Complex mold designs change constantly during part development. Constant import, export, and repair of data, as designers move models between part and mold design, can consume valuable design time and introduce errors and inaccuracies due to data translation. As a result, mold designers typically wait until the part design is "frozen" before they start tooling. Key SOLIDWORKS mold design capabilities include:

  • Complete plastic part and advanced surfacing design tools.
  • Geometry Import, Repair, and Healing tools.
  • Draft Analysis, Undercut Analysis, and Thickness Analysis tools.
  • Parting line tools.
  • Parting surface tools.
  • Automated "fill surface" capability for easy shutoff surface creation.
  • Core and cavity splitting tools.
  • SOLIDWORKS 3D mold bases available on-line and directly from major mold suppliers.
  • SOLIDWORKS configurations to create customizable configurations of molds and mold components.
  • Compare Part tools to visually see in 3D what geometry was added or removed when design changes occur.
  • Mold filling simulation.
  • Production quality mold drawing creation tools.
  • Seamless integrations with several industry leading CAM products allowing NC tool paths to automatically update with part design and tooling changes.
