The Marine Weight Schedule plugin for Rhino® can generate a bill of masses and inertias, and a bill of materials from a vessel’s 3D model. It takes into account points, curves, surfaces, solids, and blocks, and uses the parameters from the layers’ names to apply the unitary/lineic/surface/volumic masses, with a margin percentage applied.
Custom filters in layer names can also be used for the bill of materials: Stiffeners can be drawn as surfaces (but still counted as lengths instead of areas), as curves, or can be implicitly defined in a surface.
A command is also provided to generate a hydrostatic report at a given height interval (based on Rhino hydrostatics features)
Both reports will be generated as excel files (.xlsx) based on a customizable template, but Microsoft excel doesn’t need to be installed on the computer.
Despite its name, this plugin might also be useful for any project needing a Bill Of Materials.
