Design for Manufacture (DfM) Software


New member

Does anyone have any experience with any Design for Manufacture (DfM) software which either integrates into Creo, or can use the Creo model. Our requirements are that the software will interrogate the model and determine whether or not is is easy to manufacture, and would hopefully provide costs etc, if we could input size and cost of the raw material to be used. We are predominantly machined cylindrical components. I have a trial version of DfMPro, this just seems to check the model against a know set of rules, ie clearance of hole to edge, flat bottom holes etc. e

Thanks in advance
