Design Philosophy Part 4 Design Process (Digitizing)

The DNA is completely CAD designed in the state of the art Think Design software package, normally only used by designers in the automotive.
Two huge advantages were created by this. 1. we could optimize hullshape and hulldesign(styling) at the same time,
2. All production preperation steps were simplified because all measurements could be generated by the design itself. e.g. Parts (bulkheads, the assembly jig) could be cut by a waterjet with a within tens of  a millimeter.
The digitizing has contributed to a production system that uses far less hours to produce a boat than in more traditional approaches.
The digitizing made it also possibele to compare designs and to validate the new design.
