A CAD model contains a lot of data about the parts to be cut. Traditionally people would program all this data again to cut the parts. This is a very time consuming and unnecessary process. Thanks to a successful integration, ShipConstructor can easily be connected to an HGG Profile Cutting Line.
SSI ShipConstructor contains a catalog with pre-defined end cuts, cut-outs and penetrations. These tools can be defined and applied to speed-up the detailing process. All parts need to be detailed including markings to guarantee complete extraction of design data.
One of the features of SSI Enterprise-Platform PubliserLT is the extraction of design data from the ShipConstructor model. PublisherLT can export parts as enriched .dxf-files which contain all data needed for 3D profiling. The export includes data and geometry of both the part and the markings. HGG’s ProCAD comes with a hardware key to enable import and conversion of these special .dxf-files by ProCAM Framework for further processing.
The integration between SSI ShipConstructor and HGG supports extraction and processing of design data including bevels.
Importing of other profiles with HGG’s ProCAM Framework like H, I and U beams available on request.
