Model-Based Definition (MBD) is a journey. Defining product and manufacturing information (PMI) on 3D models rather than 2D drawings is just a start. After that, it’s vital to serve the downstream processes such as inspection, fabrication, and suppliers, in an organized, consumable and actionable fashion. Regardless of MBD or 2D drawings, the functional purpose is to communicate.

Have you ever thought about consolidating your product design on SOLIDWORKS, but didn’t because you were intimidated by the idea of migrating all your legacy design data? After all your company has spent a considerable amount—of both money and manhours—creating an enormous amount of product designs so the thought of having to move all of them to a new CAD system, like SOLIDWORKS, can seem overwhelming. So first off, you probably wouldn’t have to migrate as much of that data as you might think.

If you are maker, tinkerer, hobbyist or an inventor, chances are you are part of or have heard about FabLab. If you are still curious, a Fab Lab is a community space that provides its members—makers and hobbyists—with off-the-shelf, industrial-grade fabrication tools such as laser cutters, milling machines, scanners, 3D printers and software design tools. It lets them translate their ideas into real products and sometimes create products yet to be envisioned by the established manufacturer. With
