Her day is jam-packed with meetings with barely any time to wolf down lunch, let alone check in on the kids to ensure they’re actually involved in their virtual schooling. The only things […]
We’re pleased to share the following new content in OSCAR: How to Annotate a Feature of Size with a True Position Tolerance in SOLIDWORKS Annotating a Feature of Size with a True Position tolerance is essential to good MBD and GD&T. Let our CAD Coach talk you through applying this important element in SOLIDWORKS. How […]
“What we’re doing is organizing consistent messaging around Model-Based Definition that can be pragmatically applied today.” Jennifer Herron “I wanted to bring Model-Based Definition within reach – and that means for anyone. Not only big, global companies, but also the smaller supply chains who are building all the parts and assemblies for those large global […]
In most cases, a “Model-Based Enterprise” is going to include multiple CAD platforms. You could be a large corporation that uses multiple CAD applications or a smaller company that only uses one but has suppliers that use other CAD platforms. This reality means CAD interoperability challenges cannot be ignored. While each CAD system has strengths and weaknesses, the big five are capable of: modeling geometry, creating 3D annotations, defining attributes (metadata), and creating “presentation states.” We […]
