SOLIDWORKS MBD: Drawingless Vs. Paperless

SOLIDWORKS MBD Drawingless Vs. Paperless Whitepaper

With the launch of SOLIDWORKS Model Based Definition (MBD) 2015, I’ve heard lots of enthusiastic feedback from multiple job functions across the entire production cycle. For example, a manufacturing engineer pointed out: “I see MBD as a Poka-yoke (mistake proofing) opportunity in the elimination of 2D files by using the native model. I currently have an issue where I need to update over 200 drawings for tooling. Implementation of MBD would have saved considerable time and expense.”
