Geometric releases version 4.1 of DFMPro for NX


The latest release enhances design review collaboration; advances and improves user experience

Mumbai, India, April 11,2016: Geometric Ltd. (BSE: 532312, NSE: GEOMETRIC) a leader in Product
lifecycle Management (PLM), Global Engineering Services and Offshore Product Development (OPD)
Solutions and Technologies, today announced the release of version 4.1 of its automated design for
manufacturability solution, DFMPro for NX software. The latest version delivers many new
customer-driven enhancements for users of NX, a leading integrated 3D computer-aided design,
manufacturing and engineering analysis (CAD/CAM/CAE) software, developed by Siemens PLM
software business.
The latest version of DFMPro, significantly speeds up the design review time with its powerful new
Microsoft Excel based reporting feature. Users can easily create, share and communicate DFM
analysis reports in Microsoft Excel format with internal teams and external manufacturing suppliers
located globally.
Additionally users designing plastic parts will get better control for moldability of a part with the
newly added Mold Wall Classification feature, which segregates between the core and cavity mold
faces.
The solution also helps improve design and manufacturing collaboration, which is becoming a top
priority for organizations today. Design reviews are conducted with teams on different aspects such
as functionality, manufacturability, serviceability and cost, to solicit their critical input during early
design stages. However, with the changing engineering landscape and cross-disciplinary teams
scattered across the globe, design reviews can be highly time-consuming, and error-prone. DFMPro
captures the rules for these multi-disciplinary aspects, thus automating the basic review.

We constantly strive to bring significant enhancements to meet the changing needs of our users,
while also ensuring that they benefit from newer functionality and ease-of-use. With the newest
version of DFMPro, we are significantly reducing the design review time for our NX users as well as
improving the productivity of designers, said Swadhin Bhide, Head of Geometry Technology
Solutions Business Unit at Geometric.
The NX Check Mate tool automates design checking and makes drafting and standards validation a
continuous, proactive process rather than an afterthought, said Joe Bohman, Vice President,
Product Engineering Software, Siemens PLM Software. The powerful manufacturability analysis
capability provided by DFMPro efficiently leverages, complements and augments Check-Mate
