Knowledge of hydraulic components and basic cartridge valve geometry is sufficient. CAD knowledge is not necessary.
Designs may be shared with other NetBlok3D or MDTools® users through the VEST Mbxml manifold file format. PDF files of drawings and 3D STEP files may be generated to share with others.
Short, narrated instructional videos are available introducing basic NetBlok3D functionality.
If you are unable to find a cavity or footprint you seek, click the feedback icon and provide details. Our Product Support team will follow-up regarding your request.
No. Designs must be saved to your desktop. However, your working design is temporarily saved and will restore at login if there is a session interruption.
NetBlok3D is useful to create manifold block designs best suited for customer review, buyoff, and generating a quote. Several additional design steps need to be performed and artifacts created before it is ready for manufacture and assembly. MDTools is the perfect companion to NetBlok3D since both save and read the same design Mbxml file - your design engineers will thank you.
