Every SOLIDWORKS user has a basic understanding of how file references work. We typically make a part then create a drawing that shows views of this part. When creating the views on the drawing, what is really happening is the drawing views are looking at the actual part file and displaying it in a way that is based on our view settings. We say that the drawing references the part file.

We live in a 3D world, so doesn't it make sense that we design in a 3D world? One would think, but for some reason we continue to communicate the same way we have for over 100 years, in a 2D drawing. Luckily there is an opportunity to take that next step toward communicating Product Manufacturing Information. That step is Model-Based Definition.
