SOLIDWORKS MBD

Define, Organize, and Publish 3D Product Manufacturing Information (PMI)

What is SOLIDWORKS MBD?

SOLIDWORKS MBD (Model Based Definition) is an integrated drawingless manufacturing solution for SOLIDWORKS that helps define, organize, and publish 3D Product Manufacturing Information (PMI) including 3D model data in industry-standard file formats. 

SOLIDWORKS MBD guides the manufacturing process directly in 3D instead of using traditional 2D drawings, which helps streamline production, cut cycle time, reduce errors, and support industry standards.

Define 3d PMI

Define 3D Product Manufacturing Information (PMI) such as dimensions, tolerances, model data, surface finish, weld symbols, Bill of Materials (BOM), tables, notes, and other annotations.

PUBLISH 3d PDF DRAWINGS

Publish 3D data and PMI in industry-standard file formats, such as 3D PDF and eDrawings.

Organize 3d PMI

Organize 3D PMI along with the 3D models in a clean, structured, and easy-to-search fashion.

SUPPORTED INDUSTRY STANDARDS

Support industry standards, such as Military-Standard-31000A, ASME Y14.41, ISO 16792, and DIN ISO 16792.

CustomizeD Output Templates

Customize 3D output templates for multiple deliverables [such as engineering drawings and request for quote (RFQ)], and departments [such as Operations, Manufacturing, QA, and Procurement].

SHARED 3D DATA

Share and archive 3D data to minimize time spent re-modeling or manipulating 2D drawings.

CREATE 3D PMI SEAMLESSLY

See how SOLIDWORKS MBD can be used to quickly create accurate 3D Product Manufacturing Information that can replace or supplement typical 2D Manufacturing Drawings.

SHARE YOUR FILES

Learn how to use SOLIDWORKS MBD to add 3D PMI to standard file formats (eDrawings, 3D PDF, Step), to easily share Product Manufacturing Information throughout your organization and supply network.
