Anark Announces MBEWorks™ for SolidWorks 2012

Boulder, CO - February 8, 2012: Anark Corporation, a leading provider of automated 3D CAD transformation and product visualization solutions announces its new 3D MBE capability integrated into SolidWorks 2012 called Anark Core MBEWorks™. This new capability will be demonstrated for the first time at SolidWorks World 2012 (booth #405) held at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego California.

Anark Core MBEWorks transforms SolidWorks 2012 parts and assemblies with 3D linear dimensions & tolerances, 3D GD&T, and other 3D notes into high-resolution 3D PDF and 3D HTML MBE documents. These open formatted documents contain manufacture-quality BREP geometry, interactive associativity (between features and their 3D Dimensions and Tolerances per ASME Y14.41 "visual response"), and "machine readable" semantic definitions for each component part.

Unleash the Model Based Enterprise™

With MBEWorks you can easily turn your SolidWorks 3D Parts, Assemblies with 3D Dimension and Tolerance data into 3D MBE Technical Data Packages (TDPs), Requests for Quotes, Digital Work Instructions, Inspection Documents and other 3D PDF and 3D HTML based manufacturing process documents.

MBEWorks is perfect for interacting with the Department of Defense (DOD) and can both create and consume 3D MBE TDPs and 3D MBE Manufacturing Process documents. 3D MBE is the new DOD Product data strategy outlined in MIL-STD-31000.

Adopting MBEWorks will give you a significant advantage over your competition when bidding for government contracts.

Reduce Costs Across the Model Based Enterprise

MBEWorks allows SolidWork's users to dramatically reduce the costs associated with communicating dimension and tolerance information (design intent) to their internal organizations, their suppliers and their customers by replacing redundant, hard to interpret and expensive 2D drawings with a single, complete and easy to interpret 3D Model Based Definition (MBD) document.

MBEWorks also saves SolidWorks users significantly on 3D MBD/MBE deployment costs since MBEWorks creates native Adobe 3D PDF and native HTML5 formatted documents that can be fully viewed and interacted with using the Free Adobe Reader and Free Web Browsers, unlike other solutions that charge for each user that wants to fully view and interact with 3D MBD/MBE information.

The 4-Easies for Creating 3D MBE documents

MBEWorks was developed with SolidWorks users in mind. Anyone can easily create "Fit for Purpose," lightweight 3D PDF and 3D HTML MBD/MBE documents directly from their SolidWorks Parts and Assemblies, 3D Dimensions and Tolerances, Process Plans stored within Excel Spread Sheets and other sources of manufacturing data. Like other SolidWorks capabilities, the beauty of MBEWorks is in its ease of use, intuitive approach and cost effective implementation. This means that your 3D MBD/MBE documents can be easily created and deployed without special IT staff, specialists in 3D animation or expensive consultants with scripting language and XML expertise.

This is made possible because MBEWorks was developed with these 4- principles in mind:

"Anark Core MBEWorks is a powerful, yet easy to use, tool for SolidWorks users to blaze the path into the new 3D Model Based Enterprise paradigm. MBEWorks was created with simplicity and ease of use in mind. It's for SolidWorks users who want a quick, easy to use and cost effective tool for repurposing their SolidWorks parts and assemblies into powerful and free to view 3D MBE documents," said Chris Garcia, EVP of Global Commercial Operations and Business Development at Anark Corporation.

"We are very happy to be partnering with Anark Corporation to provide to our SolidWorks user the very best technology in the area of 3D MBE document creation. Anark has been recognized as the innovative leaders in the area of lightweight 3D PDF generation and have truly lead the way for this important 3D MBE paradigm shift spear headed by the Department of Defense" , said Fielder Hiss Vice President of Product Management for SolidWorks Corporation.
