Geometric Limited has launched Geometric DFX, a stand-alone application for carrying out DFX validation of product designs. It is powered by Geometric's design for manufacturability solution DFMPro and leverages the CGM 3D modeling kernel from Spatial. Spatial's 3D InterOp is also used to enable data reuse for native CATIA V5 and other leading CAD formats.
The solution allows designers to validate 3D CAD data using design rules based on global best practices for various downstream issues.
"Geometric DFX automates the process of DFX validation in a stand-alone package early during the design stage, thereby cutting down the long review process and identification of downstream issues. It improves the productivity of design and manufacturing engineers as well as enhances collaboration between them to reduce cost, improve quality and time to market," said Sameer Kondejkar, senior director and head of the company's geometry technology solutions business.
The solution supports multiple CAD formats, including CATIA V5, Inventor and others. It comes prepackaged with 100 design rules based on global best practices and can be customized to add organization-specific best practices.
