This course is designed to build upon SOLIDWORKS Plastics – Part Validation for engineers involved with the design of injection mold tools. Attendees will learn supplemental skills for performing a more comprehensive molding simulation and validating features such as runner systems and cooling lines. Topics include gate analysis, runner balancing, and cooling line analysis for improved prediction of cycle time and part warpage.
PREREQUISITES: SOLIDWORKS Essentials and a fundamental knowledge of plastic materials, plastic part design, and/or injection mold design
