Anark Announces MBEWorks™ for SolidWorks 2013

Powerful new features to be unveiled at SolidWorks World 2013 in Orlando

Boulder, CO - January 18, 2013: Anark Corporation, a leading provider of automated 3D CAD transformation and product visualization solutions announces Anark Core MBEWorks for SolidWorks 2013. This new version of MBEWorks will be demonstrated for the first time at SolidWorks World 2013 (booth # 807) held at Disney World (Swan and Dolphin) in Orlando Florida on January 20-23, 2013.

This powerful new release of Anark Core MBEWorks has the ability to transform native SolidWorks® 2013 parts and assemblies with 3D dimensions & 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, EVP of Global Commercial Operations and Business Development at Anark Corporation.

Anark Core MBEWorks generated 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 (like Internet Explorer).

New to Anark Core MBEWorks for SolidWorks 2013 is the ability to open native 3D PDF Engineering Documents (Technical Data Packages) directly into SolidWorks 2013 and to transform these 3D PDFs into their equivalent SolidWorks Solids, associative 3D MBD data, engineering views and custom engineering properties.

This is true regardless of which 3D CAD system originally generated the 3D PDF. For example, Creo-generated 3D PDF design documents can be opened and regenerated as native SolidWorks Parts and Assemblies with associative 3D dimensions and tolerances, originally defined by the Creo designer remaining completely intact.

"The new ability to import design and tolerance data via 3D PDFs generated from other CAD systems allows SolidWorks users to cost effectively work with upstream Prime Contractors. The data that was once locked in proprietary formats can now be recreated as a complete product definition in SolidWorks", said Fielder Hiss Vice President of Product Management for DS SolidWorks Corporation.

The DOD predicts that this ability to easily re-create the complete product definition from open 3D MBD TDPs will reduce the cost of scrap and rework by 19% and will improve the time to receive spares, repairs and upgrades from their suppliers by as much as 50%.

Additional new features and enhancements for Anark Core MBEWorks include the following for users of both SolidWorks 2012 and 2013:

  • Accelerated 3D PDF Publishing
  • Enhanced performance for loading/managing large models and assemblies
  • HTML based MBE-TDP (MBEWeb) Viewer support
  • Floating License Offering & New License Management System
  • Anark Core Server control enhancements for automated 3D PDF publishing
  • Many more
