MDTools

MDTools is an add-in for Autodesk Inventor or Solidworks that give you all the commands to design, check and assemble hydraulic manifolds, either you start from a circuit on paper or made with HyDraw CAD or HyDraw V.

Below is a list of MDTools main features:

  • extensive and customisable cavity library
  • rich 3d command set to quickly create,change and twist your design
  • ability to display connections in the manifold thanks to an easy and intuitive net color set
  • ability to find errors in the design like
    • wrong connections (like a pressure net hitting a tank net)
    • missing connections (you forget to connect one port of a cavity)
    • bad quality connections (a drill shorter than expected)
    • dead area intersections (a drill hole hitting an are where you would expect an oring)
  • ability to check wall thickness problems (2 cavities too close each other)
  • manufacturability check
  • commands to manage stamping text
  • automatic assembly from HyDraw
  • tools to easily and quickly assemble components
  • simplified 3d assembly in step model directly from MDTools (removing all construction ports and all internal connections)
  • automatic machining drawing with full set of customizable lists (bore chart, cavities, engravings…)
