MedTec Design services can support and assist the marine environment throughout all phases of the design process. Our experienced and adaptable team possess a sound knowledge of marine modelling and detailing skill sets.
Using the very latest computer design software and hardware options, MedTec are able to create fully parametric 3D models for real world operation.
Modelling with parametric systems gives us the flexibility to update and modify as required, which speeds up prototype and design processes. These models allow us to produce both high quality structured and fluently laid out drawings which cover general arrangement, fabrication, installation and many more formats.
A recent project has seen MedTec offer a full design package for a 9M rib (first of its class). This design has been sold and will be seen patrolling the river Medina by the Cowes Harbour commission. The fabrication was undertaken by our friends at Diverse Marine.
Our 9M Rib Drawing Package included:
- Structure Arrangement
- Profile & decks
- Transverse Sections
- Shell Expansion
- Vessel Lifting Points
- Propulsion Machinery Foundations
- Construction Detail Booklet
- Weld Detail Booklet
- Mooring Bollard
- Foundations & SWL Calculations
- 3D Isometric Booklet
- Nested Plate Drawings
- Main Engine & Gearbox Holding Down Arrangement
- Shafting Arrangement
- Inflatable & Solid ‘D’ Tube Drawing & Attachment Method
- Nav Light Arrangement (SOLAS Compliance)
- Hull & Structure Lines Plan
- Equipment Number Calculation
- Tank Capacity Plan
- Preliminary Stability Manual
Marine Case Study
‘My Alicia’ Project
The motor Yacht spans 50m and was built originally in 1930. The owner extended the yacht by 7m and replaced 90% of the steel work.
MedTec was contracted out by Canark to do pipe routing systems on the boat. The 3D modelling software was Autodesk Inventor 2017 combined with a data base called Vault 2017, this allowed multiple people to use the assembly model at once. We were supplied the surface models and the structure. Their engineers had created ACAD 2d drawings schematics of the routing systems, this included chilled water, grey water, black water, HVac, mech vent, hydrant, bilge and hydraulics.
Our goal was to 3d route around the ship to take all the different systems and route it in such a way to allow for access and clearance around the steel work. As the project progressed it was clear that the interiors (net space) needed modelling into the overall assembly. DU provided 2d ACAD drawings with various plan and section views showing the panelling and access hatches. MedTec undertook the task of 3D modelling all the interior and access areas it became clear this was vital in the way the pipe routing was laid out.
Once the pipe routing was agreed and approved, the next task was to create isometric piping layout drawings using our 3d model pipe routing. This also allowed the BOM to be accurate quantities for valves elbows and flanges etc. Also, we were tasked to add the electrical trays out, again using basic supplied drawings. We 3d modelled the trays in position. 2D drawings were created to show positions and sizing. MedTec was involved in the project for around 2 years with a team totalling of 8 people.
Her launch was in August 2018.
