ExpressMarine 4.1 Released – A fresh approach on parametric modeling

Prioritizing efficiency, ExpressMarine allows the use of parametric and non-parametric elements in the same model, thus minimizing the disadvantages of the fully parametric approach, where modelling time is wasted on thorough definitions of certain parameters which may never be used later.

For this new ExpressMarine release, below are some of the Enhancement/fixes compared to the previous versions.

Force Full Model Update

‘Force full model update’ no longer creates geometry in nodes not previously ‘Applied’ by user.

Update model

Objects in need of update marked in tree. This can also allow the user to update a specific block without updating the entire model.

Search Function

Keeping in mind our goal of increasing productivity, the search function allow the user to quickly find an item without having to search in the tree.

Reimagine Rapid Modeling of Ship Structures in Rhino

Live Webinar | April 2

  • Thu, Apr 2, 2020 7:00 AM ET – 8:00 AM ET
  • Thu, Apr 2, 2020 2:00 PM ET – 3:00 PM ET
  1. How to initialize an ExpressMarine model             
  2. How to create objects that are associative to 2D drawings (e.g., a General Arrangement)
  3. How to create repetitive structure through parametric and associative rules             
  4. How to create non-repetitive structure, such as stringers on the shell
  5. How to export to ShipConstructor 

In this one-hour live webinar, you will see how the ExpressMarine structural modeling plug-in for Rhino is used to rapidly create a 3D parametric model of the structure, with the ability to easily make changes that flow through the model. Beginning with a hull model, we will demonstrate how to create decks, bulkheads, floors, frames, stiffeners, cutouts, etc., with associativity and parametric rules. See instant updates of weight and center of gravity of modules and the entire ship, and export of the data to ShipWeight and a BOM. 

You’ll see how you can use your ShipConstructor stock material library while building the model, and then export a complete, attributed model to ShipConstructor, potentially saving hundreds of hours of modeling time. 

Attendees will be provided with information to download a free trial of the software and access to exclusive pricing offers.
