SOLIDWORKS MBD (Model Based Definition) is an integrated drawing-less manufacturing solution for SOLIDWORKS 3D design software. SOLIDWORKS MBD guides the manufacturing process directly in 3D. You can define, organize, and publish 3D PMI, including 3D model data, in industry-standard file formats (such as SOLIDWORKS files, eDrawings®, 3D PDF, and STEP 242). Companies embracing model-based definition methodologies report savings from reduced manufacturing errors, decreased scrap and rework costs, and lower procurement costs for purchased parts.

SOLIDWORKS MBD puts data within the SOLIDWORKS 3D environment, such as product models, dimensions, geometric tolerances, surface finishes, welding symbols, BOMs, callouts, tables, notes, meta properties, and other annotations. Because all the information needed to guide the operation is integrated with the 3D models, traditional 2D drawings are no longer needed. The intuitive, interactive 3D PMI from SOLIDWORKS MBD serves multiple operational uses and helps groups across the operation, such as design, procurement, fabrication, assembly, quality, sales, marketing, clients, and suppliers.

Benefits of SOLIDWORKS MBD Software

  • Cuts tooling and fabrication costs.
  • Removes the time required to clean up 2D drawings.
  • Reduces time required to create and maintain manufacturing documentation.
  • Reduces the number of annotations and dimensions.
  • Reduces engineering changes.
  • Streamlines the ECO process.
  • Reduces the number of files for sign-off.
  • Reduces errors.
  • Removes model-to-drawing discrepancy.
  • Manipulates the 3D model directly for clarity.
  • Cuts scrap and rework.
  • Complies with emerging industry standards
  • Fits into a company’s and/or supply chain’s existing processes seamlessly.

I. Exports widely accepted industry formats, including 3D PDF, eDrawings, and SOLIDWORKS files.
II. SOLIDWORKS reads DWG files into sketches or 2D Drawings so that users can build 3D models based on legacy data.
