The Interactive Viewer – A new way of visualizing designs

During the design process, there is a vision. A clear idea of what your vessel will be like. Translating ideas into a 3D image is what the visualization department at C-Job Naval Architects does best. Whether it is into a still image render or animations, they combine engineering with aesthetics. Now, C-Job is able to take it to the next level with their in-house developed tool – The Interactive Viewer.

Next generation visualization

The Visualization department at C-Job Naval Architects joins the rest of the company by being innovative in their work and pushing the boundaries of what is possible. Photo-realistic renders such as the C-Job R&D Autonomous Guard Vessel or the 6.500 cubic yards TSHD for GLDD or animations to aid a shipyard in selling a design such as Padmos Shipyard are part of what the discipline at C-Job offers.

Geoffrey Smits, Discipline Coordinator at the company, is always looking ahead and trying to incorporate the latest technology into creating something that is not seen across the industry.

The Interactive Viewer can be a one stop shop where a client can incorporate anything they need into one easily accessible tool. C-Job can ensure the full scope of deliverables are hosted in the Interactive Viewer. Allowing documents such as 2D arrangement drawings, technical specifications, and material lists to be accessed at any time.

Geoffrey Smits, Discipline Coordinator, says “During development, it can be difficult to understand how the design will translate into a physical ship. Our latest in-house developed tool – the Interactive Viewer – allows our clients to see their design come to life.

“Actually, it goes beyond. It gives them the opportunity to experience their design as if they walk across the deck or are inspecting the engine room.”

The Interactive Viewer holds a complete 3D model of the proposed vessel and will allow any user to rotate the model across one or several axes providing 360° access to the design. Additionally, C-Job can include a host of creative layout options. Details and additional features specific to the design are accessible for the user via buttons.
