The 2019 QIF Summit will run concurrently with 3D CIC this year.  Expect to learn how the power of the QIF standard is applied in real-life MBD process flows.


We are collaborating with the 3D PDF Consortium to develop presentations that include specific examples of how the 3D PDF standard is being utilized by users in their MBD workflows.



Various stages of MBE and Trust Digital journey maturity, multiple industries, and all of the major 3D CAD software platforms are represented by 3D CIC speakers. These are just some of the speakers you will hear from at this year’s event: 

Wynne Odell, CEO of Odell Brewing
Tim Priser, Lockheed Martin
Chris Schreiber, Lockheed Martin
Devin Barnes, Lockheed Martin
Brian Kaplun, Lockheed Martin
Jose Resendis, Raytheon
Ben Kassel, LMI
Sylvere Krima, NIST
Charles Culp, Essex Industries
Nick Eplin, Essex Industries
Kevin Sari, Leonardo DRS
Alex Boehm, United Launch Alliance
Myon Caruthers, Honeywell FM&T
Casey Nordwald, United Launch Alliance
Sara Shield, Sandia
Benny Yap, Cisco
Evan Kessick, GE Appliances
Philip Jennings, Huntington Ingalls|Newport News Shipbuilding
Leslie Peters, CEO Metro Aerospace

Speaker time slots to be announced.

3D CIC focuses on 3D CAD collaboration and interoperability for the entire product lifecycle. Trust Digital is the 2019 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.”

Several special sessions are included with your 2019 registration. Sessions will be announced closer to the start of the conference.

GD&T for MBD Master Class at 3D CIC

Monday, October 7, 2019
1:00-5:00 pm

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
