Geometric Leverages Proven 3D Component Technology from
Geometric describes DFX as “Design for X” where X represents various downstream process checks related to design goals such as manufacturability, assembly, quality, serviceability, environment, or reliability. It is essential to incorporate DFX guidelines early in product development to reduce defects, minimize rework, eliminate waste, shorten time to market and save costs. Customary methods involved time consuming and costly manual checks.
Driven by the goal of developing a highly competitive solution for automated DFX verification, Geometric looked to Spatial and CGM. They recognized CGM as a flexible platform which could deliver more than traditional 3D modeling, including reliable data reuse, allowing them to optimize their engineering resources and expertise. As the kernel used in Dassault SystÈmes 3DEXPERIENCE platform, delivering industry-focused offerings such as CATIA Mechanical Design, SOLIDWORKS Mechanical Conceptual and SIMULIA Results Explorer, Geometric recognized CGM as a modeler which has proven itself in leading-edge applications.
“Geometric has been providing DFX solutions integrated with various leading CAD platforms. However, there has been a growing need in the market for a single validation platform for customers working in a multi-CAD environment. Geometric DFX offers this platform as a single point solution to the design community,” said Sameer Kondejkar, Sr. Director and Head, Geometry Technology Solutions Business at Geometric. “Taking advantage of the verified technology of CGM and the ability to seamlessly access data, our development teams were able to focus on the core functionality of Geometric DFX, reduce development expenses, and provide higher quality of results.”
“Geometric represents a growing number of companies which are more aggressively pushing limits within their respective industries and are looking beyond traditional modeling components to provide competitive differentiation,” said
