Predict and avoid manufacturing defects in plastic part and injection molding designs, eliminating costly rework, improving part quality, and decreasing time to market
SOLIDWORKS Plastics is the injection molding flow simulation add-in for the SOLIDWORKS CAD package. It simulates the flow of the plastic melt into the mold cavity and provides results that will help part designers, mold designers, and injection molding manufacturers validate and optimize their products. SOLIDWORKS Plastics runs in the SOLIDWORKS interface, which streamlines the workflow to make any design changes on the fly.
SOLIDWORKS Plastics can drastically reduce the chance of costly mistakes before a Mold Cavity is manufactured. Utilizing the advanced flow simulation tools can help you design efficient products and designs without the large expense of prototype testing. Modifying after a cavity is built not only causes major costs but also extensive labor to rework mold cavities. Let SOLIDWORKS Plastics help you test CAD models before manufacturing begins to ensure the best version of your design will go to production.
SOLIDWORKS Plastics Standard is the premier mold cavity testing software for part designers. It contains analysis tools to validate and optimize plastic part design for the injection molding process. This is a great tool for a plastic part designer to use to detect potential molding defects before manufacturing begins.
SOLIDWORKS Plastics Professional is the next step up in mold cavity injection testing, with features that assist mold designers and builders to optimize mold design for a consistent processing window. It includes additional tools such as multi-cavity design and runner systems to prevent costly rework by minimizing tooling adjustments.
