SolidWorks MBD will be released during Q1 of 2015 – more than likely during the SolidWorks World Conference which takes place in Phoenix from February 8 – 11.
SolidWorks Model Based Definition is an integrated drawing-less manufacturing solution for SolidWorks. It helps companies define, organize, and publish 3D Product and Manufacturing Information (PMI), including 3D model data in industry-standard file formats. Unlike traditional 2D drawings, SolidWorks MBD guides the manufacturing process directly in 3D, which streamlines production, cuts cycle time, reduces errors, and helps compliance with industry standards.
