Norden Ship Design House Optimizes Software Budgets with ZWCAD

Quick Link


Norden Ship Design House, established in 2006 in Turkey, has been a major provider of design, engineering, and consultancy services to ship owners, shipyards, and other marine-related companies, as well as defence, military, and private individuals. Norden's approach has always been to be innovative, cost-effective, and client-oriented. The company has successfully completed over 50 unique new ship designs that cater to specific project requirements.

When Norden first obtained their ZWCAD licenses in 2009, they were among the pioneering companies in Turkey to adopt this software. Their decision was driven by ZWCAD's full compatibility with other CAD programs, flexibility, and an unbeatable price-to-benefit ratio, which ensures many years of productive user experience.

Familiar Experience: Norden's Swift Adaptation to ZWCAD

ZWCAD delivers an intuitively familiar user experience, remarkably akin to the CAD software previously used by Norden. This similarity ensures a seamless transition for the design team, enabling them to maintain productivity on this new platform.

Emre ÇELİKTEL, Naval Architect & Marine Engineer at Norden Ship Design House, remarked, "Our design team can quickly adapt to ZWCAD because it offers a user experience similar to other CAD software. This allows our processes to proceed smoothly without any loss in our work efficiency."

The compatibility of ZWCAD with various CAD software is another critical element contributing to this seamless transition. Norden can effortlessly work with existing files and projects, eliminating the necessity for time-consuming data conversion or file format modifications.
