Lecture Designing a Ship in a Virtual Space 3D Modeling
6 p.m. 7 p.m. Lectures, Films, & Book Talks
The process of creating a modern naval surface combatant is a complicated undertaking. Join David Heath (Advanced Concepts Bath Iron Works) and Kevin Ridley (Structural Design Bath Iron Works) as they take you on a journey through the process of designing, engineering and fabricating a ship in virtual space. Utilizing new cutting edge 3D technology such as 3D Printing, Scanning and Projection, they will share how these technologies aid in the shipbuilding process of today’s modern Navy Vessels. Utilizing the historic Percy & Small schooner Cora F. Cressy as an example David and Kevin will demonstrate how modern shipbuilding incorporates 3D modeling. This promises to be a fascinating and innovative presentation.
