Break the Design for Manufacturability Barrier

Autodesk Simulation DFM 2013: Design for manufacturability software

Autodesk® Simulation DFM software is a revolutionary new tool that helps plastic product designers to create digital prototypes with manufacturing processes in mind. Simulation DFM works within your existing 3D CAD system to provide directional feedback at a glance as you design. The easy-to-understand green/yellow/red indicators give you near real-time input regarding your design’s injection moulding manufacturability, cost and environmental impact.

  • 3D CAD design focused – Get manufacturability feedback upfront in the design process as you create new CAD geometry.
  • Always on – A quick glance at the always-on green/yellow/red indicator lets you know whether your design change affects manufacturability, cost, environmental impact, or all three.
  • Fast manufacturability analysis – Calculations update as quickly as your computer can compute new CAD geometry, in near real-time.
  • Multiple CAD integrations – Works within Dassault® SolidWorks®, PTC™, Creo® Elements/Pro or Pro/ENGINEER®, and Autodesk® Inventor® software. Your design tool won’t change, but it can improve. Autodesk Simulation DFM scans your 3D CAD geometry and provides feedback on nominal wall thickness, draft angles, material cost, recyclability, sink marks, fill pattern and more.
