Orca3D & Orca3D Marine CFD
Naval Architecture in Rhino3D
Orca3D streamlines the design process with intuitive marine modelling tools inside the friendly Rhino3D environment.
The designer conceptualizes, models, and analyzes his vessel, all without transferring files or learning a new program. Orca3D provides tools to create and fair a hull form but also appendages, decks, and superstructure surfaces, analyze hydrostatics and stability, predict speed vs. horsepower, and track the weight, center of gravity, and cost of the design, all within the comfort of the Rhino environment.
By itself, Rhino3D is already an extremely powerful design tool with an open development platform that allows specialized plug-ins like Orca3D to be added and create a dedicated environment. Thanks to Orca3D’s specialized marine-specific tools, Rhino3D with Orca3D becomes the most versatile and cost-effective marine design program and environment available.
Orca3D contains 4 modules, and is sold in 2 packages:
- Hull Design & Fairing
- Hydrostatics & intact stability
includes Level 1 modules, plus
- Speed/ Power Prediction
- Weight & Cost Tracking
Orca3D Marine CFD is the combination of the Orca3D marine design plug-in for Rhino and the Simerics Multi-Phase (MP) CFD software, to provide a fast, accurate, and easy-to-use CFD solution for the naval architect. By combining a specialized interface in Orca3D and a custom marine template in SimericsMP, we have brought an affordable, powerful, and proven set of analysis tools to the desktop of the designer, without the need to become a CFD specialist.
