    Frequently Asked
    Questions

  • Which CAD file formats export from MBD Tools for NX?
      

     QIF.

  • Can I generate FAI, PPAP, or other inspection forms with MBD Tools for NX?
      

    No, MBD Tools for NX does not generate inspection forms. MBDVidia is a standalone software that does this.

  • What's the difference MBD Tools for NX and MBDVidia?
      

    MBD Tools for NX allows for exporting in QIF.


    MBDVidia is a standalone software that exports QIF and also MBD workflows such as MBD first article inspection and PMI healing.

  • What is MBD and semantic PMI?
      

    Model-based definition (MBD) is the practice of embedding 3D annotations aka semantic PMI into the 3D model itself. It's the next evolution as the industry transitions away from 2D drawings and into human & machine-readable 3D models.

  • Moving to MBD is tough. How can I make that jump?
      

    Start small and on the ground floor. Don't try to boil the ocean. Find a manageable pilot project and measure ROI. Optimize then expand.
