Arksen

SEA VESSELS DESIGNED TO EXPLORE SOME OF THE MOST PRECIOUS PLACES ON THE PLANET

Here at canVERSE innovation & technology are at our core. When we were approached by Arksen to showcase their latest marine exploration vessel we knew exactly where to start. Working directly with the Arksens CAD data, canVERSE was able to create a real-time 3D fully configurable model of the Arksen 85 vessel with Unity Forma.

“Previously, creating a static render of our vessels would take a couple of weeks to coordinate. Now, the model feels alive as clients can interact with the Arksen 85 in real-time, viewing it from any angle while customising options with Unity Forma.”

-Eleanor Briggs – Marketing Director – Arksen

Workflow

ALLOWS NEW IDEAS TO BE TRIED AND TESTED 

Our pipeline allows us to ingest multiple variants of the CAD data. Using a combination of Rhino 3D, Pixyz Studio, ArtEngine, Unity and Unity Forma has allowed us to create a configurable ‘digital twin’ of the Arksen 85. Finally we deploy each version on Furioos to allow customers direct access to the model without requiring a powerful PC.

Not only has this allowed potential customers to configure the options they may want it has also allowed us to collaborate directly with the team at Arksen on potential design improvements and modifications. 

“Unity Forma lets clients emotionally engage with their Arksen, as they get to see and feel a digital twin of their boat in context, rather than an abstract CAD drawing.”

-Jim Mair, Technical Director, Arksen
