NDAR and ENSTA Bretagne partner in providing state-of-the-art Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering software for Naval Engineering students, such as GHS, Rhino3D and Orca3D.

In addition to directly supporting the University with academic software and tutoring, NDAR awards the NDAR Best in Class Prize to the winners of the Ship Design Loop assignment at ENSTA Bretagne.

The prize for best achievement in the ENSTA Bretagne Ship Design Loop assignment 2021 consisted of a full license each of Rhino3D + Orca3D + ExpressMarine software and was awarded to the team of:


Matheus Oberdan ALVES DE SOUZA


Luiz Gustavo NUNES LIMA

Pedro Henrique VIDAL

for their outstanding work on “GOAT”, their 35m cargo-passenger vessel design.

The NDAR Prize is co-sponsored by NDAR (France), Orca3D LLC (USA) and B&A Software (Norway)

NDAR and ENSTA Bretagne have partnered for over 10 years. NDAR provides naval engineering software lab kits Rhino3D, Orca3D, GHS and NavCad and tutoring.

A special thank you goes to the great team at ENSTA-Bretagne for their support, without which the NDAR Best in Class Prize would not have been possible.

The software Orca3D, GHS and NavCad allowed us to create an efficient design spiral, which rendered the entire ship-loop exercise effective despite the tight time schedule: A hull form created within minutes with Orca3D, NavCad rapidly confirmed the power requirement, and the associative modelling offered by GHS allowed the running of several complete loops of stability.”
