Don’t leave injection molding to chance. Test while you design to create better plastic parts. Learn how you can simulate the injection-molding process with CAD-integrated SOLIDWORKS® Plastics to gain insight and avoid cutting steel on a five-figure doorstop.
With the average mold costing around $12,000 and in many cases exceeding $100,000, can you really afford to take a chance with your plastic parts?
Proper gate locations, weld lines, sink marks, short shots, and material selection are all critical to the successful design and manufacture of your plastic parts. Watch the video below to learn how SOLIDWORKS Plastics enables you to understand these considerations while you design.
SOLIDWORKS Plastics Software
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, improving quality, and accelerating time-to-market.
Intuitive workflow and design advice
SOLIDWORKS Plastics works directly on your 3D model, avoiding translation issues. You see the impact of design changes right away. Powerful and fast state-of-the-art meshing covers geometries from thin-walled parts to very thick and solid parts.
An intuitive interface leads you step by step. Guided analysis, intelligent defaults, and automated processes ensure correct setup, even if you rarely use simulation tools. The SOLIDWORKS Plastics material database contains thousands of commercial plastics and is fully customizable.
