Streamline operations and accelerate production with SOLIDWORKS MBD.
SOLIDWORKS MBD defines PMI directly in 3D and avoiding the expensive, time-consuming, and risky 2D drawing detour, which can save up to one-third of the total engineering dollars. 3D PMI also helps speed up communication, cut quoting time, and reduce errors thanks to its 3D data interrogation, interactivity, and rich Meta properties.
Beyond 3D PMI Definition, SOLIDWORKS MBD helps organize the rich data into clean and structured 3D presentations with different views and display settings. It can even intelligently show and hide 3D annotations while you rotate the model to give you extra clarity while respecting all the critical-to-function annotations. Messy display? Tedious navigation? Missing annotations? Problems solved!
Serve multiple deliverables and departments by customizing 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. SOLIDWORKS MBD covers them all. Once they are set up, these templates will serve as internal and external process guidelines for all departments, such as Manufacturing, Operations, QA, and Procurement on multiple deliverables, such as engineering drawings, Request for Quote (RFQ), inspection report, and work instructions. In addition, SOLIDWORKS MBD delivers a comprehensive set of predefined templates to use out of the box.
