Nupas-Cadmatic is a CAD software for ship design, which was formerly named Nupas. The platform aids in the entire process of designing and constructing ships and marine structures by including tools for the creation of 3D models, detailed engineering, production information management, and automated drafting output. Nupas-Cadmatic uses parametric modeling techniques to allow users to optimize their designs both during the early stages of design to obtain naval architectural solutions as well as later on when working with construction documentation. It helps reduce errors in production through its integrated approach that makes it easier to communicate design changes across disciplines involved in shipbuilding projects.
