Check a design for manufacturability
DFMXpress combines practical iterative functionality with accuracy and ease-of-use. Fully embedded inside of SolidWorks, it is perfect for the designer who needs manfacturability analysis, but is not necessarily a manufacturing expert. DFMXpress permits designers to easily gain insight into the cost-effective manufacturability of their designs.
DFMXpress Features & Benefits
- Explanations and recommendations that will help designers identify manufacturing feasibility
- Basic sets of rules for drilling, milling & turning
- Rules parameters can be configured
- Simple Graphical User Interface
- Seamlessly integrated into SolidWorks
- Feature Based (works with Automatic Feature Recognition engine)
- Leverages SolidWorks’ SWIFT technology
I would definitely run the tool, simply to make sure I did not over look something in the proposed design, prior to manufacturing. DFMXpress is certainly one of the more useful pieces of software I have recently seen.
