The Structural Manufacturing Principle Particular properties are included in the Ship Catalog Data reference data in the [Product Folder]\ShipCatalogData\BulkLoad\DataFiles\ProjectDBFiles\ShipClassCustomAttrs.xls workbook on the CustomInterfaces sheet. To add the Principle Particular properties to the model database, you have to bulk load the workbook into the site database and modify the property values.

The Principle Particular custom classes include:

  • Length Overall

  • Length Between Perpendiculars

  • Breadth

  • Depth Molded

  • Design Draft Molded

  • Starting Point of Rise of Floor

  • Rise of Floor

  • Radius of Bilge Circle

  • Start Point of Parallel Part

  • End Point of Parallel Part

  • Mid Ship or Position at Maximum Breadth

  • X Position of AP

  • X Position of FP

  • Ship Type

The Mid Ship or Position at Maximum Breath property is important because it is used to drive the molded forms conventions for plates and profiles. For example, the primary profile orientation for a deck may be: Forward for profiles fore of the Mid Ship Position and Aft for profile aft of the Mid Ship Position. This definition will not work if the Mid Ship or Position at Maximum Breadth property is not defined.

Bulkload the Marine Project Management Custom Attributes

The custom classes are bulkloaded into the Marine site database. The custom classes are inherited by the model databases associated with the site. The values of the custom classes are assigned to each model in the Project Management task.

  1. Open Start > All Apps > Intergraph Smart 3D > Bulkload Reference Data.

    The Bulkload window appears.

  2. Under Excel files, click Add and browse to add [Product Directory]\ShipCatalogData\BulkLoad\DataFiles\ProjectDBFiles\ShipClassCustomAttrs.xls.

  3. Under Bulkload mode, select Append to existing catalog.

  4. In the Catalog information box, specify MSSQL as the Database Type, then select the appropriate Site database information.

    The custom classes are loaded into the site database, so select the Marine site database and site schema database. DO NOT select the catalog database and catalog schema.

  5. In the Schema information box, select the appropriate Site schema database information.

  6. Specify a log file or browse to locate the log file using the ellipsis button.

  7. Specify a Symbol and custom program file location or browse to locate the file using the ellipsis button.

  8. Click Load to bulk load the Structural Manufacturing custom classes into the site.

  9. Click Close when you have finished.

Add the Principle Particular Properties to the Ship Model

  1. From the Start menu, select Programs > Intergraph Smart 3D > Project Management.

    The Project Management task appears.

  2. Select a ship model database in the Project Management tree view.

  3. Click Edit > Properties. You can also edit ship properties by clicking Properties , or by right-clicking on a ship icon and selecting Properties on the shortcut menu.

  4. Enter values for the Principle Particular custom classes.

    • Length OverAll – Overall length of the hull (along the x-axis).

    • Length Between Perpendiculars – Length (along the x-axis) between the Aft Perpendicular (AP) and the Forward Perpendicular (FP).

    • Breadth – Total width of the hull (along the y-axis).

    • Depth Molded – Depth (along the z-axis) from the molded baseline to the upper deck level (freeboard); measured at midship.

    • Design Draught Molded – Height (along the z-axis) from the baseline to the design waterline. The design waterline is based on the operational load of the ship.

    • Starting Point of Rise of Floor – Distance (along the y-axis) from the centerline to the start of the Floor Rise at midship.

    • Rise of Floor – Distance (along the z-axis) from the baseline to the floor at the beginning of the bilge radius.

    • Radius of Bilge Circle – Radius of the bilge.

    • Start Point of Parallel Part – Distance (along the x-axis) from the Aft Perpendicular to the start of the parallel midbody.

    • End Point of Parallel Part – Distance (along the x-axis) from the Aft Perpendicular to the end of the parallel midbody.

    • Midship or position at Maximum Breadth – Midship frame along the x-axis for a ship with a parallel midbody, or the midship frame along the x-axis where maximum breadth occurs for a ship without a parallel midbody.

    • X Position of AP – Position of the Aft Perpendicular frame along the x-axis at the transom above the waterline.

    • X position of FP – Position of the Forward Perpendicular frame along the x-axis at the bow above the waterline.

    • Ship Type – Any text string for ship type, such as FPSO or LNG.
