Product Development using 3D CAD Design

    Model Based Definition (MBD) with Creo

Model Based Definition (MBD) with Creo

Model-Based Definition (MBD) is an emerging approach to engineering that holds great promise for addressing the increasing complexity of systems, while reducing the time, cost, and risk to develop and deliver these systems.

Model-Based Definition includes creating annotated 3D models that fully define the product in a manner that can be communicated and used effectively by all downstream customers without the need for 2D drawings. This 3D model becomes the single source of truth that is exchanged with the downstream organizations such as quality, inspection, manufacturing, procurement and others to interrogate, analyze, build and inspect the product. Information that is added to models in addition to geometry are Dimensions and Tolerances (GD&T), symbols and text notes.

Who is it for? 

This webinar is aimed for both those who are interested in starting work with MBD but can also fit those who did not know what MBD meant before.
An important factor is that you use (or intend to) Creo and Windchill to create product information.

Why participate, what value will you gain

  • An introduction to Model Based Definition, MBD
  • MBD Challenges and opportunities
  • How to use Creo Parametric to create annotated 3D models.
