Brodoprojekt of Serbia Implements the Autoship System


Autoship Systems Corporation (ASC) of Vancouver, Canada has been supporting the design services of Brodoprojekt in Belgrade by delivering several CAD/CAM software programs:  Autoship® Pro  (hull design),  Autoplate®  (shell expansion) and  Autohydro® Pro  (hydrostatics & stability). The Autoship suite of programs allow a designer to create a faired 3D model of the ship, output a lines plan, produce drawings of sections and expanded hull plating as well as create a stability book for class approval.

Brodoprojekt, established in 2002, have already completed several river tour boats and pleasure craft. The founder of the company Mr. Sasa Djordjevic (naval architect) states: “I studied under the legendary naval architect, Dr. Dejan Radojcic at the University of Belgrade who became my mentor where we delved into high speed planing hulls and river going vessels. I now have been involved in over 250 various projects. In looking around at the various marine programs on the market I had always heard that the Autoship System offered one of the better tools. I was a little uncertain about approaching them at first thinking that they only dealt with shipyards, but soon realized that both their pricing and customer service was also attuned to the needs of a medium size design office, such as Brodoprojekt runs. I’m finding their software to be very intuitive to work with and hope to introduce the other CAD/CAM programs shortly.”

The Autoship System offers an integrated CAD/CAM approach from hull design right through to NC cutting. Using the same 3D model through all of the design steps ensures the highest degree of accuracy when final plates are cut. Other programs in the suite include Autostructure® for designing in the internal structural of the vessel (bulkheads, stringers, flanges) that are perfect fit to the hull form. The Autostructure output removes the cut and trim process that many small steel boatbuilders waste time on. Production Manager takes the Autostructure parts and automatically finds the best fit to the sheet material. It then creates a library of left-over material for future use.
