MBD Workflow & CAD Translation

What MBDVidia does:

  • Publish any CAD file into neutral CAD file (QIF or STEP AP242).
  • MBD data for downstream use in manufacturing, quality, and supply chain (e.g. automated FAI, CMM, etc.)
  • PLM integration and measurement data harvesting: Digital Twin.

MBDVidia Benefits:

  • Save up to 80% of hours spent on annotating, machining, and inspection.
  • Save up to 88% time spent on first article inspection report (FAIR) creation.
  • First (and easiest) step of the MBD and MBE journey.
Derivative CAD Validation & Revision Comparison

What CompareVidia does:

  • 3D translation validation software for native, neutral, and derivative CAD files.
  • Manage engineering change orders (ECO) by comparing CAD revisions.
  • Boeing Spec D6-51991 DPD requirement validation
    & other compliance standards.

CompareVidia Benefits:

  • Catch CAD errors before manufacturing, cost savings up to 2-5X.
  • Get digitally certified pass/fail reports for validated CAD models.
  • Reliably reuse CAD for downstream use: CAM, CMM, CNC, etc.

Native CAD Plug-ins for Exporting QIF, STEP AP242, and Other MBD Data

What MBDConnect CAD plug-ins do:

  • Native CAD support for exporting into neutral CAD (QIF and STEP AP242).
  • 2D CAD drawing to 3D PMI for Creo. Upgrade legacy data.
  • Use MBD CAD data for downstream manufacturing and inspection software.

MBDConnect CAD plug-in benefits:

  • 81% reduction in CMM workflow.
  • Native plug-in for easy export options.
  • Create neutral CAD derivatives that map back to the source model.
Measurement Uncertainty Simulation

What Pundit does:

  • Inspection simulation that calculates task-specific measurement
    uncertainties for CMM measurements.
  • Identifies potential issues before actual measurements are made and before product designs are finalized.
  • Helps meet ISO 17025 requirements.

Pundit benefits:

  • Reduce measurement uncertainty up to 4X or more.
  • Improve your confidence in the measurement task at hand.

Auto-Balloon 2D Drawings

What Balloon 2D does:

  • Auto-ballooning software for capturing annotations from 2D engineering drawings.
  • Convert into machine-readable Bill of Characteristics for automated inspection planning, reporting, and workflows (AS9102, FAI, PPAP, etc.)
  • Publish to PDF, HTML, Excel, and Net-Inspect.

Balloon2D Benefits:

  • Save up to 50-80% time on inspection reports.
  • Eliminate manual entry errors and time burden.
  • Balloon2D is part of MBDVidia allowing for optional 2D, 3D, or dual 2D/3D workflows.
