After my great Nashville visit, I headed on down to Huntsville, AL last week. I was able to meet with a lot of SOLIDWORKS customers and users. I presented at the April 2015 meeting of the North Alabama SolidWorks User Group (NASWUG) about the topic of Model Based Definition (MBD), how to apply it within SOLIDWORKS. I also demonstrated the new SOLIDWORKS MBD product which streamlines SOLIDWORKS for MBD processes and provides 3D PDF output for non-CAD consumption for the purpose of contributing to Technical Data Packages (TDP).

There was a lot of great questions by user group meeting attendees about implementation Model Based Definition, the standards that support Model Based Definition (such as MIL-STD-31000), and Product and Manufacturing Information (PMI) solutions available in SOLIDWORKS, such as DimXpert.
I’m glad I had the opportunity to visit Nashville and Huntsville, along with many SOLIDWORKS customers in these areas. I learned a lot, and I also hope I provided a lot of new information to those interested in MBD and SOLIDWORKS in general.
