Moving to an Optimized 3D Model-Based Workflow (4/6/2014) - The move away from 2D drawings will be the biggest change in manufacturing industry in our careers – bigger than the move to CAD.  Any organization that wants to realize the full benefits of a 3D workflow must be ready to invest time and effort.  Many companies have started partway down this path already, but most haven’t thought […]
mbd-blog1 Phase 1 NIST PMI Test Cases and PMI Test Models Released (2/14/2014) - MBD360 LLC is proud to announce the release of the first phase of NIST PMI Test Models and PMI Test Cases. The NIST PMI Test Models represent an important step in the evolution and enhancement of product data interoperability between programs using 3D data. The PMI Test Models facilitate interoperability testing between all types of programs that create, translate, or consume 3D model-based product definition data. The PMI Test Models also facilitate testing capabilities of native CAD authoring software for the ability to recreate the test cases from scratch and compliance to the applicable standards upon which the PMI Test Models were created. The PMI in each of the Test Models was modeled as semantic PMI.
