Key Benefits

Simulation-Driven Design for Plastic Part Production

  • Simulate how melted plastic flows during the injection molding process
  • Predict how molds will fill, identify if there will be any air traps or voids, and determine where parting or weld lines will be
  • Make manufacturing modifications a thing of the past by delivering accurate designs the first time
  • Confer with moldmakers and manufacturing colleagues anywhere in the world
  • Determine the best gate locations during the design phase with accuracy

Capabilities

Easy-To-Use Injection Molding Simulation

NO TRANSLATION REQUIRED

Fully embedded in SOLIDWORKS, and associative with native SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD Models.

EXTENSIVE MATERIAL DATABASE

Includes over 4,000 commercially available plastic parts with the necessary melt data to simulate them. Just pick the one you need!

SIMPLIFIED, AUTOMATIC MESHING

Robust mesher generates shell and solid mesh types and automatically supports global and local mesh refinements.

FILLING PHASE SIMULATION

Output fill time plots almost instantaneously to identify weld lines and air traps, as well as overall fill times.

SINK MARK ANALYSIS

Analyze the simulated part for areas prone to sink marks or excessive shrinkage during the cooling phase.

AUTOMATIC GATE LOCATION

Not sure where to put the gate? SOLIDWORKS Plastics can determine the best place with its automatic gate location command.

What People Are Saying

If we didn’t have SOLIDWORKS Plastics, we wouldn’t have as much confidence in the manufacturability of a design. It helps us avoid going back and forth with the moldmaker after the fact, which saves time and reduces costs.
