Wärtsilä Model Wizard

Wärtsilä Model Wizard is a powerful toolkit for development and update of highly integrated databases, making it possible to create simulation areas and ship models for anywhere in the world and automatically present them perfectly.

  • High quality and precise databases creation for the most realistic and effective training
  • Libraries of ready to use standard 3D objects and textures
  • Existent ships and sailing areas databases editing
  • User-friendly interfaces


    Model Wizard is a multi-functional development toolkit, designed for the development and modification of high-quality marine simulation area databases and ship models, for use in both marine simulators, and other applications which use the Wärtsilä Seagull visualization system.

    • Keeping the Customer databases up-to-date, creation new, customization and fine tuning of existent ones;
    • Modelling the navigational environment (depths, aids to navigation, mooring facilities etc.) and the ships motion model to fully fit the training or investigation specific objectives;
    • Fully integrated and self-concordant output databases:
      • All the components such as Visual and Radar Imitator representation, Electronic charts and others are generated upon the same datasets ensuring their automatic synchronization;
      • The source data which are needed to correct the database are stored in the database distributive file ensuring editing of required version of the database in the future and making the same data file suitable both for installation into the simulator and for further editing/correction of the database;
    • Handy interfaces – The sailing areas editor is designed to look like an electronic charts editor, making operations with it easy and comfortable even for operators who are not familiar with 3d editing;
    • Ability to edit existent areas and (or) models from the Customer NTPRO simulator collection;
    • Highest level of automation and databases validation at their generation stage.


    Scene Editor

    Allows editing and creation of sailing areas. Main features:

    Automated Creation of Navigation Areas upon a set of installed electronic charts

    No 3D modeling skills are required for a developer when constructing basic level navigational areas

    Basic scenes can be easily generated from a user selected charts set

    Powerful and easy editing of the sailing area content

      • A handy interface is designed as a stylized electronic chart editor to make 3D simulations area creation and editing feasible and simpler
      • Coastline configuration, such as mooring walls and embankments, can be created easily and realistically
      • The area can be supplemented with 3D objects (prototypes) from the object library and any objects created using Visual Model Editor component of Model Wizard
      • Navigational aids are automatically generated from data embedded in the same electronic navigational charts and can be easily corrected when is needed
      • Easy creation of vegetation and settlement areas with the ability to define their generation parameters
      • Bathymetry and elevations data correction

    Simulator data creation automation and synchronization

      • 3D landscape models generation, both terrain and seabed
      • Automated generation of the sailing area radar image database upon the 3D terrain model and chart data
      • Automated generation of output electronic charts for the sailing area

    Virtual Shipyard

    Allows development and editing of conventional displacement ship models including tug boats. Main features:

    • Powerful development tool for hydrodynamic ship models
    • Operational and fully automated model testing
    • Automated comprehensive explanation (or warning) for each VSY operation
    • Automated output documentation and reports

    Visual Model Editor

    Allows editing and creation of 3D objects. Main features:

    • Creation and modification of 3D objects for simulation areas
    • Creation and modification of the visual components of a ship model
    • Convenient adjustment of object behavior logic, such as detailing levels and reaction to illumination conditions
    • Convenient adjustment of the visual ship model parameters, such as signal states, radars’ properties and so on
    • Integration with Autodesk™ 3ds Max® for editing objects geometry and texturing.
