Design and Fairing Training for Professionals Level 1 & 2
Ships - Yachts - Workboats - Multihulls
Preliminary Design – Final
Design – Fairing for Production – Hull Optimization
Goal: Design high quality hulls with Rhino fast and flexible
Rhino enables accurate,
flexible and fair hull design with the “Rapid Hull Modeling
This method is developed by RhinoCentre in co-operation with other
professionals in the marine industry.
After years of offering training and services to leading companies in
the marine industry worldwide,
RhinoCentre finally developed the unique training modules: Prepare2d
input and Hull Design and
Fairing Level-1 and Level-2.
These three modules are now combined in a three day training that
unveils the mystery of Class-A
fairing to any designer, naval architect and shipyard.
One free extra day enables you to work on your own project under our

Every trainee is asked to send in their specific hull type which will be
practiced during the course. By sending it in, we can check the
feasibility and assist you to be successful. Send in a 3d model, lines
drawing, general arrangement plan or some images.
Two extra services are offered for a special price:
1. Feedback support when you want us to help you out
with your hull design and fairing after the training. Just send us your
and we take a look, make suggestions and
get you rolling again. This is really practical becoming more
finding an elegant hull definition and
2. Project support for your business means that you
can hire us to set up a hull definition for your type of ship hull
whether it is a
new design or reverse engineering of an
existing hull shape from a lines drawing for example.
1 - Prerequisites for this training: Rhino Level 1
training or six months of working with Rhino
2 - For designing some aft bulb hulls and twin skeg
hull configurations the T-Splines plugin for Rhino is required. Even
then this Rapid Hull Modeling
3 - Support hours have to be spent within six months after the training.

Gerard Petersen is naval architect, founder of RhinoCentre and uses
Rhino since 2001 in his projects in the most integrated way. Petersen
developed hull design and fairing skills to be able to develop
innovative concepts with unique hull shapes like the integrated trimaran
The trimaran project proved that Rhino is a professional tool to turn an
idea into reality.
Since 2003 RhinoCentre shares and increases Rhino knowledge in offering
consultancy and other services to the marine industry
The best example is the joined development of the Rapid Hull Modeling
with people of several c
ompanies and organizations.
On the other hand RhinoCentre is in close contact with McNeel &
the developers of Rhino as well as plugin developers to make
Rhino even better.
RhinoCentre maintains with most of our customers a long lasting
based on trust and equality.

Rhino costs a fraction of other
software for modeling hulls.
Rhino is good for initial design
up to production fairing.
Native Rhino is enough for modeling and fairing of most
Orca3d plugin for Rhino
makes modeling and fairing
even easier, and adds tools for (real time) hydrostatics, intact
stability, resistance calculation,
T-Splines plugin is the next step to model complex aft bulb hulls
and twin skeg propeller arrangements as a single surface.
Export your Rhino hull to any analysis tool (damaged stability, CFD
etc.) or engineering software.
Research Institutes like
MARIN rely also on Rhino. They can directly use
your hull surface for their purpose.
Only Rhino can integrate the design of the hull, superstructure,
interior, deck layout, structure
and technical installations in one 3D-model fast and flexible.
Design any ship type with a fair
hull surface in a few hours including basic hydrostatic analysis and a
lines drawing. Editing a design later is done in no time.
For a master in hull modeling the job of accurate reverse engineering
from an existing
lines drawing is a matter of two
or three days work.
Grasshopper plugin enables parameterization of
ship design. This is especially useful for exploring design ideas,
create variations on a theme or eliminating dumb work.
As designing and fairing hulls in Rhino is so fast it is easy to compare
several designs on certain parameters to come to
the best solution and prove
this to the client.
