The Nemo toolkit for naval architects and marine engineers working on Rhino 3D modeling software was launched commercially in early 2021. But it was born from a student work, nurtured along the professional career of its initiator Mathieu Venot.

“During my internship project in a research laboratory at Ensta Bretagne, I had to work on improving a strength calculation code. I needed a bridge between the Rhino software on which we had the hull files and the needs for the code. So I worked on tools to automatically retrieve the hull characteristics. Since then, I have joined the naval architecture firm L2O Naval. But I have continued to work on this toolbox for automating tasks, especially those that we encountered with our colleagues for the structure or the resistance to forward movement”. Read on.
