SOLIDWORKS Elite Specialists


Rapidly identify design areas that may cause fabrication issues or raise production costs using SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD, increasing the speed of your design process, enhancing productivity and saving time and money.

SOLIDWORKS DFMXpress analysis tool confirms the manufacturability of parts designed with SOLIDWORKS. You can use DFMXpress to detect design areas that could potentially cause problems during fabrication or increase production costs, and rapidly review parts with mill, drill, turning, sheet metal and injection moulding requirements.

Key Features

The features of DFMXpress include:
  • Drilled hole inspections—hole diameter-to-depth ratio, flat bottoms on holes, perpendicular entry surfaces, holes that intersect internal cavities, partial holes, tolerance tests
  • Milled feature inspections—deep pouches and slots, inaccessible features, sharp internal corners, fillets on external edges
  • Turned part inspections—minimum corner radii for turned parts, bore relief for turned parts
  • Sheet metal inspections—hole diameters vs. available tooling, hole-to-edge distance, hole spacing, bend radii
  • Regular hole size inspections—checks hole vs. available tooling
  • Injection moulding inspections—maximum and minimum wall checks
  • Checks for draft, undercuts, and advanced thickness analysis are also incorporated in SOLIDWORKS and can be located by clicking the “Evaluate” tab
  • Simulation of plastic mould filling is accessible in SOLIDWORKS Plastics
