Define, organize, and publish 3D annotations in industry-standard file formats with SOLIDWORKS Model-Based Definition (MBD). Communicate clear and effective 3D data with custom publishing templates for manufacturing that seamlessly include 3D dimensions, notes, BOMs, and more.

The MBD Advantages

  • While product developers and design engineers have embraced 3D design, 2D drawings have remained the primary means for communicating PMI. SOLIDWORKS MBD is the first complete, integrated paperless manufacturing solution, providing the time, cost, and quality benefits of 3D to documentation and production.  
  • SOLIDWORKS MBD lets you define and organize 3D dimensions, tolerances, datums, notes, Bills of Material (BOMs), and other annotations.  
  • Eliminate time-to-market delays. SOLIDWORKS MBD adds clarity to your manufacturing communication with 3D integrated specifications, which can also drive downstream applications automatically, such as CAM and CMM programming. SOLIDWORKS MBD enables 3D annotations beyond geometry-based programming. 
  • Customize publishing templates for manufacturing, such as Part or Assembly Specifications and Request for Quote (RFQ). You can also publish to widely accepted formats, such as eDrawings®, STEP 242, and 3D PDF for clear 3D communications.
