A family mold has cavities for components of an assembly that need to fit together after ejection from the mold. Each of the cavities for filling with hot liquid plastic can have different volumes. Part of a mold designer’s responsibility
Learn about predicting sink marks in SolidWorks Plastics. We review some rib design tips that can help mitigate sink marks at the junction of the wall and the rib (from Clive Maier’s book). QuickTips video presented by Tony Botting of
What is SolidWorks Plastics? SolidWorks Plastics is a new offering from SolidWorks and is aimed at helping plastic part designers and injection mold makers avoid common defects that show up during the manufacturing process. As with most SolidWorks products, Plastics
SolidWorks Plastics brings injection molding simulation directly to the designers of plastic parts and injection molds. Designers can evaluate the manufacturability of parts and molds at the same time they can design for form, fit, and function.
