SOLIDWORKS INSPECTION

SOLIDWORKS INSPECTION

Minimize the time needed to produce documents for review, helping to remove product mistakes, increase consistency and reduce business time.

Automate Your Inspection Documentation

Material and Manufacturing Information (PMI) automates the ballooning of product sketches and 3D data with inspection add-in. SOLIDWORKS Inspection streamlines the production of industry-standard inspection records, reducing the time taken to log inspection measurements.

SOLIDWORKS MBD

SOLIDWORKS MBD

Define, compile, and distribute 3D metadata in industry-standard file formats like 3D model info.

Why Choose SOLIDWORKS MBD?

Model-Based Description (MBD) helps you to describe and arrange 3D measurements, tolerances, details, observations, Bills of Material  (BOMs) and other annotations; configure manufacturing models such as Component or Assembly Requirements, Quote Request (RFQ) and Incoming Inspection Reports. You may also publish for direct 3D communications to generally agreed formats, such as eDrawings, Stage 242 and 3D PDF.

Several handy features have been included in each SOLIDWORKS Basic seat for smoother adoptions of the model-based activities. With SOLIDWORKS Standard, you can annotate a 3D component or assembly, arrange the 3D descriptions with views of annotations and interact all directly in 3D in eDrawings.

Define 3D Annotations

SOLIDWORKS MBD starts with defining feature-based annotations in Parts and Assemblies (DimXpert) and import 3D annotations for more efficient design from can CAD formats.

Organize 3D Annotations

When the amount of 3D annotations becomes too high, you can automatically show and remove annotations as a layout rotates, catch detailed settings with visual bookmark-like 3D views, compare 3D annotation discrepancies between revisions to capture small yet important variations, and reuse 3D views in 2D drawings where necessary.

Publish 3D Data with Annotations and Views

SOLIDWORKS MBD allows direct 3D communications. The app can configure models, manage accuracies and PDF sizes, publish BOM tables and annotations, add several files while printing, build and download STEP242 files, if you want 3D PDFs. SOLIDWORKS MBD can often use software-readable annotations to generate eDrawings or STEP 242.

Minimize Scrap and Rework

Unlike miscommunications in 2D drawings and manufacturing based on dated 2D drawings, SOLIDWORKS MBD facilitates 3D engineering communication with integrated 3D specifications, greater clarity, reduced ambiguity, and a shorter update path.

Eliminate Time-to-market Delays

SOLIDWORKS MBD adds clarity in 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.

Reduce Service Costs

SOLIDWORKS MBD defines and organizes intuitive, model-integrated 3D specifications which shorten the learning curve. The high quality Phase 242 and 3D PDF production complies with the normal Long Term Archival and Retrieval (LOTAR).

SOLIDWORKS eDRAWING

SOLIDWORKS eDRAWING

Define, compile, and distribute 3D metadata in industry-standard file formats like 3D model info.

Why Choose SOLIDWORKS eDrawings?

EDrawings ® is the leading 2D, 3D and AR / VR collaboration resource for production partners and future opportunities and clients in the design phase. eDrawings allows us to speed up their design processes by providing a rich interactive resource collection, collaborating with consistency and accuracy to get to market quicker. CAD and non-CAD users will exchange, interrogate, build mark-ups and then distribute these markups to speed up the whole design cycle.

The eDrawings' Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) technologies expand their application to design teams and consumers through simulated product assessments. AR / VR features are included in advanced and smartphone eDrawings models of windows desktops
