Use 3D Model Based Definition (3D MBD) in Your Quality Process

WATCH VIDEO

The Quality Industry is Evolving. And that is Good.

Starting to Move Away From

Heavy reliance on 2D drawings

Drawings as the authoritative source of the information
The perceived need to print
Disconnected from other data and reports

Starting to Move Forward To

Greater emphasis on 3D MBD

Connecting the design, manufacturing and quality organizations
Increased efficiencies, effectiveness and operations
Improved overall part quality

Inspection Planning is Greatly Enhanced with 3D MBD

In recent years, more and more design and manufacturing companies are embracing solid and surface modeling techniques. However, 3D models often lack GD&T (geometric dimensioning and tolerancing) information that is necessary for the quality assurance organization.

The main problem with the typical CAD model is that it requires a separate drawing sheet to determine datum structure, key characteristics, and tolerancing to create an inspection plan. With 3D MBD, all pertinent product information and inspection planning data is included in one model, there is no longer a need for a 2D drawing.

Inspection Manager enables you to use 3D MBD files directly into an automated, streamlined manufacturing quality process – just like using a 2D drawing.

Easily integrate 3D MBD into your manufacturing quality workflow

Manufacturing quality engineers have traditionally used 2D drawings throughout the planning and inspection process. With the rise of Quality 4.0, many companies now expect their suppliers to use a 3D Model-Based Definition (3D MBD) workflow. That’s why High QA has made it simple to incorporate 3D models in your quality process.

High QA 3D MBD extracts, modifies and manages GD&T and PMI from native 3D MBD files

Intelligently extract, modify, and manage GD&T and PMI from native 3D MBD models

Gain understanding and clarity of 3D MBD files using High QA

Gain understanding and clarity of 3D model PMI and annotated data

High QA 3D MBD streamlines and automates quality process

Streamline and automate the quality process from ballooning and planning to data collecting and reporting

Expand Your Capabilities by Including 3D MBD in Your Quality Process

PMI data is automatically extracted and ballooned when the 3D MBD file is opened
View and use CAD data without additional CAD seats or licenses
Supports Catia, Creo, NX, SOLIDWORKS, Autodesk and other CAD formats.
Use 3D model directly in other Inspection Manager processes
Create new dimensions or use drag-and-drop technology to relocate PMI data into essential views
Rapidly create inspection plans from 3D models with PMI
Show, suppress, hide and move PMI annotation as needed
GD&T and PMI data is intelligently displayed and processed
Convert 3D models to 3D PDFs for viewing or STEP files for use in other manufacturing processes
Generate AS9102, NCR, FAI, PPAP and other inspection reports

No 2D Drawing? No Problem.

3D MBD can be effectively used in quality workflows. Inspection Manager provides a “single source of truth” for part quality data from both 2D and 3D files by managing all design, manufacturing, inspection, and quality data in a centralized digital location. This means inspection time is reduced and human interpretation is unnecessary resulting in fewer errors and inaccuracies. Having an authoritative single source of data provides greater repeatability, traceability, and accountability in the quality process.
