I published a 3D PDF of attached part by using my own template. It has multiple viewports to resemble a 2D drawing: I can't understand why 2 of these views have gray background while in my SOLIDWORKS model the background is white.

Is it possible to output a STEP AP242 file containing multiple 3DViews? Say I've got a .SLDPRT with annotations/tolerances on it in several different 3D Views.

maybe I am missing something but I have not been able to find a way to fill the pdf data card in EPDM from the model upon publish. I would prefer to keep our system to a single point of entry and I think that should include the data card information in the pdf as well. any ideas would be great.

hello, I am currently evaluating SolidWorks MBD for use within our company. I was trying to edit the pdf templates to accept configuration specific custom properties as all of our parts and assemblies have their information filled in in the configuration specific custom properties, this allows us to have consistency across our system and work best with SolidWorks composer as it treats them differently. any help would be appreciated as we would like to switch to the MBD module but if it does not

I have a problem with Adobe Reader visualizing MBD and the problem is that I can’t see the texts on it until I select it. It’s very rare cause some friends can see it. For example, in this picture should be more text but only is seeing what is selected.

one of the undisputed advantaged of MBD processes is ability to automatically create CAM programs by reading PMI on the 3D model. The only cam I'm aware of that has this functionality is CAMWorks.

following Oboe's idea on MBD in seconds YouTube playlist, I'm proposing to put short post here to spread MBD culture and benefits. Let's call these posts MBD in seconds to keep consistent with the YouTube playlist.

I know this may seem like an odd question... but it might come into play. In the earlier days (pre-MBD) it was the original drawing/drawing representation that we were updating. Now with MBD, we will be publishing a *new* PDF every time. Granted it will be based on the same model each time, but the PDF will be new.

I have received my acceptance notice for a SWW2107 presentation on MBD. It will be a follow up to last years "Oh the Trauma of MBD" if there is an area in particular you would like to see. Please let me know and I will do my best to include it.

I'm opening this thread to discuss MBD application on a real use case. A typical European potential customer that is really interested on going drawingless and understood the benefits.

I am trying to make custom templates and am having a problem that when the PDFs are published the tables fill with the default drawing background color. The attached is a 3D PDF with the default SW title block table as reference. I have tried with several different default and custom tables; they all fill the table with the same color.

When creating custom templates in MBD where I have multiple independent view ports, I would like to be able to assign a specific view to each different view port. I am only allowed to to set one view port as independent which then sets all my view ports to the same view. It sure would be great to have the ability to assign multiple independent view ports based on how many view ports are in my template.

3D PDF is a great tool for those who might not have SOLIDWORKS to view the models. This video will show you how to view 3D PDFs using Adobe Reader, which is a free program.

Great tricks Oboe ! Would it be possible for you to attach that file to this post so that we can use it for some practice with dimensioning section views ?
