Marine Vessel Analysis and Design
MAXSURF provides naval architects with software tools for all phases of the vessel design and analysis process. By using a common 3D surface model, design files can be optimized to accurately flow through concept, initial, and detailed design stages. With MAXSURF, users can confidently model hull forms; assess stability and strength; predict performance; and carry out initial structural definition and analysis.
All MAXSURF modules share a consistent graphical interface—which reduces training time, increases ease of use, and allows designers to visualize complex configurations. MAXSURF is based on industry standards, including trimmed NURB surface modeling, DXF, and IGES data exchange. It also exhibits powerful interoperability, easily transferring data with Bentley’s MicroStation, as well as Rhino, AutoCAD, ShipConstructor, SolidWorks, and Microsoft Office programs.
