Article by Sanja Srzic created/updated March 13, 2017

The question of installing SOLIDWORKS MBD is quite common after our customers have purchased a license.

Installing SOLIDWORKS MDB

SOLIDWORKS MBD license is not included in any of the three SOLIDWORKS license types (Standard, Professional or Premiun).  It is installed using the SOLIDWORKS Installation Manager.  In the Serial Number dialog, shown below, select SOLIDWORKS MBD and enter your serial number.  This is the only entry required – SOLIDWORKS MBD is not listed in the next Product Selection dialog.

Activating SOLIDWORKS MBD

SOLIDWORKS MBD is not listed in Tools > Add Ins like other SOLIDWORKS Add-ins.  However, when it is installed, the MBD toolbar should automatically become active.

If you don’t see the MBD menu listed then right-click on a CommandManager tab and select SOLIDWORKS MBD from the shortcut menu
