ADB 2020 – Dataset

Updated Dataset release

ADB2020 Dataset is now the default dataset.

This updated dataset incorporates the ADB2017 dataset together with isolation and bariatric exemplars.

All assemblies and components present in ADB20.4V2 are incorporated resulting in a complete assembly total of in excess of 1000 and a united component library of 3000+

The ADB dataset is always intended as a generic start point for any project and whilst we understand many clients tailor it for more specific delivery it is our intention moving forward to continue the development and maintain the integrity of the initial dataset within ADB wherever possible.
