Anark Corporation and Geometric Limited Announce Anark Core™ MBEWeb™
May 2 12
Anark Corporation and Geometric Limited announced their new 3D Model Based Enterprise authoring and viewing capability which integrates gently into existing PLM Enterprise infrastructure. 3D Model Based Enterprise is a term coined by the U.S. Department of Defense and adopted by many commercial manufacturing companies to define: the reuse of 3D Model Based Definition data, the elimination of costly and redundant 2D Drawings and 2D Technical Data Packages An affordable 3D MBE deployment method based on open and readily available standards. In the case of MBEWeb, these deployment methods are through Free HTML5 Browsers and the Free Adobe Reader respectively. Anark Core MBEWeb is a HTML publishing capability for Anark Core software, allowing users to transform native 3D CAD parts and assemblies, together with their attributes, dimensions and tolerances, product views, and other model based definition (MBD) information, into high-resolution and high-quality 3D HTML MBE documents with support for interactive ASME Y14.41 visual response. These documents are free to view within standard HTML web browsers, and can support a number of downstream manufacturing use cases. MBEWeb can also transform native JT parts and assemblies with MBD (popular in the automotive industry) into high quality and interactive 3D HTML MBE documents. Additionally, with Anark Core MBEWeb, users can connect, transform, and associate PLM and other non-CAD manufacturing attributes into a single `fit-for-purpose' interactive and animated 3D manufacturing process documents like 3D Animated Work Instructions, 3D Inspection documents, and 3D Request for Quotes. Helping enterprises capture and communicate manufacturing best practices both to internal operations and to external suppliers. With the new Anark Core MBEWeb 3D HTML publishing capability combined with Anark Core's easy-to-use authoring user interface, subject matter experts in manufacturing, inspection, Program Managers and/or purchasing can now easily create lightweight 3D HTML MBE documents for their in house (`inside-the-firewall') non-engineering users. And since the same easy-to-use Anark Core authoring environment can also be used to publish 3D PDF MBE documents in parallel with the 3D HTML MBE documents, these same subject matter experts have the additional flexibility to distribute lightweight 3D PDF manufacturing documents to their `outside-the-firewall' tier 2, 3 and 4 external suppliers--without any additional training or expertise. These 3D PDF MBE documents are also free to view by downstream users through the very popular and ubiquitous Free Adobe Reader. With Anark Core MBEWeb, enterprise manufacturing companies can now easily turn their PLM, 3D CAD with MBD, and manufacturing data assets into fit-for-purpose, free-to-view, and always-in-sync, 3D MBE Manufacturing documents. These documents are deployable in the open 3D HTML format, the open 3D PDF standard format, or both.
