Almaqam Dhow 3D Modeling

Almaqam Dhow 3D Modeling

The project:

Al Maqam Dhow is one of the oldest Wooden Boats in UAE, it was belonging to Rulers Family in 70's, The Dhow was regularly maintained over years. However due to the technology revolution, the Wooden Dhow Fashion was neglected By Fishermen and Overseas Traders who were the main Users of these Boats.



The mission:

Our client decided converting Al Maqam Dhow into Luxury Yacht and to keep structural Shape as it is. The Main Purpose of this Project is To Enhance the Boat Performance By adding Technology Feature into it and To Keep the Shape as Traditional Part.


It has been requested to 3d Survey the entire internal and external Boat Using High Definition 3D Device. Deliver 3d reverse model


The Execution:

GEOTECH 3D used High Accurate 3D Reverse Engineering Applications to capture / Analyze and generate Tight 3D Model. We used a Leica Pulse Scanner to scan internal and External Face of the Hull Structure. We generated Registered Point Model and Frame By Frame 3D model. we Created This work done in 4 weeks.


Deliverable were:

  • AutoCAD 3D

  • Rhino Model.

  • 2D CAD Plans

  • Animation Video Fly through
