 MDTools Essential Overview | System Requirements | Free Evaluation | Service Packs  
Is MDTools® Essential for you?
Design less than 30 manifolds a year
Have simple manifold design needs
Are an occasional manifold designer
Are a machine builder using hydraulics
Are a hydraulic distributor wishing to communicate manifold intent to your
manifold supplier
MDTools Essential manifold design software provides power tools to assist in the manifold design, checking, documentation, and modeling process within the SOLIDWORKS and Autodesk Inventor environment.
Design manifolds easily, fast and error-free. MDTools Essential helps check the manifold for wall-thickness.
MDTools Essential enables creation of a professional manufacturing drawing including dimensions, cavity machining IDs, and bore charts.
