DFMPro for NX saves you not only time but also a lot of strife.Just think: You design a part that contains screws. When it comes time to manufacture that part, someone—be it machine or human—has to screw each one of those in. That requires enough room to access the screws with a screwdriver. Now imagine all of the hundreds of tiny pieces that go into a given part. You have to check each and every one!
Not anymore thanks to DFMPro for NX. Manufacturing design is a breeze when you use this automated process to check your design. It identifies design features that are difficult, expensive, and/or impossible to manufacture at the design stage itself, so you can avoid downstream issues such as rework or even product recalls—all of which impact cost, quality and time to market.
DFMPro for NX not only highlights the problem, but also suggests corrective actions and values from best practice handbooks and a knowledge repository. This makes it easy and fast for you to change your design. Instead of focusing on the menial yet completely necessary task of ensuring manufacturability, you are now free to realize innovation in your designs!
DFMPro covers many commonly used manufacturing processes:
- Machining (milling, turning, drilling)
- Injection molding
- Sheet metal fabrication
