This is a mean looking ship. It’s actually a “Littoral Combat Ship”, the USS Independence. And what’s that got to do with Victoria, BC? Well, this state-of-the-art US Naval craft was designed with ShipConstructor software.
The Independence is designed to handle submarine, surface and mine threats in the 21st century. It has a crew of 40, three helicopters and carries armoured Humvees and troops below deck.
ShipConstructor is a Victoria firm that offers shipbuilding software that provides design and modeling tools for building marine structures, so that includes oil rigs and platforms as well as a whole range of marine craft from tugs to massive cargo ships. This page offers examples of what the software can be used to design. I also found a YouTube tutorial video of the software in action.
