As we look into adding checks to ModelCHECK for MBD, we could use some examples from you to give us a better understanding of what scenarios these checks would address. Would any of you be willing to send non-proprietary examples of the following potential checks for MBD?
Please note that this is not the entire list of proposed MBD checks, nor are all that are listed above necessarily planned for Creo 6. These are simply the checks that could use some supporting data to assist the development process.

Although we haven't moved to MBD (yet...), I would appreciate if all current drawing checks were reviewed to be migrated over for MBD. For instance, overwrite dimension, note_case/font/height/info/spell/unaccept, std_symbols, symbol_info/spell, etc. If there is a way to include tables or formats, there should also be a way to have an equivalent to FORMAT_NAME? Although, I don't recall hearing that from the training I took a few years ago. Also, maybe check for standard combined state names. Modelcheck interactive should automatically add standard orientations and combined states for legacy models.
Luke...I am trying to identify Modelcheck enhancements that were added for Creo 4 and for Creo 5. I'm the MC implementer here at NASA Goddard SFC. Can you point the way for me? Barry Schaeffer
Thanks for the input, Joseph. Plans for Creo 6.0 are pretty well set, but this is good feedback for future Creo versions.
Unfortunately, our documentation for ModelCHECK enhancements for Creo 4.0 and 5.0 is lacking, but I'm attaching a couple of slides that highlight changes that have come to ModelCHECK releases.
Unfortunately, it does not check subfolders. You need to set the material directory "pro_material_dir" in config.pro to the folder containing the exact material cards.
