Marine Vessel Analysis and Design
Maxsurf provides naval architects with software tools for all phases of the vessel design and analysis process. By using a common 3D surface model, design files can be optimized to accurately flow through concept, initial, and detailed design stages. With Maxsurf, users can confidently model hull forms; assess stability and strength; predict performance; and carry out initial structural definition and analysis.
All Maxsurf modules share a consistent graphical interface—which reduces training time, increases ease of use, and allows designers to visualize complex configurations. Maxsurf is based on industry standards, including trimmed NURB surface modeling, DXF, and IGES data exchange. It also exhibits powerful interoperability, easily transferring data with Bentley’s MicroStation, as well as Rhino, AutoCAD, ShipConstructor, SolidWorks, and Microsoft Office programs.
Bentley Systems is pleased to announce the release of Maxsurf 20.05 v8i. This is a minor update to Maxsurf 20 v8i. This update includes an option for selecting the license to be used by the application as well as showing the licenses available and their activation status. This makes it easier for you to control and verify exactly which license is being used by the applications. This is particularly useful if you own multiple suite licenses or own a mix of suite and module licenses.
In addition, this update also includes a small number of enhancements and minor bug fixes to Maxsurf Motions and Maxsurf Stability.
