Software - Ship Constructor

ShipConstructor is the dominant AutoCAD-based 3D product modeling and production planning software for the marine industry. ShipConstructor 2006 marries AutoCAD’s ease-of-drafting with the logical powers of a sleek SQL Server database design.This is the first post of many where I will be finding softwares that other industries use for design, fabrication and management. The first software I am writing about is shipconstructor. Being in the AEC industry, it's amazing how far behind we are, or at least that we are not further. This programs seems to do all the things BIM is promising, and it's all in one package. Im not sure when they say "AutoCAD-based 3D product," if it is built on top of Autocad (like a plugin) or if it behaves like autocad in that it is drafting based. For this write up I did not get a chance to demo the software but in the further I will be writing about either program I use or I will request demo versions.
