Model Based Definition (MBD) is becoming more and more prevalent in today's designs. Through SOLIDWORKS MBD and the DimXpert tool, we can add our dimension and tolerance data directly to the 3D model, helping to eliminate the need for 2D drawings, while more effectively communicating our designs. Keep reading to learn how SOLIDWORKS Inspection 2018 now allows us to utilize this information to create first article inspection reports right from the 3D model.

SOLIDWORKS makes it easy for engineers to design in 3D. But once the design is complete, we have to manufacture the parts, ensure they meet quality standards and assemble the product. Assembly fixtures and molds need to be designed, assembly guides have to be created for the manufacturing floor and parts have to be checked against the engineering drawings.
At this critical stage in the delivery of products to the consumer, delays and errors can be costly. SOLIDWORKS has grown beyond the realm of product design to offer many tools to help streamline these processes.
