Geometric DFX is powered by Geometric’s award-winning design for manufacturability solution DFMPro® and leverages the CGM 3D modeling kernel from Spatial Corp., a leading provider of 3D components for technical application development.
Empowers design engineers to validate their designs for manufacturability, assembly, serviceability, warranty, quality and others
Mumbai, India, August 20, 2013: Geometric Limited (BSE: 532312, NSE: GEOMETRIC), a leader in Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), Global Engineering Services, and Offshore Software Product Development (OSPD) solutions and technologies, today announced the launch of Geometric DFX, a standalone application for carrying out DFX validation of product designs. Geometric DFX is powered by Geometric’s award-winning design for manufacturability solution DFMPro® and leverages the CGM 3D modeling kernel from Spatial Corp., a leading provider of 3D components for technical application development. Spatial’s 3D InterOp is also used to enable data reuse for native CATIA® V5 and other leading CAD formats.
DFX stands for Design for X where X
represents various downstream process checks related to manufacturability, assembly, quality, warranty, penalty, serviceability, environment, reliability and so on. It is essential to incorporate various DFX guidelines early in the product development phase to reduce defects, cut down rework, eliminate waste, shorten time to market and save costs. Traditionally, organizations have been using manual DFX checks, which are time consuming and error prone. Geometric DFX addresses this problem by enabling designers to validate 3D CAD data using design rules based on global best practices for various downstream issues as listed above.
“Geometric DFX automates the process of DFX validation in a standalone 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 Mr. Sameer Kondejkar, Sr. Director and Head, Geometry Technology Solutions Business at Geometric.
Geometric DFX supports CAD formats from CATIA V5, Inventor® and others. Geometric DFX comes prepackaged with around 100 design rules based on global best practices and can be customized to add organization specific best practices too. The various manufacturing processes currently supported include machining, casting, injection molding, and sheet metal fabrication. Geometric DFX will benefit manufacturing companies in domains such as automotive, consumer durables, aerospace, high-tech, medical equipment, and contract electronics manufacturing.
