Get past the limitations of 2D drawings with MBD

As 3D design becomes more prevalent, the limitations of traditional 2D drawings become more apparent—expensive and time-consuming to create and maintain; prone to mismatch with the 3D model (leading to massive production waste); not compliant with widely accepted and mandated industry standards.

Communicating critical information about your model is key for others to review the design. Whether it is to review and make design changes or review the model for manufacturing on the shop floor having total control over the information is now easier than ever. For example, with sheet metal, MBD shows all the bend information either directly on the model’s flat pattern or in a tabular display. New to 2019 you can capture all manufacturing information in event table. If intellectual property is your concern when sharing documents new security settings lets you protect and control the information that is released when you create your 3D PDF document. Eliminate the need for standard 2D drawings and look into SOLIDWORKS 2019 MBD to improve your business processes.



SOLIDWORKS® MBD (Model Based Definition) is an integrated drawingless manufacturing solution for SOLIDWORKS 3D design software.

You can communicate product and manufacturing information (PMI) directly in 3D, bypassing time-consuming 2D processes, and eliminating potential problems.
