"Rhino Plug-Ins for Naval Architects" Webinar

On behalf of Orca3D and the ASGVIS team, we'd like to thank those who attended yesterday's webinar, Rhino Plug-Ins for Naval Architects.

The 60-minute webinar explained the benefits of using Orca3D and V-Ray for marine designers.

Larry Leibman, Principal Naval Architect at DRS Defense Solutions, Advanced Marine Technology Center, began the webinar by diving into Orca3D's capabilities for hull design and fairing, hydrostatics and stability, speed/power prediction, and weight and cost tracking using the design of a 26' center console powerboat.

Fernando Rentas Pedrogo of ASGVIS then used that same vessel to demonstrate the V-Ray rendering plug-in for Rhino and its rendering capabilities. He explained material settings, how to create a water surface, positioning of the sun, and tips for blending the rendered image into a photograph; all of which resulted in a powerful 3D, photorealistic image.
