The Warsash School of Maritime Science and Engineering at Solent University is able to provide specialist yacht services for product design manufacture, in the following areas:
We have a Thermwood 67 five axis CNC router with a bed size of 10x5x2ft. This is a highly useful tool for creation of all manner of shapes. In the University, it is mainly used to machine scale yacht hull models from styrene foam. These models are then tested in our towing tank facility.
The Stratasys FDM Titan 3D is a rapid prototyping system that uses fused deposition modelling technology to create ABS plastic prototypes of parts. The part specifications can be provided in a number of files, including IGES.
A Creaform VIUScanner 3D colour laser scanner is available. This hand-held 3D scanner has a resolution of 0.1mm. Scanned data can be processed using GeoMagic Studio, then exported in IGES format for further manipulation.
A number of software suites can be utilised to create and modify product or part designs. Drawings and visualisations as well as IGES files can be created.
