BC, CANADA, Mar 5, 2012 - ShipConstructor Software Inc. (SSI) has released a new
version of its AutoCAD based CAD/CAM software.
ShipConstructor 2012 R2 sets a
new standard for 3D modeling efficiency and the rapid creation of clear
The latest version of the software also contains multiple enhancements to
speed up the process of labeling production drawings.
ShipConstructor 2012 R2 Subscription Advantage Pack Customers will have the
added benefit of a new feature which allows the ability to automatically label
to the edge of a part rather than piecemark. When combined with the other
labeling improvements in this release, this feature will dramatically reduce the
time and effort required to create clear and concise production documentation.
ShipConstructor 2012 R2 also provides the ability to model Electrical Cable
Supports within Space Allocations. These Cable Supports are included in BOMs,
interference checking, and production output which results in more accurate
center of gravity reporting (by assembly or for the entire vessel), improved
material and production planning, and also helps to prevent errors from making
their way to production where they are more costly to resolve.
Additionally, ShipConstructor 2012 R2 users will appreciate the
troubleshooting and analysis capabilities offered by the voluntary Customer
Involvement Program (CIP) which is being fully rolled out with this version of

Increased Flexibility for Saddle
Connections – Enhancement for creating a saddle

production staff with the ability to specify alignment marks,
edge preparation, bevel codes and any other required information
on plates in a standardized, centrally controlled and
efficiently managed fashion.

improve the software by collecting data on the execution,
sequence and duration of commands within the ShipConstructor
