Anark has released Anark Core MBEWorks for SolidWorks 2013. The new release has the ability to transform native SolidWorks 2013 parts and assemblies with 3D dimensions and tolerances, 3D GD&T, and other 3D notes into high-fidelity 3D PDF and 3D HTML MBE documents.
"This capability allows SolidWorks customers to quickly move away from old school 2D drawings (which adds up to 30% to the cost of an engineering organization) into the operationally superior and easier to understand 3D Model Based Enterprise (3D MBE) environment," said Chris Garcia, executive vice president of global commercial operations and business development at Anark.
The documents are free to deploy and free to view because they are created in native Adobe 3D PDF format, which can be viewed with the Free Adobe Reader, and native HTML Web browser format, which can be viewed in off-the-shelf free Internet browsers.
The solution can open native 3D PDF Engineering Documents (Technical Data Packages) directly into SolidWorks 2013 and transform them into their equivalent SolidWorks Solids, associative 3D MBD data, engineering views and custom engineering properties.
