Autodesk Simulation DFM software helps plastic product designers create digital prototypes for manufacturing processes. Simulation DFM works within your existing 3D CAD software with easy to understand indicators give you near real-time feedback regarding your design’s manufacturability, cost, and environmental impact.
3D CAD design focused
Get manufacturability feedback upfront in the design process, as you create new CAD geometry.
The “Always on” green/yellow/red indicator lets you know if your design change affects manufacturability, cost, environmental impact, or all three.
Fast manufacturability analysis
Calculations update just as fast as your computer can compute new CAD geometry, in near real-time, to help you better design for manufacturability.
Multiple CAD integrations
Simulation DFM works within Dassault SolidWorks, PTC, Creo Elements/Pro or Pro/ENGINEER, and Autodesk Inventor software.
Your design tool won’t change, but it can improve. Simulation DFM scans your 3D CAD geometry and provides feedback on nominal wall thickness, draft angles, material cost, recyclability, sink marks, fill pattern, and more.
