SOLIDWORKS PLASTICS

SOLIDWORKS Plastics makes it easy for companies that design plastic parts or injection molds to predict and avoid manufacturing defects during the earliest stages of design, eliminating costly rework.

 

INJECTION MOLDING SIMULATION FOR SOLIDWORKS

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 FEATURES

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.

  • ACCURATE MOLD FILLING

    SOLIDWORKS Plastics predicts the manufacturability of injection molded parts, speeding up the tooling process while also improving production part quality.

  • LARGE MATERIAL DATABASE

    SOLIDWORKS Plastics material database
    contains thousands of commercial plastics and is fully customizable so users can easily find and leverage material data

  • REDUCE MATERIAL WASTE

    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

  • OPTIMIZE FEED SYSTEM DESIGN

    Mold designers and mold makers can accurately analyze sprues, runners, gates to balance runner systems and optimize the part design

     

  • COOLING LINE ANALYSIS

    Mold tool designers can analyze cooling lines, baffles, and conformal cooling inserts to reduce cycle time and improve part quality. 

  • EASY TO USE AND LEARN

    The Getting Started Wizard helps users run their first simulation in minutes, without needing prior analysis knowledge or plastics expertise.

  • FACILITATES DESIGN TEAM COMMUNICATION

    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

  • INTEGRATED DESIGN & VALIDATION

    SOLIDWORKS Plastics works directly on existing .SLDPRT files inside the SOLIDWORKS user interface, displaying the impact of design changes as you go.

High-Quality, Plastic Injection Molded Parts with SOLIDWORKS

SOLIDWORKS Plastics will help you resolve injection-molding challenges in software—rather than through costly, time-consuming mold rework.

Avoid Defects in Your Plastic Part & Injection Mold Designs

Successfully producing injection-molded parts that are free of manufacturing defects is no easy feat.

Get Savvy With Your Plastic Part Designs in SOLIDWORKS

By simulating how melted plastic flows during the injection molding process, designers can make better material choices from day one.
