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.

SOLIDWORKS Model-Based Definition (MBD) 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.
