Ship resistance CFD service for Rhino 3D users

If you are using Rhino 3D for hull modelling, you can participate in preparing the CFD simulations for calm water hull resistance. We offer to conduct ship resistance CFD for 100 EUR per simulation, if we receive STL files from you that are ready for our meshing process. The preparation of STL files is straight forward, as explained in our short instruction video.

What sets this offer apart from our typical offering is the elimination of additional fees for multiple hull geometries. Your cost remains a flat rate of 100 EUR per simulation, regardless of the number of geometries tested. This approach stems from the fact that extensive man-hours need to be invested in modifying client-provided CAD files. Since you know your 3D models better than we do, this task can be efficiently managed on your end, allowing us to offer reduced rates and waive fees associated with geometry alterations. This means you have the freedom to experiment with various geometries at no extra cost – for instance, running simulations on 10 different speeds for one geometry would incur the same cost as testing 10 separate geometries at a single speed.

Follow the simple steps below to use this service.

Hull resistance CFD in steps:

STEP 1: Get more information

Get familiar with general information about this service for ship resistance CFD, such as input, output, delivery time and similar. Download the 4-page information document and the report example using the links below.

STEP 2: Watch the instruction video

Watch the instruction video showing how to prepare and export your hull geometry so that we can use it to generate the CFD mesh and conduct the ship resistance CFD simulation.

STEP 3: Prepare input for the ship resistance CFD analysis

Download the input Excel data sheet designed to make it easier for you to send us the input data we need to conduct the ship resistance CFD analysis. In this way, you do not need to worry about forgetting something.

STEP 4: Send us the geometry and inputs

Send us an email with the data sheet, and request a SharePoint link for uploading the STLs, if you do not already have one. Also make sure to send us any questions or issues you have with the process.
