SolidWorks Plastics brings injection molding simulation directly to the designers of plastic parts and injection molds. The product simulates how melted plastic flows through the injection mold detecting manufacturing related defects prior to production of parts and molds. You can quickly evaluate manufacturability while you design, to eliminate costly mold rework, improve part quality, and accelerate time to market.
SolidWorks Plastics Professional
Easy to learn and use, SolidWorks Plastics Professional is fully embedded within the SolidWorks CAD environment so you can analyze and modify designs at the same time you optimize for form, fit, and function. We would recommend this product for plastic part designers to allow for part and mold optimization in early stages of design.
- CAD Integrated
- Easy to learn and use
- Facilitates design team communications
SolidWorks Plastics Premium
SolidWorks Plastics Premium gives anyone who designs or builds injection molds an accurate, easy-to-use way to optimize them. You can quickly create and analyze single-cavity, multi-cavity, and family mold layouts, including sprues, runners, and gates. You can even balance runner systems and estimate cycle time, clamp tonnage, and shot size, enabling you to optimize feed system design and avoid costly mold rework.
- Optimize feed system design
- Avoid costly mold rework
- Estimate cycle time, clamp tonnage, and shot size
