MBD Templates

MBD templates for parts and assemblies are included with all versions of SOLIDWORKS 2018 where the text sizes scale properly to the component and assembly sizes.

The new MBD templates have predefined settings based on your model size. When you use these templates, you will automatically get the proper scaling for your model and text. For example, select Part 0001 mm to 0010 mm if the model you are designing will be in the range of one to ten mm. This template is designed for this part size, which helps simplify your work.

The new templates are installed with your SOLIDWORKS installation.

To use a template:

  1. Click File > New.
  2. In the New SOLIDWORKS Document dialog box, click the MBD tab.
  3. Select a template.
  4. Click OK.
