NAPA Steel Initial Online Training
Dive into the World of NAPA Steel, online!
3D structural model, ship & blocks weight calculation, FE auto meshing, direct interface to almost all class structural design software, easy class drawings? Does this make your plates buckle? Join the course and find out more!
The initial training course is intended for people with none or very little NAPA Steel modelling knowledge. After the course, the participants have basic understanding about NAPA as a structural modelling and drawing generator program. The participants can create their own 3D structural model from scratch and they can create output in the form of numeric results and structural class drawings from the model.
Schedule and contents
First two days (Monday-Tuesday, 21 – 22 August, 2023)
The first part of the course focuses on geometry modeling of the structures with NAPA. The participants learn about NAPA geometry modelling tools and how to create the 3D structural model.
- Day 1: Introduction to NAPA and geometry modelling
- Day 2: Modelling of structure
Last two days (Thursday-Friday, 24 – 25 August, 2023)
This second part focuses on the finishing details of the structural modelling (seams, plate details and cutouts) and producing the output based on the 3D structural model, weight calculation, 2D structural class drawings and FE meshing.
- Day 3: Modelling of structural details
- Day 4: Rule interfaces, FE meshing and class drawings
NAPA, NAPA Designer, NAPA Drafting, Text / Macro / Table Editors, Calculator and Output tools are also covered during the course together with the other topics.
Each training day consists of 2 sessions, one in the morning and another in the afternoon, 2.5h each.
