Anark announced its new Anark Core MBEWorks, a 3D MBE capability integrated into SolidWorks 2012.
According to the company, Anark Core MBEWorks transforms SolidWorks 2012 parts and assemblies with 3D linear dimensions and tolerances, 3D GD&T, and other 3D notes into high-resolution 3D PDF and 3D HTML MBE documents. These open-formatted documents contain manufacture-quality BREP geometry, interactive associativity (between features and their 3D Dimensions and Tolerances per ASME Y14.41 “visual response”), and “machine readable” semantic definitions for each component part.
MBEWorks allows SolidWork’s users to reduce the costs associated with communicating dimension and tolerance information (design intent) to their internal organizations, their suppliers and their customers by replacing expensive 2D drawings with a single 3D Model Based Definition (MBD) document.
