3D Master - process reliability & improved data quality

The 3D Master – central medium in virtual product development

What is behind the 3D Master?

The 3D Master, a tool for storing and extracting information, can represent the central medium in the process chain. The point of the 3D Master is to provide all the product and production-relevant information relating to a component or assembly in a machine-readable form, in a 3D file.The basis is a 3D file, expanded so that it includes not just the geometry, but also any essential information such as the functions and properties of the components and assemblies which will be needed in subsequent processes. The 3D Master conceals not so much a product as a process, and this is now being utilised by many companies in their virtual product development.

Phased application of the 3D Master.

In the first stage, the 3D Master helps to convert the way in which data is handled in the process chain to the “single point of truth” (SPOT) method. In the subsequent expansion stage, a “single source of truth” (SSoT) is created in the project life cycle management system (PLM system). This provides for all formats relevant to the process chain to be appropriately filed in the PLM system. The different formats are reusable.

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.

Advantages 3D Master

  • The 3D master enables machine-supported validation, evaluation (work facilitation) and production (data consistency) by creating machine-readable and semantic PMI in 3D.
  • For the internal and external process chain partners, relevant secondary formats are automatically generated as required and stored in the PLM system.
  • Development timeframes can be reduced by up to 30% through the targeted implementation of automatisms.
  • The 3D Master ensures process reliability by avoiding redundancies and improving data quality.
  • 3D Master ≠ Paperless. If required, a 2-dimensional display of release-relevant information can be automatically generated from the 3D Master at any time on request.

Applications for simplifying design work

  • Create*Notes The application Create*Notes generates texts in 3D to company-wide standards, in accordance with strictly defined company requirements. The application is useful for storing additional product and production-relevant information. 
  • FTA*Marker The application FTA*Marker identifies PMI selected by the user in 3D, according to a predefined scheme. The application is useful whenever information is required in production-relevant form, or for creating the inspection plan or test reports.
