General information on the plate

  • part name as text

  • part info as text containing build name, assembly name, plate planarity (P or NP), thickness

  • orientation arrows indicating the 3D orientation of the plate

Grid markings

  • waterline grid markings with text (WLxx)

  • longitudinal grid markings with text for starboard and port side (SBxx and PSxx)

Plate markings

  • line were other plates touch the plate

  • directional waves indicate what side of the touching plate is marked

  • text annotation indicates the name of the touching plate

Profile markings

  • contours of touching profile sides are marked

  • text annotation indicates the type and length of the touching profile

Flange markings

  • flat bar profiles attached perpendicular to a plate side are marked on the plate

  • text annotation indicates the type and length of the flat bar profile

  • straight and curved segments of the flange are indicated with their length and radius

  • when found, flanges that are not attached at their centerlines will be indicated

  • alongside flange segments dashed straight lines are printed as a reference to check for deformations


  • plate edges can have overlength added (eg for forming or connectivity tolerances)


  • plate edges can have annotated codes, indicating a chamfering or bevelling of that edge

  • chamfers can be detected when incorporated in the 3D model or can be added during customization

Bending info

  • on a plate bends are annotated as text codes indicating radius angle and side

  • small radii are indicated by a line at the center of the bend, larger radii are indicated by start and end of the bend
