Create multiple outfitting modules using Vitesse script

| 2011/10/16 21:15

Setting up a new Tribon project for the outfitting applications involves the creation of new outfitting modules. Boring job that has to be done. The usual way is to use "Tribon design manager" - an interactive application where the outfitting modules can be created one by one. Imagine that the number of these modules is 50 or 100 or more?

Here is one simple Vitesse script, that will help you create all outfitting modules at once. It uses an external text file for input.

import sys


Python modules, how do they work?

| 2011/10/16 21:15

1. Introduction

As we start writing larger Python programs, the amount of names of our variables, functions, classes, etc. grows so, that it becomes necessary to organise them into some categories or subsets, commonly called namespaces. The following language structures offer such facilities:

  • classes,
  • modules,
  • packages.

In this article we will not talk about classes, as they deserve a separate discussion.


Tribon Data Base superserver and subserver

| 2011/10/16 21:15

The client-server access to a data bank located on a remote machine is based on ONC RPC (Open Network Computing Remote Procedure Calls). In order to provide access to data bank located on the server we must have the following Windows services running on the server machine:

  • PowerRPC Portmapper
  • TRIBON M1 DB Service

TRIBON M1 DB Service is what we call "superserver". Its executable file is - ea312.exe.


MBM Open Source Project - Accomodation for Tribon M2 / M3

| 2011/10/16 21:15


This project originaly was created for demonstration purposes at the very beginning of Vitesse, just when it was implemented for Tribon structure functionality. At that time there was no idea to make it open source project, neither to update it further because we expected that Tribon Solutions will create an accommodation module in near furture.


PDMS Guides by Marko Envormaa

| 2011/10/25 20:15

The following set of guides are created by Marko Envormaa to help him understand the differences between the modeling and drafting concepts and between Tribon Hull and Vantage PDMS Structural design while using it as a structural designer on both types, onshore and offshore projects. The author has kindly agree to share these documents with all who are interesting in his findings:

"My very short PDMS experience is based on using the last 12 months VANTAGE PDMS v11.5 Structural Design- and Draft- modules on two onshore- and two offshore- projects as a Structural Designer.
