Autodesk Simulation DFM

Autodesk Simulation DFM (Design for Manufacturing) software, described as the industry’s first real-time injection moulding simulation software that provides real-time feedback, has been launched.

The CAD software plug-in is aimed at providing designers of plastic parts with a faster and easier way to determine the impact of design decisions on manufacturability, cost and sustainability concerns.

Based on Autodesk Labs technology also known as Project Krypton, Autodesk Simulation DFM integrates with Autodesk Product Design Suite software, and specifically Autodesk Inventor software, and provides a complementary technology to Autodesk Simulation Moldflow software.

It 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 Kross, senior vice president for 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.'
