SOLIDWORKS Plastics was created specifically for the makers of plastic products to remove the guesswork by ensuring a quality part can be produced efficiently before ever cutting steel.
Building upon SOLIDWORKS’ existing mold design features, SOLIDWORKS Plastics provides an intuitive way to predict filling patterns, reduce cycle time, and prevent a wide range of defects all within the familiar SOLIDWORKS interface.
SOLIDWORKS Plastics provides users with the tools to quickly identify potential problems and make changes early in the design process by streamlining the manufacturing process.
SOLIDWORKS Plastics predicts the manufacturability of injection molded parts, speeding up the tooling process while also improving production part quality.
SOLIDWORKS Plastics material database
contains thousands of commercial plastics and is fully customizable so users can easily find and leverage material data
Users can size the injection molding machine for a given mold, optimize cycle time, and reduce plastics material scrap for a more cost-effective design
Mold designers and mold makers can accurately analyze sprues, runners, gates to balance runner systems and optimize the part design
Mold tool designers can analyze cooling lines, baffles, and conformal cooling inserts to reduce cycle time and improve part quality.
The Getting Started Wizard helps users run their first simulation in minutes, without needing prior analysis knowledge or plastics expertise.
Web-based html reports make it fast and easy to communicate simulation results and design advice to all members of the design-to-manufacturing team
SOLIDWORKS Plastics works directly on existing .SLDPRT files inside the SOLIDWORKS user interface, displaying the impact of design changes as you go.
In nearly all types of product development—from consumer electronics and automobiles to children’s toys and medical devices—the use of components made from plastic materials has steadily increased. However, successfully producing injection-molded parts that are free of manufacturing defects is no easy feat.
With SOLIDWORKS Plastics, users will be able to tackle complex injection-molding challenges in software —reducing production delays and preventing costly mold rework.
