Virtual Tour stx shipbuilding
In Korea, STX Shipbuilding is designing four liquefied nitrogen
gas vessels for ship owners abroad. Using MicroStation, the
firm will create a 3D model of each vessel before it is completed. Simultaneously, this virtual tour will be made available
to the engineering staff so they can continue to move forward
on the design.
MicroStation creates a virtual-reality model of the vessel on
a single platform, ranging from the initial designing stage to
the final construction phase. Now not only designers, but also
the engineers and owners, can work on a single platform for
different aspects of an engineering file. In addition, the cost
of creating a physical vessel mockup is saved because the
vessel is modeled in three dimensions.
The BE Awards of Excellence are
the perfect forum for Atkins to showcase
its work alongside some of the world’s
finest infrastructure professionals.
