  • Interactive shell meshing technology for 2.5D modeling enabling fast
  • and accurate solutions
  • Results with figures and animations enhance communication

Create a part with complete runner and cooling system within few clicks

For conventional injection molded parts with big surface area and shell-like characteristics, Moldex3D Professional Package provides meshing tools to build 2.5D midplane(shell) models that are fast and robust to solve. In addition, the 3D model pre-processor Designer provides an automatic interface for users to build their parts with ease. Auto wizards guide you through steps of creating melt deliver systems, coolant channels and moldbases, with automated error detection. The pre-processors simplify the model creation and allow designers to validate designs efficiently.

Perform both 2.5D and 3D numerical analyses with accuracy

Moldex3D Professional Package can simulate complex 2.5D models in minutes. In addition, its powerful 3D solvers tackle complex injection-molded parts with confidence and efficiency. Designers are able to obtain in-depth knowledge and detect potential defects from comprehensive analyses. The Material Database and Process Wizard assist users to easily iterate on design changes and optimize their processes in early stages.

Generate reports automatically and present results in multiple ways

Post-processing tools enable users to demonstrate molding process and product properties with real-time contours, graphs and animation. From the automatic report generator, you benefit on quick reports and efficient communication. Moldex3D brings you confidence in your design and helps you in successful decision making.

What’s Inside Moldex3D Professional Package

Flow

Moldex3D Flow enables users to simulate the filling patterns of injection molding to help predict potential manufacturing problems, such as weld lines, air traps, short shots, sink marks, etc., and verify gate contribution for flow balance.


Pack

Moldex3D Pack incorporates the material compressibility (PVT changes) to fully simulate the density variation and melt flow behaviors during the packing process. It helps users precisely determine gate freeze time, efficient packing time and packing pressure, and warpage prediction to minimize high volumetric shrinkage.


Cool

Moldex3D Cool improves cooling system productivity and efficiency to optimize mold and cooling circuit designs and reduce cycle times, especially for complicated geometry parts simulation. Furthermore, the advanced transient cool feature is also supported to bring more accurate analyses for variotherm heating system, such as RHCM, and conformal cooling process simulation. Users can easily observe dynamic mold temperature and optimize cooling process.


Warp

Moldex3D Warp provides a reliable analysis capability to simulate the key issues of shrinkage and warpage behaviors, further controlling the blemishes of molded products.


MCM

Moldex3D MCM diversifies the development of plastic molded product. Its explicit analysis capabilities enable users to evaluate insert molding, overmolding and multi-shot sequential molding process, helps accurately observe interaction behaviors and minimize part warpage.


 

Mesh

Moldex3D Mesh supports various mesh types, including 2D triangular and quadrilateral, 3D tetrahedral, prismatic, hexagonal, voxel (brick) and pyramid meshes. Several mainstream meshing methods are available in Moldex3D Mesh: pure triangle surface meshing, quadrilateral dominate surface meshing, pure tetra generation, boundary layer meshing, pure voxel meshing, hybrid meshing method and midplane mesh extraction.


Designer

Moldex3D Designer, designers are able to verify and optimize design changes more effectively and more flexibly.


 

Viewer

Moldex3D Viewer is a standalone and free tool that visualizes Moldex3D’s analysis results. It can generate reports automatically in HTML or PowerPoint format. With its extensive visualization capabilities, users can view pros and cons of all simulations and share identification with their teams, mold makers, engineers, executives, partners, and customers.


 

Parallel Computing

all Moldex3D 3D solvers support multi-core and multi-CPU parallel computing to greatly shorten simulation time. Parallel computing can be done locally at your desktop or remotely on a computing cluster.
