SOLIDWORKS Plastics Standard Capabilities
For plastics part designers, SOLIDWORKS Plastics Standard enables you to optimize parts for manufacturability in the early stages of design. Easy to learn and use, SOLIDWORKS Plastics Standard is fully embedded within the SOLIDWORKS CAD environment so you can analyze and modify designs at the same time you optimize for form, fit, and function.
Without a proper mesh, our results can be inaccurate. SOLIDWORKS Plastics has a robust auto-mesher. It is used to create two different types of meshes: Surface and Solid.
Manufacturers of products with injection-molded parts can resolve design and tooling challenges by performing accurate mold-filling simulations using SOLIDWORKS Plastics.
When the plastic material does not completely fill the mold cavity during the injection molding process, this phenomenon is called a Short or Short Shot.
Weld lines are areas in the part when two opposing flow fronts converge. Weld lines enable you to see weaknesses in aesthetic defects.
Air traps can show you where there are issues in your model. You can see where air is trapped, causing burn marks where combustion occurs.
Different shape and size gates and runners have to be used for parts that are either cylindrical, prismatic, or family of parts.
