Autodesk® Simulation DFM software is a revolutionary new tool that helps plastic product designers create digital prototypes with manufacturing processes in mind. Simulation DFM works within your existing 3D CAD system to provide directional feedback at a glance as you design. The easy to understand green/yellow/red indicators give you near real-time input regarding your design’s injection molding manufacturability, cost, and environmental impact.

  • 3D CAD design focused—Get manufacturability feedback upfront in the design process, as you create new CAD geometry.
  • Always on—A quick glance at the always on green/yellow/red indicator lets you know if your design change affects manufacturability, cost, environmental impact, or all 3.
  • Fast manufacturability analysis—Calculations update just as fast as your computer can compute new CAD geometry, in near real-time.
  • Multiple CAD integrations—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. Autodesk 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.
