Latest version of Geometric's DFMPro(r) for NX helps improve productivity & aid in next generation
By: Geometric Limited
Companies are changing the way they think, design and manufacture. A next generation technique such as additive manufacturing is gaining widespread adoption in major industries as it offers endless opportunities and opens doors for complex geometries and light-weight parts. However traditional manufacturing techniques such as sand casting are still going strong.
With a variety of processes being used for manufacturing parts in a single product, DFMPro can help design engineers learn and apply manufacturing best practices for different processes thus avoiding downstream rework and cost problems. Design problems that result in secondary operations and support structures for additive manufacturing and hot spots, porosity, high shrinkage and cracking issues during sand casting process can be avoided. Tubing, leakage and performance issues can be avoided using DFMPro.
With v4.0, NX users can gain access to the introductory additive manufacturing suite on request. In addition, it further strengthens the rules for existing modules such as, milling, assembly and injection molding aimed at reducing rework, improving manufacturing time, reducing inventory and preventing assembly problems.
“The powerful manufacturability analysis capability provided by DFMPro efficiently leverages, complements and augments Check-Mate, an automated, customizable NX tool providing geometry, drafting and standards validation within the CAD user environment,”
“With significant enhancements in the new version of DFMPro, we are helping our NX customers confidently and accurately design products for traditional as well additive manufacturing processes, which is essential for success in today’s competitive environment”
DFMPro is a powerful CAD integrated Design for Manufacturing & Assembly solution which facilitates upstream manufacturability validation and identification of areas of a design that are difficult, expensive or impossible to manufacture. DFMPro provides numerous built-in checks for manufacturing processes like machining, sheet metal, casting, molding, assembly, additive manufacturing and tubing. It is fully integrated within NX, Creo Parametric and SolidWorks, and supports other leading CAD platforms.
