Design for Manufacturing
Analysis of 3D-parts regarding manufacturing design guidelines
Product developers face a continuous growing challenge to meet functional requirements as well as the demands of the manufacturing processes when designing new products. A cast prototype or CAE simulation offer support and further insights.
But often product designers need their feedback faster!
Using Teraport’s Design for Manufacturing workbench veoCAST, designers can quickly and easily analyze their parts and minimize the risk of multiple optimization cycles due to overlooked manufacturing process demands. Fueled by the demands of our customers we developed a tool to check if the requirements of die cast manufacturing are met. By quickly and easily analyzing the often complex requirements within the design departments, problems get recognized earlier and thus optimizations are way more cost efficient.
Besides the use in design departments, more and more customers also use veoCAST in technical purchasing processes. Foundries enhance their RFQ process by the application of veoCAST in technical sales support.
- • wall thickness analysis using iso surfaces and colormaps
- • analysis of local maxima and minima
- • calculation of geometrical differences
- • projection of part geometry to a plain surface to evaluate hold down pressures
- • surface analysis (asign surfaces to the upper or lower part of the tool, analysis of draft angle)

New features version 7.1 (3/2020):
–Format support for STEP data: Load neutral STEP data from any CAD system directly into veoCAST.
–Menu option “Filter Results”: Filter existing results without the need for recalculation. The processing of the results can be subdivided spatially by the filters, e.g. by hiding certain spatial areas for the time being. Furthermore you can filter by wall thickness or ratings (see screenshot).
