Geometric Ltd., a leader in Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions and technologies, today announced the release of DFMPro™ 2008 EX, an integrated tool on SolidWorks® which helps to get designs right the first time. Organizations can now easily add their own DFM checks and rules to automate in-house DFM practices into their standard operating procedures.
DFMPro is a revolutionary “Design for Manufacturability” product for designers and manufacturing engineers to facilitate upstream manufacturability validation and identification of design areas that are difficult, expensive or impossible to manufacture. DFMPro allows quick and in-depth examination of product manufacturability. DFMXpress, a lighter version of DFMPro is shipped with every seat of SolidWorks 2008.
DFMPro 2008 EX, the latest release of DFMPro, permits organizations to build their own custom rule libraries easily and quickly. Basic knowledge of Visual Basic (VB) scripting or SolidWorks macro languages is adequate to build custom rules. DFMPro 2008 EX now also supports easy sharing of manufacturability knowledge across departments, suppliers and vendors, thus improving their efficiency by reducing manufacturability issues. Advanced customization on the product can be provided by DFMPro product resellers, and also directly from Geometric.
DFMPro 2008 EX has also been enhanced with additional out-of-the-box rules for machining and sheet metal fabrication processes.
A limited period trial version of DFMPro 2008 EX is available at
