Model-Based Definition Dimension and Annotate Your 3D Models to Create a “Single Source of Truth” Everyone Can Rely On

Why MBD?

For years, engineers used 2D drawings to deliver product manufacturing information—even as they designed models in 3D.

No more. Using model-based definition (MBD) methods, engineers now embed product data directly in the 3D models, creating a single, reliable source of truth for the whole extended team. That not only makes sense, it prevents errors and saves everybody time.

Creo Parametric provides the tools you need to annotate, publish, and view MBD-compliant models. Add the Creo GD&T Advisor Extension, and you can be sure your work, and that of your team, follows ASME standards.
