Geometric Enhances User Experience for NX with DFMPro 4.1

Launches the latest released version 4.1 of its solution DFMPro which enhances design review collaboration to advance and improve user experience for Seimen’s PLM software

PLM and OPD Solutions provider Geometric has released version 4.1 of its automated design for manufacturability solution, DFMPro for NX software. The latest version delivers many new customer-driven enhancements for users of NX, a leading integrated 3D computer-aided design, manufacturing and engineering analysis (CAD/CAM/CAE) software, developed by Siemens’ PLM software business.

As per the press release, the latest version of DFMPro, significantly speeds up the design review time with its powerful new Microsoft Excel based reporting feature. Users can easily create, share and communicate DFM analysis reports in Microsoft Excel format with internal teams and external manufacturing suppliers located globally. Additionally, users designing plastic parts will get better control for molding of a part with the newly added ‘Mold Wall Classification’ feature which segregates between the core and cavity mold faces.

The solution also helps improve design and manufacturing collaboration for organizations. Design reviews are conducted with teams on different aspects such as functionality, manufacturability, serviceability and cost, to solicit their critical input during early design stages. With the changing engineering landscape and cross-disciplinary teams scattered across the globe, design reviews can be highly time-consuming, and error-prone. DFMPro captures the rules for these multi-disciplinary aspects, thus automating the basic review, said the release.
According to Swadhin Bhide, Head of Geometry Technology Solutions Business Unit at Geometric, “We constantly strive to bring significant enhancements to meet the changing needs of our users, while also ensuring that they benefit from newer functionality and ease-of-use. With the newest version of DFMPro, we are significantly reducing the design review time for our NX users as well as improving the productivity of designers.”

Joe Bohman, VP, Product Engineering Software, Siemens PLM Software added, “The NX Check Mate tool automates design checking and makes drafting and standards validation a continuous, proactive process rather than an afterthought. The powerful manufacturability analysis capability provided by DFMPro efficiently leverages, complements and augments Check-Mate.”
