation and valuable input from over 200 NAPA customers in 22 countries. Tekes, the Finnish Funding Agency for Innovation, and Idean, a global design firm specializing in superior User eXperiences played an important role in research and development work. Combining extensive, systematic R&D with NAPA’s 25 years’ experience in ship design software development we can now deliver a best-in-class solution, allowing design teams to meet the challenges of the future with confidence. NAPA Designer will deliver a significantly improved design platform for new and existing NAPA users alike and allow them to meet ship modelling requirements without additional time investment.
Examples of powerful NAPA Designer usage:
NAPA Designer for Structure Design: NAPA Designer & NAPA Steel & interface_to_rules for CSR BC&OT.
Together with the NAPA’s structure design application NAPA Steel and the extensive collection of class society rule interfaces it forms an effective packages for plan approval of many special ships and especially for CSR BC&OT ships. Read more in press release.
