MBD CAD User Groups

We received great feedback in 2016 about the coordination of 3D CIC with CAD user groups focused on Model-Based Definition/Enterprise. The SOLIDWORKS MBD User Group and PTC/USER MBE Technical Committee will again be offered. New for 2017 will be an NX MBD user group.

NX MBD User Group [$80 early / $95 regular]

NX users are invited to attend this new event for sharing MBD best practices and lessons learned during an open technical discussion facilitated by Jennifer Herron of Action Engineering. The agenda and presenters will be finalized closer to the event, with anticipated focus areas including:

  • Annotating NX models (PMI)
  • Publishing to “neutral” formats
  • Data management for NX
  • Getting information to the shop floor
  • Model-based work instructions

The NX MBD User Group will meet at Table Mountain Inn on the morning (8:00 am to 12:00 pm) of Monday, October 2, 2017. Then come back later in the day for networking! All CAD user group participants and 3D CIC attendees are invited to attend the CAD & Cocktails happy hour at 5:30 pm at Table Mountain Inn on Monday, October 2, 2017.

Registration is open to anyone with an interest in MBD for NX. Contact Jennifer Herron with questions or topic suggestions.

SOLIDWORKS MBD User Group [$80 early / $95 regular]

SOLIDWORKS users are invited to learn and share MBD best practices and lessons learned during an open technical discussion facilitated by Jennifer Herron of Action Engineering. The agenda and presenters will be finalized closer to the event, with anticipated focus areas including:

  • Annotating SOLIDWORKS models (DimXpert)
  • Publishing to “neutral” formats
  • Data management for SOLIDWORKS
  • Getting information to the shop floor
  • Model-based work instructions

The SOLIDWORKS MBD User Group will meet at Table Mountain Inn on the afternoon (1:00 to 5:00 pm) of Monday, October 2, 2017. Stick around afterwards for networking! All CAD user group participants and 3D CIC attendees are invited to attend the CAD & Cocktails happy hour at 5:30 pm at Table Mountain Inn on Monday, October 2, 2017.

Registration is open to anyone with an interest in MBD for SOLIDWORKS. Contact Jennifer Herron with questions or topic suggestions.

PTC/USER Model-Based Enterprise Technical Committee [$150 early / $175 regular]

The PTC/USER MBE Technical Committee consists of PTC customers who gather regularly to share experiences and discuss the future possibilities of MBE as organizations work to utilize CAD models throughout the product lifecycle. These meetings allow PTC users to learn from each other regarding what does and does not work in the transition to MBE, along with the impact of evolving industry and commercial standards. PTC is an active participant in these meetings, working to improve their software to better meet the needs of their customers.

The agenda and presenters for the PTC/USER MBE Technical Committee will be finalized closer to the event, with anticipated focus areas including:

  • Publishing to Creo View and “neutral” formats
  • Design Review Process in Windchill
  • Getting information to the shop floor
  • Model-based work instructions

The PTC/USER MBE Technical Committee will meet at Golden Hotel for a full day (8:00 am to 5:00 pm) on Monday, October 2, 2017. Then head over to Table Mountain Inn afterwards for networking! All CAD user group participants and 3D CIC attendees are invited to attend the CAD & Cocktails happy hour at 5:30 pm on Monday, October 2, 2017.

Users of any PTC products who are not already committee members are invited to participate, please email the committee chair, Margi Korch.
