Expert MoldbaseExtension allows users to quickly and accurately simulate the injection molding of plastic parts within Creo Parametric™. This tool allows designers to identify potential problems, optimize designs, and improve the manufacturability of their products.
Plastic part designers need immediate access to reliable and easy-to-understand analysis data to gain insights into manufacturability and to optimize part design. Failure to do so can result in costly mold reworks, excess material usage, mold debugging trials, and increased time to market for final products. The Creo Mold Analysis Extension allows users to quickly and accurately analyze and optimize designs that are manufactured by injection molding.
The capabilities within the Creo Mold Analysis Extension give analysts and designers deep insight into plastic flow behaviors. This powerful tool gives users the ability to run injection molding analyses for design verification and optimization within Creo Parametric, resulting in reduced mold re-engineering costs and late-cycle design changes.
