NCG - NUPAS-CADMATIC 3D
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:
- visualization and calculations like plane-surface intersections on imported shapes;
and for creation of:
- section drawings *
- complex solids
- holes, cutouts and end-cuts to the solids
(*) Using Open CASCADE Technology surface-surface intersection algorithms.
