Autodesk Simulation DFM Software Simplifies Plastic Part Design for
SAN RAFAEL, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 3, 2012--
Inc. (NASDAQ:ADSK) announced the availability of Autodesk Simulation
DFM (Design for Manufacturing) software, the industry’s first real-time
injection molding simulation
software that provides real-time feedback. The CAD software plug-in
provides designers of plastic parts with a faster and easier way to
determine the impact of design decisions on manufacturability, cost and
Based on Autodesk
Labs technology also known as Project Krypton, Autodesk Simulation
DFM seamlessly integrates with Autodesk
Product Design Suite software, and specifically Autodesk
Inventor software, and provides a complementary technology to Autodesk
Simulation Moldflow software. Autodesk Simulation DFM also works
with Dassault, SolidWorks and PTC Creo software to support companies
working in a multi-CAD environment.
“With Autodesk Simulation DFM, designers of plastic parts can more
easily create designs that are viable from a manufacturing standpoint,
while helping ensure low costs and sustainability,” said Robert
“Buzz” Kross, senior vice president, Design, Lifecycle and
Simulation at Autodesk. “Users do not need a simulation background to
take advantage of Autodesk Simulation DFM — the software is highly
intuitive and easily integrates into any design workflow.”
Adding Real-Time Feedback to Design Workflow
Powered by Autodesk
Simulation Moldflow injection molding simulation technology,
Autodesk Simulation DFM provides real-time feedback through specific and
familiar design indicators, all while the design is still taking shape.
Green, yellow and red indicators identify potential manufacturing, cost
and sustainability concerns as a designer is creating his or her vision.
When potential problems are found, the designer receives explicit,
real-world information about the source and location of the problem so
it can be addressed as early as possible in the process.
Because Autodesk Simulation DFM works directly with the designer’s CAD
application, there is little need for additional training. The tool is
also “always on” and doesn’t require much user input: it updates
continuously, providing manufacturing feedback as quickly as the user
can create a design.
