SOLIDWORKS MBD Tutorial - Using Sketch Dimensions In MBD Views

This video shows you the steps needed to leverage sketched or parametric driving dimensions inside a SolidWorks Model Based Definition (MBD) view or into a MBD 3D PDF or 3D Edrawing. Model Based Definition (MBD) is becoming the new standard for creating manufacturing documentation within the 3D part file rather than having to make a traditional drawing. This video focuses on using the sketcher’s driving dimensions in MBD views only. For continued MBD training search for my other MBD training videos, Getting Started With SOLIDWORKS MBD, which illustrates how to get started with MBD or search Leveraging MBD Views In Traditional Drawings, which illustrates the steps required to leverage your 3D MBD views to automatically create traditional ANSI standard orthogonal view drawings. Please comment back any thoughts and I invite you to stay on the look-out for additional MBD videos I promise to produce! This SOLIDWORKS Tutorial is by Bruce Shawler at GoEngineer.
