The latest release of Trian3DBuilder comes with new features, export formats, performance and code base improvements:
The Nautic Module supports the generation of large-scale terrains for maritime simulation. All information, which can be found in nautical charts, is imported through ENC vector data. The standard formats to be used are S57 or the encrypted S63 format. The data is sorted based on the ENC code and all attributes are used on import for post-processing and preserved for later use.
The sea bed is Delaunay triangulated from the exact coast line as well as depth contour lines, areas and depth points (soundings). This is combined with a multitude of further terrain generation techniques to form a fully featured database targeting maritime simulation in a matter of only a few hours setup time.
Especially important for nautical training is the correct placement of buoys. Each buoy is imported with specific model and topmark, as well as exact light assignment including color, direction, range, intensity and blink code. Piers and shoreline constructions are also added.
