Design for Manufacturing
Design for Manufacturing - Optimize your designs for manufacturability
Design for manufacturing can help you significantly reduce engineering change orders (ECOs), manufacturing defects, costs and delays. DFMPro for NX gives you high-definition 3D tools that automate and formalize the design review process for manufacturability, helping you identify design issues that are difficult, expensive or impossible to manufacture.

DFMPro for NX is fully integrated with NX CAD tools, and uses high-definition 3D (HD3D) technology to highlight problem areas on the 3D model and inform designers of manufacturing problems during the deisn process.
NX for Design

Design Validation

Design for Manufacturing is made up of powerful features that allow you to build a custom solution. Read more about these features below.
HD3D Reporting Accelerates Validation

DFMPro for NX is seamlessly integrated with NX CAD software, and uses the proven NX Check-Mate validation framework to provide HD3D problem navigation, visual tagging and information drill-down. These support a rapid, streamlined process for identifying, understanding, and resolving manufacturability issues.

Manufacturability Checks Using Best Practices

DFMPro for NX automates and formalizes the design review process for manufacturability using best-practice knowledge. It accelerates the identification of problems and suggests corrective actions based on best-practice handbooks and a knowledge repository. By implementing common manufacturability checks with DFMPro for NX, you capture mistakes early in the design process and ensure that past mistakes are not repeated.
