Model Based Definition

What is SOLIDWORKS MBD used for?
Adding manufacturing information directly to 3D models
SOLIDWORKS MBD is an integrated drawingless manufacturing solution for SOLIDWORKS. It helps companies define, organise, and publish 3D Product Manufacturing Information including 3D model data in industry standard file formats such as 3D PDF and eDrawings.

Unlike traditional 2D drawings, 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.

Define PMI directly in 3D

Define PMI directly in 3D and avoid expensive, time-consuming, and risky 2D drawing detour. 3D PMI also helps speed up communication, cut quoting time, and reduce errors due to its 3D data interrogation, interactivity, and rich Meta properties.
Clean and Structured 3D Presentation

Beyond 3D PMI Definition, SOLIDWORKS MBD helps organise 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.
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 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

MBD helps comply with the predominant industry standards, such as ASME Y14.41, Military-Standard-31000A, ISO 16792, and so on. This compliance gives you the competitive advantages to win more contracts and deliver projects to strict requirements, on time and on budget.
Share & Archive intelligent & intuitive 3D data

Share and archive intuitive 3D data, PMI, views, and Meta properties, so that you don’t have to waste time in re-modeling based on traditional 2D Drawings. MBD seamlessly integrates with SOLIDWORKS 2D Drawings. The PMI and Views created in 3D are readily available for reuse in 2D, which can save you time and fit well into existing processes.
