SOLIDWORKS MBD Can Help Your Manufacturing Team Avoid Costly Errors

Article by Vicky Guignard updated August 11, 2017


Does your 2D drawing on the shop floor match your 3D models? Can you easily communicate your designs and products with the manufacturing team, service team, suppliers, dealers, and customers? If you are simply not satisfied with either of your answers to these questions, then maybe it is time to look at going paperless. This is where SOLIDWORKS MBD can help!



PMI data can quickly get cumbersome on a standard 2D drawing and information can be missed or misinterpreted on the shop floor. With SOLIDWORKS MBD, you can include all your product manufacturing information in clean 3D views and then be represented in  a 3D PDF, making it easy for the manufacturer to find the information needed to machine your product.

MBD is an add-in to SOLIDWORKS, therefore it is a fully integrated and a simple to learn solution.
