Mumbai, India, June 04, 2008: Geometric Limited (BSE: 532312, NSE: GEOMETRIC), a leader in Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions and technologies, today announced that their revolutionary Design for Manufacturability (DFM) product, DFMPro has achieved ‘Solution Partner’ status from SolidWorks Corporation. Fully integrated with SolidWorks® 3D CAD, DFMPro facilitates upstream manufacturability validation and identification of design areas that are difficult, expensive or impossible to manufacture.
Commenting on the new partner product status, Ms. Efrat Ravid, Director of Marketing and Alliances at SolidWorks said “DFMPro is a unique add-in within SolidWorks that checks manufacturability issues right at the design stage. Since it is fully integrated within SolidWorks, it can be effectively used by our customers to reduce overall product development costs”.
Dr. Vinay Kulkarni, COO – Desktop Products & Technologies, Geometric Limited said, “This recognition from SolidWorks Corp. reflects our commitment to customers to ensure greater efficiencies in product realization. DFMPro is our niche offering in the DFM space, which helps to get designs right the first time.”
Used at the designing stage, this tool allows quick and in-depth examination of product manufacturability. DFMPro performs rule based checks which can predict manufacturing problems early in the designing stage. It considerably reduces the design review steps, thereby pushing new products into the manufacturing stage swiftly.
DFMXpress, a lighter version of DFMPro is shipped with every seat of SolidWorks® 2008. Geometric recently announced the launch of DFMPro 2008 EX, the latest release of DFMPro, which permits organizations to build their own custom rule libraries easily and quickly.
