006 – Query? What’s a query?
In this episode I review the concept of query as it relates to MBD. Query is the primary means of interacting with an MBD model. You can get information about the various digital elements in a model using query, and most importantly you can get information about the relationships between these digital elements. In most cases, these relationships between digital elements cannot be presented in an unambiguous way without the use of query, which is why query is an important and... Read More Read More

005 – The Importance of Community
In this episode I provide my thoughts on the importance of the community known as the MBD Technical Committee, which is part of the PTC/User Technical Committees. This community has been around for over 10 years and provides a lot of value to its members – those who are PTC customers as well as those who work for PTC. Following the recent LiveWorx 2016 event some changes were announced to how the PTC/User Technical Committees will operate. I discuss those... Read More Read More

002 – Orthographic views, good or bad for MBD?
In this episode I talk about the topic of using an orthographic orientation for your saved views in MBD models and whether they are something to be embraced or avoided. I’m contrasting orthographic orientations (where the principal surfaces of the model are parallel or perpendicular to the screen) from isometric orientations (any orientation where the principal surfaces are NOT parallel or perpendicular to the screen). Here, I’m using a very loose definition of isometric and not the strict technical definition... Read More Read More
