 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.
  Part Model Functionality  >  3D manifold design environment
  Create a 3D block and start the manifold design
  Stretch the block in a specified direction retaining connectivity
  Insert cavities or footprint from the MDTools library
  Use HyDraw schematic to directly insert cavities with Net information
  Edit a cavity/footprint
  Manipulate cavities/footprints: Copy, rotate, move, stretch, relocate to another face
  Insert component outline for a cavity/footprint
  Suppress or Unsuppress cavities
  Delete cavities/footprints, component outlines
  Create connection between specified cavities
  Generate machining ID for all cavities in the specified format
  Manage net visibility and display colors
