Note: This will be a dynamic agenda between now and the date of the event as speakers and topics are identified.

3D CIC focuses on 3D CAD collaboration and interoperability for the entire product lifecycle. Trust Digital is the 2020 theme, showcasing organizations that have evolved to trusting digital: tracking their product’s condition digitally at each stage of the product lifecycle. Product pedigree is achieved through recording not just how we design a product, but how we make it, measure it, report it, and improve it. 

“Really one of the best yearly events around for anyone trying to improve MBD, MBE, Quality, Interoperability, and more!”

“Highly knowledgeable people with a ‘can do’ attitude around implementation.”

“I would recommend because it’s CAD software vendor agnostic.”

“MBD and MBE focused conference.  Learn from practitioners and gain insights.”



GD&T for MBD Master Class at 3D CIC

Monday, October 12, 2020
1:00-5:00 pm
Level 1 and Level 2

Unit 1: 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’? ASME Y14.5 is a large document of words and pictures that some may struggle to interpret for pragmatic application. However, the 2009 and now the 2018 revision have clarified geometric tolerancing application. This is great for MBD! The transition from plus/minus tolerancing into structuring datum features into an established coordinate system and profile tolerances impact us by providing clarity of the design requirements. 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 Geometric Tolerancing Principles 
  • Why plus/minus tolerancing does not work for tolerance stackups 
  • How MBD heightens our awareness of geometric tolerancing 

Unit 2: A More Functional Datum Reference Frame

Learn the importance of selecting Datum Features through examples. Simpler and more functional Datum Reference Frames are the key to better part control. Separate requirements for better Design, Manufacturing, and Inspection documentation. 


  • A Datum Reference Frame created from Actual Datum Features 
  • Expanding from One Drawing to Three Discrete Plans 
  • Hub Example: Design Drawing vs. Manufacturing and Inspection Plans
