A passenger ferry was designed by a student team from the Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering Schools, for both their final project and the Puget Sound. The vessel, named Wahoo, is 57 meters long, 18 meters wide, and seats 350 passengers with a top speed of 45 knots. The students modeled the ferry in Rhinoceros and worked with the UM3D Lab to print the model in plaster for presentation purposes. They also exported VRML for visualization in the MIDEN, allowing them to explore the ferry. Although Wahoo is much larger than the MIDEN, the students were able to see it in immersive stereo at full scale, allowing them to directly observe and evaluate sizes and clearances.
The engine room was an especially detailed design. The students obtained the real marine engine model from MTU Detroit Diesel (in STP format) and placed three instances of it in their vessel.
