DEVELOPING SAFE, COMFORTABLE AND EFFICIENT MARINE VESSELS BASED ON SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY
At DLBA we strive to develop safe, comfortable and efficient marine vessels through the application of science and technology. Science and Technology (S&T) involves pushing the technology envelope to generate breakthroughs in engineering disciplines. Research and development (R&D) is focused more on generating an end product that may owe its origins to proven science and technology. Our team of technical experts has a wide portfolio of projects creating novel, low-risk solutions for tomorrow’s vessels.
WHAT WE DO
- Industrial watercraft design
- Sportfish boat design
- Interior design and space planning
- Exterior design and styling
- 3-D surface and solid modeling
- Graphic design
- Development of advertising material
UNDERSTANDING THE CLIENTS NEEDS
We begin our design process by understanding our client’s needs first. Through the voice of the customer it is critical to understand the aesthetic style and functional objectives of any item to be created, whether it’s a fender hanger or a 50m yacht. Our talented design team takes inspiration from the appropriate source for the given project. We start with hand sketches to explore the design direction and opportunities. Once the concept meets the customers vision, our designers employ the latest tools and techniques in parametric modeling and graphic arts software to develop fully integrated products. Spatial planning, form, and proportions can be determined quickly and efficiently.
3-D computer models are created in the next phase of the development effort. DLBA combines the use of VR (Virtual Reality), advanced rendering programs, and 3-D printing to ensure our
customers visualize the designs during the development process. This approach improves customer satisfaction by reducing the risk of design changes emerging later in the project.
The 3-D models DLBA develops are tailored to suit the level of detail and fidelity required for the project. Our team possesses the creativity and skills to develop detailed surface models for the composite tooling industry. Our understanding of technical requirements, ergonomics, and fabrication techniques allows us to provide user-friendly and cost-effective tool designs.
Our broad experience across multiple markets, products, and disciplines enables DLBA to develop your vision into a successful project.
