This work seeks to continue the research started in 2017 about the triangle boat type, based on the traditional models of the municipality of Icapuí in Ceará / Brazil. The intention is to expand and refine the research, analyzing the construction process and the typology of the boats. For this, it is proposed to define a typology and a shape grammar of the boats and implement, in a digitally-based system, a formalized language. The methodology adopted in this work starts from a knowledge

The documentation approach using parametric modeling offers great contributions to the memory and cultural heritage preservation, since an algorithmic description is able to retain information pertaining to both the material and immaterial part of the artifact.
