MBD Using Modern GD&T
For good MBD, you need proper GD&T. Drawings are okay, but MBD is better. If you've dipped your toes into Model-Based Definition, then you know the devil is in the details. GD&T and MBD experts will guide you through the What, Why, and How of Model-Based Definition and the right way to apply GD&T for MBD.
You Will Learn:
The What, Why, and How of Model-Based Definition, and GD&T the Right Way for Model-Based Definition - how to implement the latest offerings of the ASME Y14.5-2009 standard.
What is MBD/MBE?
MBD. DPD. MBE. TDP. Confused already? We will start with basic nomenclature to ground everyone’s language around this topic, to facilitate meaningful discussion throughout the course.
- Model-Based Definition and Model-Based Enterprise definitions
- MBD’s four parts
- MBD classification levels
- What it means to leverage a closed loop digital manufacturing technique
Not Your Grandparents’ GD&T (aka GD&T for the Modern World)
You may be familiar with GD&T, but are you stuck in the ‘olden times’? The tolerancing definitions in ASME Y14.5 haven’t changed much in recent years, but the way we apply geometric tolerancing has improved! The move away from plus/minus tolerancing into full position and profile tolerances on features is needed for a simpler and clearer design intent. Join us in the modern age to learn how to implement the latest methods of using the GD&T standards. We’ll demonstrate unambiguous product definition with GD&T through a variety of examples.
- Quick review of GD&T principles
- Why plus/minus tolerancing cannot be trusted
- Full GD&T is necessary for better MBD
Understand the purpose and benefits of MBE for organizations leveraging 3D annotated models. Spoiler: MBE is not one size fits all.
- Model-based philosophies
- Purpose of drawings and MBD/MBE
- Standards adoption – why and which ones
- Engineering benefits
- Enterprise-wide business value
- ROI opportunity
Getting Started with MBD
Learn what it takes to move MBE forward. Leverage your rich 3D data by understanding how to bundle data together for Design, Manufacturing, and Inspection.
- Understand how to apply ASME Y14.41.1 constructs for “complete” digital product definition.
- Learn a methodical method for applying MBD in any 3D CAD system.
A More Functional Datum Reference Frame
Learn the differences between Datums and Datum Features through examples. Simpler and more functional Datum Reference Frames are the key to better part control. Separate our requirements for better Design, Manufacturing, and Inspection documentation.
- Datum Reference Frame created from actual Datum Features
- Expanding from one drawing to three plans
- G&T for Design (modeling), Manufacturing (work instructions), and Inspection (plans)
Data Packages: Flavors, Buckets, and Bundles
Understand the importance and functionality of Data Packages throughout the product lifecycle to capture Design, Manufacturing, and Quality (Inspection) intent. Expand Product Information into a unique 3-plan system.
- Technical Data Package components
- Data Package interoperability
- Game changing 3D PDFs
BYO Laptop MBD
Bring your own laptop to build MBD in your preferred 3D CAD software program, using examples. Our experts will guide the way.
GT (No D) Exercises for MBD
Putting pencil to paper is the best way to learn proper GT (and we don’t mean D) for MBD. Work through pump assembly examples together, both on paper and using 3D CAD software, with the focus on functional design requirements.
