|NUPAS-CADMATIC 3D Success Story|
NCG uses Open CASCADE Technology to develop its NUPAS-CADMATIC 3D ship design software.
NUPAS-CADMATIC's multi-disciplinary 3D design and engineering applications are highly integrated, ensuring consistent and error-free models for all ship design and production phases.
NCG has been using Open CASCADE Technology since 2006 for its Nupas-Cadmatic software. Initially it was used for importing ship hull shapes from external sources like IGES files. Standard OCCT import capabilities were extended with the OPEN CASCADE ACIS SAT Import/Export component.
Later an application was built on top of Open CASCADE Technology to manage the imported shapes.
Open CASCADE Technology is also used for
and for creation of:
- visualization and calculations like plane-surface intersections on imported shapes;
OPEN CASCADE has also been successfully providing various services to NCG since 2006 including E-learning and A-la Carte support.
- section drawings *
- complex solids
- holes, cutouts and end-cuts to the solids

|(*) Using Open CASCADE Technology surface-surface intersection algorithms|
|"Our experience with OCC support is that they oﬀer swiŌ and accurate solutions to our requests. Their experience is a valuable source of information for our developers.|
It is safe to say that using Open CASCADE Technology and its support contributed significantly to the fast pace at which NCG is able to develop NUPAS‐CADMATIC Hull."
