From Mold Design to Machining all integrated within SOLIDWORKS

Tuesday December 3, 2013 at 5:33pm
Mold design is relatively simple in SOLIDWORKS with the use of Surface Modelling and Mold Tool commands. These are just two advance courses we train customers in using core functionality of the Software but the workflow and extensions beyond this are vast thanks to the suite of SOLIDWORKS products.
 
We are able to not only design the product in SOLIDWORKS, but run Plastics to Simulate the filling phase, design the mold and then machine it with SolidCAM.
 
1) Design in SOLIDWORKS
 
2) Simulate filling in SOLIDWORKS Plastics
SOLIDWORKS Plastics can be used to simulate the mold filling process and help determine the best gate locations, in addtion to knowing wether the part will fill correctly and where weld lines and sink locations will occur.
 
3) Mold Design in SOLIDWORKS
Mold desingers are able to check through validation tools including draft, thickness and undercuts to ensure the geometry is correct for molding
 
 
4) Machine in SOLIDWORKS with SolidCAM
SolidCAM is a fully intergrated Gold Partner add-in to SOLIDWORKS and the tool paths generated are associative to the model which will facilitate updates allowing the NC data to remain correct and accurate should design chnages occur
