Orca3D second WIP announced
Orca3D is a marine design and analysis plug-in for Rhino from the Advanced Technology Center at DRS C3 Systems, Inc. All Rhino 4.0 users are invited to try the second Work-in-Progress (WIP) release.

Orca3D currently includes tools for hull modeling and fairing, as well as intact hydrostatics and stability, and new capabilities will continue to be added. Current features include:

  • Hull Assistants, to instantly create a 3D surface model of a planing, sailboat, or ship hull. Change parameters, and watch the hull shape and hydrostatics change in real-time.
  • Quick and easy creation of stations, buttocks, and waterlines, and real-time update of the curves as the hull surface is modified.
  • Real-time hydrostatics, so that changes to the hull are instantly analyzed and displayed for displacement, LCB, waterplane area, and LCF.
  • Special "Design" condition for hydrostatics calculations, so that complete hydrostatics can be computed with a single button click.
  • Complete intact Hydrostatics and Stability calculations, at various combinations of:
    • Displacement or Flotation Plane Height
    • LCG or Trim Angle
    • TCG or Heel Angle
    • Range of Heel Angles for Righting Arm calculations
  • Output via Microsoft Report Viewer, allowing direct printing of reports or export to Excel or Adobe Acrobat, as well as user-customizable formatting.
  • Corner continuity command, to ensure curvature continuity around the forefoot
  • One-button click to create a 3-view Lines Plan
  • Export of section curves to IDF or PIAS formats
  • Hierarchical Layer Tree control, showing the objects in each of the layers
