Additive Model-Based Definition

Additive Model-Based Definition (MBD) is a strategic approach to creating 3D models that contain essential data needed to define a product. The AM process at Tangible is extremely high-resolution, and MBD produces a model that drives all engineering activities.

3D Model Advantages

The 3D model defines features that are desired (and not desired) in finished parts. Complex features such as lattice structures or roughened surfaces can easily be modeled in and finished products will have the modeled features exactly where intended. The advances in MBD and supporting technology that Tangible is using as a globally recognized contract manufacturer of American-made 3D printed Titanium orthopedic implants will eventually become the standard of design in additive manufacturing.
