Create a ship, yacht or offshore installation

Rhino software is now a standard in the maritime industry for 3D design, engineering and fabrication of any floating object whether it is a ship, yacht,boat or offshore installation.

Because Rhino is affordable, it is used together with dedicated engineering software like Napa, Ship Constructor, Nupas, NX, SolidWorks etc. Also we see that every company uses Rhino differently. Some only do conceptual design, others perform very specific engineering jobs for example.

In the Netherlands, Rhino is used in most ship yards, design and engineering offices and suppliers to the marine industry. Rhino is also used more and more for designing operations in the offshore industry and to design 3D deck layouts of heavy lift vessels.

For ship and yacht design, our philosophy is that Rhino is the best tool for integrated 3D concept design of the hull, superstructure, interior, concept structure and installations.

RhinoCentre is an authority in the marine industry, as founder Gerard Petersen is a naval architect using Rhino extensively in projects since 2001. He is leading worldwide in the marine industry when it comes to the application of Rhino. Our knowledge is shared with training, consultancy and projects.

Especially the modeling of ship hulls with Rhino is our specialty. We developed the Rapid Hull Modeling Methodology and transfer this method worldwide in the “Hull Design and Fairing Training“. This training is available as open training, in-company training and online training. Also we serve our customers with modeling a hull for them. After that they can pick it up and continue working on the hull or the overall design.

RhinoCentre knowledge is also shared for free at the blog.

RhinoCentre is expert in using: Rhino, Flamingo, Bongo, Grasshopper, V-Ray, Orca3D, Scan & Solve, Scripting, Plugin Development.
