Export to a variety of graphics formats is useful for publishing, presentation, or web site illustration. DELFTship is a lot less expensive than a professional CAD package, with stress analysis extensions. Location: milwaukee also, any good books on boat hydro statics, boat ladings, and composites you all would recommend for a BSME reading level?

Software package won't matter, I've used both Pro-E and SolidWorks and I'd be quite happy doing a shape in Rhino alongside a 2D for dimensioned details drawings etc. My understanding is software for mechanical design such as Solidworks, Pro-E and Inventor are optimal for design work with regular, geometrical elements such as planes, cylinders and spheres, but are not particularly adept at arbitrary curved surfaces which are critical in much of boat design.

There were no computers in the dusty old mould loft shed when i first started, just highly experienced professionals.

Location: Hampshire UK Main point is the advantage of Marine software lets say Maxsurf or whatever is they are geared to design a hull (or multihull) shape. The ability to push and pull surfaces, give curve of areas, Prismatic Coef etc is all part of a dedicated marine package. If you can get your more general modeller to give you the shapes and information you need go ahead use it. There are quite a few good modelling packages out there and they have got an awful lot better over the years.


Autodesk have never been able to develop their own 3D product but have been clever enough to buy quite a few decent 3D packages.
Marine specific packages like Fastship, Delftship, and Rhino+Orca among others are better suited to creating surfaces with compound curvature and have built in routines or add ons for hydrostatics etc. 04:13 PM  Anyone with CAD or boat design software interested in helping me on a boat design?! When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals.
I have been told by naval architects with regard to small sailboats (4m) which do plane that no software currently will accurately predict all the behaviour.
The only real advantage in surface modelling is it lets you go through more options in less time. You can write addons to things like Pro-E to do this, and it has been done for some America's Cup boats. We had all the data from them necessary to design the interior of the First Class cabin area for the 777. A CAD 'ergoman' was used developing the 380 to ensure access to all necessary parts for maintenance etc.
Horses for courses, as long as the software you use can do the job well, the package or a combination of, should not be a problem. Unless your bidding for a world record, you wont be doing stress analysis or hydrodynamic calculations that shave off 0.0001% here and there. There is a lot of stuff on design out there from Dr Bourne's two pennies on top of each other rolled apart to give the mid section to attempts at planing hulls. Most of the sweet shapes could quite easily be drawn by hand in 2D and many have been in the past.
SolidWorks is also owned by Dassault, and as their 'cheaper' product has Rhino as a 'Gold Partner' to handle parametrically editable complex surfaces.


Ironically it struggled with stuff both Pro-E and Rhino could do easily, one of my colleagues got involved and helped write some routines that allowed the shape (external panels) to be developed.

As a design engineer with 40+ years small dinghy racing in lots of different designs, of course I've built and designed a few boats now.
Bear in mind the weight transfer of the body, I believe this is very significant in developing a fast shape. However, I cant image Joe Bloggs buying a bit of software costing more than his house just to draw (I stress draw not design) and build a boat.
Trust your intuition with the shape and don't be afraid to modify it once you understand where it needs to be improved. I use Delftship for the hull design and hydrostatics and move from Delftship to Solidworks with .iges files. Capable of very complex surfaces, good with draft tapers and fillets (test of any modeller) and updates 2D drawings fast.
You might end up with a shell shape not unlike an AC72 hull, with white bobbin stuck up top! There are several simple tricks you can use to tie the two together in the event that a hull modification is made in delftship so the corresponding changes in SW are made.
