Key Benefits

Streamline Production with Drawingless Manufacturing

  • Reduce quality issues often caused by misinterpretations of 2D drawings
  • Eliminate the use of excessive callouts with easy-to-read 3D Views, Annotations, and BOM Tables
  • Share files with non-CAD users by simply exporting files to 3D PDF or eDrawings
  • Integrate with current paper-based processes by utilizing printouts
  • Comply with the requirements of the Department of Defense’s Military Standard-31000A – the expectations of model-based deliverables

Capabilities

Push the Limit with a "Drawingless Shop Floor"

DEFINE PMI DIRECTLY IN 3D

Eliminate time-consuming, expensive, and risky 2D drawing detours for good. MBD defines PMI directly in 3D, helping speed up communication, cut quoting time, and reduce errors with its interrogation, interactivity, and rich Meta properties.

CLEAN AND STRUCTURED 3D PRESENTATION

Organize rich data into clean and structured 3D presentations with different views and display settings. Intelligently show and hide 3D annotations while you rotate the model, giving extra clarity while respecting all the critical-to-function annotations.

CUSTOMIZE 3D OUTPUT TEMPLATES

Build layouts, insert company or group logos, position 3D View ports and thumbnails, edit text descriptions, embed Meta property links, and add tables in one familiar program, SOLIDWORKS.

EASY 3D OUTPUT AND DISTRIBUTION

Publish widely accepted file formats, such as eDrawings and 3D PDF, according to the predefined or customized template. eDrawings files can be opened in a free eDrawings Viewer, and 3D PDF can be viewed in a free Adobe Reader which is installed on 93% of internet-connected machines tools.

COMPLY WITH INDUSTRY STANDARDS

Comply with predominant industry standards such as ASME Y14.41, Military-Standard-31000A, ISO 16792, and more.  Gain the confidence to deliver projects with strict requirements on time and within budget.

SHARE AND ARCHIVE INTELLIGENT AND INTUITIVE 3D DATA

Avoid remodeling based on traditional 2D drawings by sharing and archiving 3D data, including the models, PMI, views, and Meta properties. Upgrade legacy product configurations to new models quickly and design tooling and fixtures easier.

What People Are Saying

In the past 20 years, all our CAD investments (either 2D or 3D) were just to make a faster and better 2D drawing at the end of the day. Is that good enough? Is that all we can do? Can’t we do better?
