The paper provides a method to integrate Design for Welding (DFW) method with CAD systems. The method is based on three main phases: (i) definition of DFW rules for the development of mechanical products, (ii) link of DFW rules with product geometrical features that are available by the investigation of the 3D model, and (iii) integration with CAD systems to support product design review. A method and a software tool are described including their features to help designers in the product development process. Case study aims to validate the proposed method in the identification of assembly issues early in the product development process. The CAD-based DFW tool is a useful assistant to avoid design problems related to the welding technology.
