In the ever-evolving world of engineering and design, staying at the cutting edge of technology is crucial. SOLIDWORKS Plastics, a powerful tool for simulating plastic injection processes, has once again added innovative features and enhancements. SOLIDWORKS Plastics 2024 takes plastic part design and injection molding simulations to new heights.
SOLIDWORKS simulation tools can provide valuable feedback on your projects by simulating designs and manufacturing processes early in the development workflow. Using this feedback, designers can save considerable time and prevent costly redesigns that might have gone unnoticed until production started. SOLIDWORKS Plastics can help prevent common manufacturing and quality issues in injection molded parts such as weld lines.
Ever-increasing computing capabilities have allowed program developers to incorporate the fundamental engineering equations describing fluid flow into fast and accurate CFD simulation programs. CFD results allow virtual comparison of multiple design ideas and examination of the tradeoffs. In the process, the number of prototypes needed to achieve an acceptable design can be significantly reduced.
