Geometric releases DFMPro version 2.3 for Pro/ENGINEER®

Excel based reports facilitate easy tracking of manufacturability issues

Mumbai, India, October 28, 2010:   Geometric Limited (BSE: 532312, NSE: GEOMETRIC), a leader in Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), Global Engineering Services, and Offshore Product Development (OPD) solutions and technologies, today announced  the release of Version 2.3 of DFMPro for  Pro/ENGINEER.

DFMPro is a novel, automated design for manufacturing (DFM) review tool, that facilitates upstream manufacturability validation and identification of areas in design that are difficult, expensive or impossible to manufacture. It allows quick and in-depth examination of product manufacturability through advanced design rules for manufacturing processes like milling, drilling, turning, sheet metal fabrication, and injection molding. 

Version 2.3 of DFMPro for Pro/ENGINEER focuses on improving ease of DFM analysis and reporting with new functionalities like:

  • Support for formed features like extruded holes, embosses and dimples. Fourteen new rules involving these and other sheet metal features are added. New APIs for these features are additionally provided for rule customization.
  • Microsoft Excel based DFM analysis report, allowing users to easily track DFM review comments to closure. The report templates can be customized to suit individual preferences. Excel reports can be generated for standard as well as custom rules.
  • New grouping functionality for wall thickness related rules in injection molding, allowing users to segregate results into groups based on thickness ranges. Users will be able to quickly analyze results using this functionality.
  • New visualization and reporting options allow users to control visibility of components during result analysis and sequence of reported instances.

The new sheet metal rules broaden the scope of out-of-the-box manufacturing checks provided by DFMPro. Also, 3D reports along with the newly added excel reports provide a simple way for organizations to easily communicate, collaborate, and track manufacturability issues not only within the organization but also with vendors and customers.

DFMPro helps organizations leverage standard and organization-specific manufacturing knowledge to -

  • Reduce time-to-market by reducing design to manufacturing iterations
  • Improve quality by detecting defects
  • Reduce production costs by promoting usage of design and manufacturing standards
  • Improve innovation by capturing manufacturing knowledge for continuous improvement
