Geometric Limited has 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.
