SOLIDWORKS MBD Define, organize, and publish 3D annotations, including 3D model data in industry-standard file formats. 

SOLIDWORKS Model-Based Definition (MBD) is a model-based application that reduces costs thanks to unambiguous, integrated 3D annotations. 

Unlike 2D drawings, SOLIDWORKS MBD defines, organizes, and publishes annotations directly into the 3D data. 

This helps automate downstream manufacturing processes such as tolerance analysis, machining, and inspections. 

SOLIDWORKS MBD is an integrated drawing less manufacturing solution for SOLIDWORKS. 

It helps companies define, organize, and publish 3D Product Manufacturing Information (PMI) including 3D model data in industry-standard file formats such as eDrawings® and 3D PDF.

Unlike traditional 2D drawings, SOLIDWORKS MBD guides the manufacturing process directly in 3D, which helps streamline production, cut cycle time, reduce errors, and support industry standards such as Military-Standard-31000A, ASME Y14.41, ISO 16792, and DIN ISO 16792.
