Abstract:When Saab chose methods for designing the airframe of the Next Generation Gripen fighter it was natural to choose a "full 3D" approach and to end the use of traditional 2D drawings. This was a decision based on many years of experience from the power of 3D visualization and the savings in man-hours, lead-time and quality that common understanding of the product will deliver. The vision now is to re-use 3D visualization throughout the product lifecycle. The same data that is created by the design engineer will be used for manufacturing instructions, maintenance descriptions, in the spare part catalogue and in any other area where visualization of the product is needed.
