KnowHow: PMI Annotation to Feature assoziation (MBD)

12-08-14gnikol

PMIs (Product Manufacturing Information) are used to annotate 3D CAD models, trying to replace 2D drawings. Frequently the terms MBD (Model Based Definition), MBE (Model Based Enterprise = a company that adopted MBD), GD&T (Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing) or FT&A (Functional Tolerancing & Annotation) are used. Kisters 3DViewStation supports PMIs for most fileformats including Catia, NX, ProE / Creo, JT… 3D annotations are displayed, predefined views (see also here) are shown using the defined name, camera position and visibility settings per object. Also, Kisters 3DViewStation highlights the assoziated feature if a PMI annotation has been clicked.
