SD_NAUTILUS® is a unique, simple, and low-cost platform primarily designed for the shipbuilding industry, but it can be used in other areas of the mechanical industry as well. It was developed as a supplement to the Rhinoceros basic package especially valuable to naval architects, design centers, and shipyards with the following features:

– SD_Nautilus offers a wide pallet of additional tools for fast 3D modeling typical for shipbuilding
– Automatic positioning of structural elements with naming in a shipbuilding manner
– Automatic specs/part lists creation with weight and COG info
– Quick semi-automatic cross-section extraction, preparation for 2D drawing, and export to any Cad software package
– Quick extraction of structural elements for CNC cutting preparation
– Automatic profile extraction and preparation for 2D profile sketches
– Plate Expansion

Main benefits:

– Low-cost & simple application
– Inexpensive equipment (unlike competition software solutions, Rhinoceros is not highly demanding for hardware requirements)
– Low-cost & easy personnel training
– Possibility of simultaneous work at multiple locations in the world.  No participant number limitation at any level of project development.  - It is not required to have SD installed on workstations for the modeling stage, so outsourcing at the modeling stage is very easy.
– Compatibility with all other similar software packages (AutoCAD, SolidWorks, SC, or similar) is inherited from Rhino itself
– Adaptability to the client’s demands and practice.


– Working with no database requires some manual operating, especially during alterations,
– Parametric connection is for now rationed due to the prospects of the Rhinoceros basic package.

SD_NAUTILUS® is an excellent substitution for expensive software packages intended primarily for smaller design offices, shipyards, and workshops with capacity of up to 10,000 t/year.

Compliance with the customer needs and the total cost of the application make SD_NAUTILUS® outstandingly attractive.
