3D-Master aims primarily to reduce the amount of work involved in creating the data, but also to change the process chain in the use of data to the Single Source of Truth (SSOT) method. Therefore, all required PMI are stored in machine-readable and semantic form in 3D and/or neutral Formats.
Meta information is generated and administered in the PLM system. Selected metadata is transmitted within the properties of the 3D model. Product specifications and requirements are linked to the PLM object and, if necessary, passed on to the geometry.
- Process information
General data on cross-component information is administrated in PLM and referenced in 3D (including the variable values).
- 3D environment
PMI* with direct geometric reference are generated only once in machine-readable and semantic form. Design guidelines and best practice solutions are provided in digital form for reuse (e.g. reference models)
A common understanding of the technical facts is provided by suitable viewers, converters and replacement formats. The keyword: “Demand-oriented visualization by pushing the button”.
Applications to facilitate the design effort
- Create*Notes: The application Create*Notes generates company-wide standardized texts in 3D according to predefined company specifications. The application is useful for additional storage of product and production relevant information.
- FTA*Marker: The FTA*Marker application marks user-selected PMIs in 3D according to a predefined scheme. The application is of great value as soon as information is required in production-relevant form or for the generation of inspection plans or test reports.
At Feynsinn, we have been working on the development and implementation of the 3D Master process in a variety of different sectors for more than 8 years now. To do this, we first of all identify the processes that already exist in the product development process, and give a recommendation on this basis. The most practical entry into the 3D Master for the company concerned is then implemented step by step. An upgrade is possible at any time.
