Features for Simulation DFM

Break the design for manufacturability barrier

Simulation DFM software helps plastic product designers create use Digital Prototyping (US site) for manufacturing processes. Simulation DFM works within your existing 3D CAD with easy-to-understand indicators that provide near real-time feedback regarding your design’s manufacturability, cost, and environmental impact.


3D CAD design focused

Get manufacturability feedback early in the design process as you create new CAD geometry.

Always on

The “Always on” green/yellow/red indicator lets you know if your design change affects manufacturability, cost, environmental impact, or all three.

Fast manufacturability analysis

Calculations update just as fast as your computer can compute new CAD geometry, in near real-time, to help you better design for manufacturability.

Multiple CAD integrations

Simulation DFM works within Dassault SolidWorks, PTC, Creo Elements/Pro or Pro/ENGINEER, and Inventor 3D CAD software.

Your design tool won’t change, but it can improve. 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.
