All the information about the wide variety of Services we have to offer.
At Ben Rogerson Yacht Design, we take a wholistic approach to the yacht design process. In incorporating the concept design, naval architecture and engineering, performance development as well as production detailing. We can provide an efficient and structured process, ensuring continuity in a fully integrated design package.
At the core of our design process is a rigorous attention to detail, with a high degree of pride taken throughout each element in the design, below outlines some of our main services and processes, for further information on how we can help with your projects, it would be great to hear from you so please get in touch.
Exterior & Interior Yacht Design
At the heart of our design process is our ability to communicate and effectively transfer our client’s vision into reality. We elevate from simple sketches and mood boards, advancing through design techniques to ensure our styling direction is built on the strongest of foundations. Some of these design techniques we use are with Adobe Suite, Keyshot Rendering and simply Pen and Paper.
Design morals embedded into our design philosophy:
Optimised performance through mathematical modelling and analysis
In partnership with Steuart Lynes MEng MIet we have devoted a significant amount of resources to the development of our in-house performance analysis toolset and VPP “Formflow” utilising Artificial Neural Networks and mathematical modelling techniques to enable cost-effective analysis and optimisation with up to 6 degrees of freedom and the ability to optimise across a large number of variables including Hull form variations, board immersion, trim tab and rudder angle to name a few from simulations undertaken in RANSE CFD.
- In-house developed VPP and performance analysis software “FormFlow”
- Numeca Fine Marine RANS CFD, Cloud Computation
- Resistance & Seakeeping
- Optimisation utilising Neural Networks and Mathematical optimisation techneques
3D Modelling & Production Design
Utilising 3D & 2D Design Software Platforms
At BRYD we have invested a great deal in our trade tools, using a high end Parametric Modelling PLM software, Siemens NX. Utilised within F1, Aerospace and the Americas Cup, with it’s advanced surfacing capability’s NX allows us to approach the design in a highly adaptable and efficient manner delivering extremely accurate design from concept to mechanical and structural layouts.
NX also provides us with a powerful drafting platform enabling us to directly translate model revisions highly efficiently. In line with the current industry, BRYD also uses AutoCAD for a proportion of our manual and composite drafting work.
3D Scanning & Reverse Engineering
Point cloud scan surveys and 3D
Reverse engineering of geometry and tooling from 3D point cloud survey enables a highly accurate method of attaining the 3D geometry, from which new surfaces can be developed for CNC production. In surface modelling, we utilise our Siemens NX Mach 3 industrial design licences which provide us with a whole range of in-depth surfacing analysis toolsets to develop fair, continuous, and symmetrical geometry with a high degree of accuracy.
Over the last few years, we have undertaken a number of reverse engineering projects for the leisure marine, commercial and superyacht industries including:
- Product reverse engineering
- Refit Projects
- Large scale structural modifications
- Performance analysis simulations
- Equipment installation feasibility studies
