Remember when Art Patrick had that cruise ship modeled in Solid Edge to show how it handled large assemblies? Is there a link to any screenshots, presentations, or fly thru videos of that assembly? I want to point an AutoCAD user to Solid Edge. The Autocad user happens to be a yacht builder.
I remember that one......but have only found one link so far. [it makes an appearance in the SEU14 presentation doc - pg23] Can't recall where there was more about it....a blog post, or a knowledge base entry....or just as a comment in another post.

Art, HELP... (Please and Thank you!)
Scott, you might be better off hooking them up with a yacht builder. Cruise ships are a WHOLE different beast. For yachts Solid Edge has a pile of references. I personally visited Hinckley http://www.hinckleyyachts.com/ this past summer and they do amazing work. (their yachts start at $495K if you have that handy!).
Cruise ships is a different beast. I visited STX (Solid Edge user) a few years back -- they build the largest cruise ships in the world. The one they had in dry dock being built was 14 (or was it 19?)floors. It is comprised of MILLIONS of parts - and they consider an air conditioner a part! So its a whole nuther thing altogether.
Jason, who chimed into the thread is with LMGI and they have a couple (including Hinckley) up in their neck of the woods, so he might be a good resource.
Not related to yachts at all, but back when I worked at Robbins, we had a few assemblies animated that were done in SE. Those are large assemblies too if you are just trying to show how well SE manages large assemblies.
Here is a link to the one I helped with. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J0YqpZCoYEQ
If you look up Robbins TBM youtube channel, you will find a few others and even some live time lapse of assembly of the machines. My favorite : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Bw0qARkOnI
