Offshore companies are faced with a shifting energy landscape and the need to operate in ever more challenging conditions at greater efficiencies. This necessitates a continuous stream of innovative design.
With high-fidelity dynamics, cable-systems and ocean modelling, Vortex Studio lets marine engineers integrate real-time engineering models, advanced visualization and in-the-loop simulation to solve the challenges of offshore and subsea operations.
De-risk offshore installation projects and improve workability by simulating operations with realistic vessels, top-side, and subsea equipment.
Perform virtual operations to support tendering proofs-of-concept and de-risking of projects
Improve vessel workability by simulating challenging environments with accurate hydrodynamic and wave models
Create a digital-twin of offshore vessel operations and prove work-plans long before equipment hits the water
Real-time simulation for Offshore & Subsea Operations
Vortex is a complete solution for real-time simulation and high-quality visualization of offshore and subsea equipment and operations. Vortex Studio lets you focus on your engineering challenges and avoid reinventing the wheel—cobbling together disparate and imprecise game-engines, physics-engines, and in-house code.
Vortex Studio combines mechanical dynamics, hydrodynamics, cable simulation, advanced 3D graphics and the desktop tools engineers need to create simulations of machines operating in marine
Build interactive simulations of cranes, ROVs, pipelay, drill-deck equipment, heave-compensated systems, and more.
Ocean & Hydrodynamics
Employ ocean wave models, ultra-realistic ocean rendering and hydrodynamics of hulls and submersibles.
Cable & Line Simulation
Model hoisting and rigging systems from the drum to the hook, as well as tethers and towing cables.
I’m proud to announce the third Vortex Studio release of the year, Vortex Studio 2018c. It’s an unusually large release, bursting at the seams with upgrades and new features. We’ve done some significant work to …
Welcome to my guided tour of the Vortex Studio interface! If you’ve never used Vortex Studio before, this tutorial will familiarise you with the Vortex Studio interface components you’ll be working with throughout your simulation …
In product development, a requirement is a physical or functional need that a particular design must fulfill. It defines the gap that a necessary or desired capability, feature or characteristic will bridge to provide value …
Plant life and other vegetation typically comprise an important visual element in realistic driver training simulations, particularly for off-road vehicles. With this in mind, Vortex Studio’s Vegetation Library allows you to add realistic trees, plants, and …
A few releases back, we added a “daylight preview” feature to the Gallery. Shortly after, we began getting user requests to allow manual re-positioning of the 3D View’s light source – the idea is that …
Hi there! We just wanted to take a quick moment to spotlight Vortex Studio Editor, CM Labs’ complete desktop-based 3D editing environment on the Vortex Studio platform. It’s designed for the development & deployment of interactive …
