For Better Product Quality, Explore MBD [Interview]

If you’re an engineer or designer, you’ve probably already heard about model-based definition (MBD), the practice of adding non-geometric engineering information to a 3D model. (Traditionally, that data is added to a 2D drawing.) Intuitively, it makes sense to keep everything in one place. But are the benefits worth the effort of changing the way... Continue Reading →

Combination States and Model-Based Definition (MBD)

MBD is based on Y14.41-2003 Digital Product Definition Data Practices that establishes standards and requirements for tolerances, dimensional data, and other digital design annotations on 3D solid models.  Combination States are important in the MBD context as they facilitate the presentation of model and the related annotations. Combination States in Creo Parametric In Creo Parametric,... Continue Reading →

Model Based Definition (MBD) and YOU

The momentum is building for Model-Based Definition (MBD). Get ready now. MBD is a process which results in a 3D CAD model that is the complete product definition. All the information about your product lives in a fully-detailed, documented 3D model accessible to everyone from engineering to package design. Sounds good, but what does it... Continue Reading →

GD&T Advisor for MBD

In a drawing centric world, the non-geometric attributes (GD&T) that are required to manufacture the products, such as dimensions, tolerances, datums, etc., are on the 2D Drawing. However, in an MBD world this non-geometric information, that is critical for downstream Manufacturing and Inspection processes, must be contained within the model in a clear and un-ambiguous...
