We are excited to be sponsoring 3D CIC March 4th – 7th in Golden, Colorado.

3D Collaboration & Interoperability Congress (3D CIC) is one of the few industry conferences that concentrates specifically on MBD. The conference is known for having a thoughtful mix of presenters with a focus on implementors. We look forward to a great opportunity to hear about real-world examples of MBD implementation and be surrounded by others who are working to achieve similar goals and facing similar challenges. Learn more about the Conference and how to attend here at https://3dcic.com/.

Sponsor Presentation – Intentional MBD: A Tale of Two Roads

Date: Tuesday March 5th

Time: 11:25am – 11:45am MST

Director of MBE, Mike Werkheiser, will be presenting on the two most common paths we see within our customers at Belcan for MBD implementation.

  • The “Easy Road” = MBD is a lightweight 3D viewer that replaces a drawing. The focus is on authoring MBD for a human consumer.
  • The “Hard Road” = MBD is a trusted and interoperable source and derivative CAD file. The focus is on balancing the needs of the machine and the human.

At Belcan, we advocate for the hard road that intentionally authors interoperable MBD that can be leveraged by the producers to return the promised value. Within this presentation we will focus on the importance of crafting a comprehensive MBE strategy that utilizes machine plus human readable and industry compliant MBD as a foundational element. Additionally, we will showcase why the hard road will outperform the easier options. Lastly, we will talk about the essential strategic actions that must be prioritized and how to measure success along your journey.
