3DEXPERIENCE PLASTICS simulates how melted plastic flows during the injection molding process to predict manufacturing-related defects on plastic parts in the fully CAD-integrated, cloud-compute environment of the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform. Users can quickly evaluate manufacturability while they design, to eliminate costly redesigns, improve part quality, and accelerate time-to-market. Plastic part designers can analyze and modify designs while optimizing for form, fit, and function. Mold tool designers can optimize the feed system and cooling circuit designs. Specialist users can link to structural and process apps to tackle advanced workflows.
3DEXPERIENCE PLASTICS is built to handle complex mold layouts, runner systems, and cooling line layouts, providing you the detailed simulation analytics of complicated and costly manufacturing processes. You will be able to optimize design, materials, and process parameters and minimize cycle time, manufacturing, and rework costs.
“We chose a
EXPERIENCE Works Simulation solution because it’s cloud-based, which supports our remotely located engineering organization, works seamlessly with SOLIDWORKS design data, and incorporates the Abaqus Explicit solver, which is best suited for the types of simulation studies that we need to conduct on our parts, which can involve hyperelasticity, creep, fatigue, and contact.”
