From start to finish, technology is a driving force behind building PDQ boats. The power of this technology is phenomenal in its ability to develop shapes and configurations. With these systems, our designers can quickly and accurately perform weight distribution studies using intricate mathematical models that would otherwise take weeks to complete.
The advantage of having a composite model is that we can accurately see perspective views. This "real life" view gives us the ability to place a hypothetical person in the boat to gather ergonomic data. These ergonomic reference models in turn help us select every item and its placement on board. When it come time to build, we can create cross sections and render 3D surfaces that can then be machined to shape.
