NAOS Group installs Dassault Systèmes’ 3Dexperience platform for superyacht development

Marine vehicles designer NAOS Group has deployed 3Dexperience CAD software from Dassault Systèmes, in order to virtually develop a superyacht.

Marine vehicles designer NAOS Group has deployed 3Dexperience CAD software from Dassault Systèmes, in order to virtually develop a superyacht.

With the 3Dexperience platform, NAOS will combine all design, engineering and manufacturing processes of the superyacht in a single digital setting.

The 3Dexperience platform is based on mainly two solutions, ‘Designed for Sea’ and ‘Optimised Production for Sea’.

"We have used various shipbuilding CAD systems in the past but wanted a new, more efficient approach that a business platform provides."

By using the platform, NAOS can capture and reuse existing data, as well as handle design changes.

The company can also start planning production early in the design process, and provide high-quality documentation for hull structure scantling and fabrication, as well as systems design and installation.

NAOS Group president Roberto Prever said: “We have used various shipbuilding CAD systems in the past to develop superyacht projects for shipyards, but wanted a new, more efficient approach that a business platform provides.

“‘Designed for Sea’ and ‘Optimised Production for Sea’ make it possible to seamlessly decide on design changes related to stability, basic design, advanced structural design, or safety. Now, we can deliver a project’s entire design and engineering much more efficiently.

“In addition, the integration of manufacturing documentation gives our shipyard clients significant advantages to optimise their production and assembly costs.”

3Dexperience also enables naval architecture and marine engineering services by linking them to necessary requirements, regulations and project planning.

Meanwhile, Dassault Systèmes noted that its ‘Designed for Sea’ solution has been selected by Bureau Veritas to speed up the process of ship structure modelling and calculations.
