Manufacturers are moving toward 3D printing and CNC machining and 2D documentation, with traditional dimensioning and tollerancing becoming less relevant. MBD allows the addition of the dimensions and surface finishes that would have been traditionally communicated via 2D drawings. Existing electronic formats and viewers provided by most of the large commercial CAD-CAM products and electronic signatures legislation exclude, in most cases, the necessity of hard copy printing and the project data base is easely handled using the BOM structures. This papers will present the configuration of the model based definition and solution for linking the design knowledge content, using Autodesk Inventor®.
