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.
