Introductiondevelops, markets and supports CAD/CAM/CIM softwaresolutions, with the mission of increasing overall efficiency in themaritime industry.For more than 30 years the company has provided shipyards, designagents and maritime equipment suppliers with new ways to improve costefficiency, quality and performance. Our solutions are proven togenerate time savings and to increase speed to market.With its head office in Sweden and offices in the Republic of Korea,China, Japan, Germany, the UK, Russia, Singapore and the USA, TribonSolutions serves the global maritime industry and customers in morethan 43 countries. The Need for a Ship Building APIThe building of a ship is initiated by the need to transport goods,people, or firepower. The particular need dictates the dimensions,layout of the cargo area, engine power, and other basic attributes forthe ship.

The design for the ship then meshes these requirements withstrength and safety regulations. Because most transport needs areunique, many ship designs are built only once or only in a smallseries.The Tribon software suite covers the ship building process from thefirst concept to the finished ship. The design and construction of aship involves a high degree of concurrent engineering. To solve thisproblem Tribon uses a Product Information Model (PIM), which is thecentral repository and single source of information for designers,planners, administrators of material, manufacturing personnel, andothers working on design and construction. Choosing PythonTribon began work on its API in 1995. Two different paths wereconsidered at this stage: Either to publish directly the libraries usedby Tribon, or to create a wrapper on top of existing code.The first approach would make all our functionality available to theuser, but users would have to use the same development environment asTribon Solutions, change compiler versions when Tribon Solutions didso, and so forth. This would have been an expensive and complexsolution, only usable by the largest shipyards in the world, those thathad their own large IT and development departments.The second approach was preferable, as long as a tool could be foundor developed that covered most of the given criteria.

Tribon alreadyhad a geometry macro language that was developed in-house, but toextend it to the desired level of functionality would have been costlyto implement and maintain. The remaining option was to find a 3rd partysolution that fulfilled the API's needs.During investigation of options, Python was discovered quite early whena member of the development team read about Python in a computermagazine. After some initial experimentation there were really no othercontenders. Python had it all. It was a beautiful programming languagethat was extensible, embeddable, platform independent, and had nolicense cost.When it came to incorporate Python into the Tribon software, we foundthe integration to be quite easy and problem-free, and it was achievedwith very little effort. The result of this merge between Tribon andPython was named Tribon Vitesse, and the first version of Python usedwas 1.2. ExperiencesDuring the last seven years Tribon Solutions has been able to move withthe updates of Python without any major inconvenience to our customersor ourselves.

Today we have customers that have developed hundreds ofmodules over the years. Python's platform independence, and the factthat it is an interpreted language, have been a major benefit tocustomers that have migrated from the VMS and UNIX to Windows. Theyhave been able to port their code with no changes or at most only minorchanges.Today Tribon Solutions has customers that have, by utilizing the powerof Tribon Vitesse, been able to reduce design time of certain complexship structures from four weeks to two days, while improving overallquality.

Tribon M3 License

Export- Tribon/Aveva Marine Lines MacroThis file format can be used to export data which can be subsequently imported into Lines within the Tribon/Aveva Marine InitialDesign tool. Lines itself does not have the ability to import native geometry using a standard file format such as IGES.

Tribon M3 Crack

However, using this option, geometry can be exported and a close approximation regenerated from the Macro file in Lines using native geometry. Geometry defined in X-Topology is processed to ensure that there are data points that correspond to each curve intersection and tangent constraints are transfered.
