Geometric Limited's DFM Pro software implements a set of critical DFM (Design For Manufacturing) rules to check designs from a manufacturing perspective. DFM Pro is available for SolidWorks 2007 and 2008.

The software was developed for designers to facilitate upstream manufacturability validation and identification of areas in design that are difficult, expensive and impossible to manufacture. DFM Pro is engineered for quick and in-depth examination of product manufacturability. It includes advanced design rules for manufacturing processes like milling, drilling, turning and sheet metal fabrication.

Benefits of DFM Pro include early prediction and preventions of production problems or manufacturing inefficiencies; assisting the evolution of optimal design and product quality; facilitating automation of manufacturability review process; decreasing lead time by reducing backtracking and design iterations; and providing scalable framework for manufacturability knowledge capture and reuse. DFM Pro can be customized as well.
