By conducting DFM checks throughout the design phase you can find errors in time, which means you do not have to make last-minute corrections.

DesignTrue DFM

DesignTrue DFM Ecosystem connects you directly with the world’s leading manufacturers, and you can easily find and implement specific constraints.

Real-Time Interactive3D

All customer products are in 3D, and therefore it makes it can be helpful to view your design in 3D as well. This feature eliminates you going back and forth between 2D and 3D, and lets you work on the design directly in 3D viewing.
