SOLIDWORKS MBD (Model Based Definition) is an integrated drawingless manufacturing solution for SOLIDWORKS.
It helps companies define, organise, and publish 3D Product Manufacturing Information (PMI) including 3D model data in industry standard file formats such as eDrawings© and 3D PDF.
Unlike traditional 2D drawings, SOLIDWORKS MBD guides the manufacturing process directly in 3D, which helps streamline production, cut cycle time, reduce errors, and support industry standards such as Military-Standard-31000A, ASME Y14.41, ISO 16792, and DIN ISO 16792.
Backed by the unrivalled support of Australia and New Zealand’s largest team of Certified SOLIDWORKS engineers, SOLIDWORKS MBD features include:
> Define PMI directly in 3D: SOLIDWORKS MBD defines PMI directly in 3D, avoiding the expensive, time-consuming, and risky 2D drawing detour, which can save up to one-third of the total engineering dollars
> Clean and structured 3D presentation: SOLIDWORKS MBD helps organise the rich data into clean and structured 3D presentations with different views and display settings
> Customise 3D output templates: serve multiple deliverables and departments by customising the 3D Output Templates. You can build the layout, insert company or group logo, position the 3D View port and thumbnails, edit the text descriptions, embed Meta property links, and add tables
> Easy 3D output and distribution: SOLIDWORKS MBD publishes widely accepted file formats such as eDrawings® and 3D PDF according to the predefined or customised templates
> Comply with industry standards: gives you the competitive advantages to win more contracts and deliver projects to strict requirements, on time and on budget
> Share and archive intelligent and intuitive 3D data: share and archive intuitive 3D data, including the models, PMI, views, and Meta properties, so that you and your suppliers don’t have to waste time in re-modeling based on traditional 2D Drawings
Reduce manufacturing errors, decrease scrap and rework costs, and lower procurement costs for purchased parts with SOLIDWORKS MBD.
