What will Xometry's in-app DFM detect?
Our automated DFM (design for manufacturing) feedback within the app checks for the following:
- Oversized dimensions
- Small gaps
- Thin areas
- Supported sizes and volumes
- Sharp internal corners
- Model fidelity
- Floating parts
- Tool access
- File type

Does it mean my design cannot be produced in that process if I see DFM feedback?
Not necessarily; while we strive to make our automated DFM feedback as accurate as possible, there are instances where there may be false-positive feedback.
