 Overview What's New | System Requirements   
MDTools® the 3D manifold design software provides power tools to automate the manifold design, checking, documentation, and modeling process within the Autodesk® Inventor® environment.
Design large and complex manifolds easily, fast and error-free. MDTools checks the manifold for wall-thickness, wrong, missing and bad quality connections.
The 3D manifold assembly is created semi-automatically and the components stay associated with the cavities.
MDTools automatically creates a professional drawing for you including dimensions, cavity machining IDs, bore charts with meet list, plug and engraving tables and more.
Enhance your productivity and competitive edge with MDTools®

Powerful 3D visualization
of manifold internals
and connectivity

Color-coded cavities, and flow paths,
Port areas and Dead areas
easily identified


Tank and pressure connections
color coded for oil velocities

Easily identify velocity hotspots in manifold.



Auto Assemble all valve models
from links in HyDraw® Schematic



Compact manifolds:
use angled holes, slots,
undercuts, cut-outs,
orifices and O-ring grooves


Design driven by embedded manifold design methodology, rules and checks

Easy connections:
connect to cavity/net
(passage way)

Energy efficient smooth bends
minimize pressure drop and consequent energy loss within the manifold block.

MDTools 750 auto angle holes and cavity minipulation


Angle holes and cavity manipulation:
Stretch drill up to a cavity and make connection with inclination



Parametric cavity manipulation:
interactive calculations


Drag and Move a Cavity or Footprint

Move a cavity in the model
by dragging the center point
of the selected cavity

Move a cavity along an ordinate
by grabbing one of the
directional arrows





Check the manifold design:
connectivity, wall thickness,
and more

Check manifold manufacturability: slenderness ratio,
angular tolerance,
and more...




Extensive OEM Footprint/Cavity
libraries with customizable
machining details

Edit Cavity Library:
Add, Modify, Delete, Rename

Customize the Tooling database

Custom Machining chart formats:
Create and save

Setup MDTools to
optimize Diameter and Depth
when making connections and inserting construction ports

Define nominal velocity range
of oil flow for tank and pressure connections

Define construction hole
upsizing ratio, for different
velocity ranges






MDTools HyDrawTM Interface
Import schematic data
and jumpstart the
manifold design




Auto Dimensioning of all
6 orthographic views


Machining/Bore Chart creation
with Intersection Details
