SOLIDWORKS Plastics brings easy-to-use injection moulding simulation directly to the designers of plastic parts and injection moulds, as well as advanced CAE analysis. It simulates how melted plastic flows during the injection moulding process to predict manufacturing-related defects on parts and moulds. You can quickly evaluate manufacturability while you design, to eliminate costly mould rework, improve part quality, and accelerate time to market. A Results Adviser provides troubleshooting steps and practical design advice to help diagnose and avoid potential problems.
SOLIDWORKS Plastics Standard
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 analyse and modify designs at the same time you optimize for form, fit, and function.
SOLIDWORKS Plastics Professional
SOLIDWORKS Plastics Professional gives anyone who designs or builds injection moulds an accurate, easy-to-use way to optimize them. You can quickly create and analyse single-cavity, multi-cavity, and family mould layouts, including sprues, runners, and gates. You can even balance runner systems and estimate cycle time, clamp tonnage, and shot size, enabling you to optimize feed system design and avoid costly mould rework.
SOLIDWORKS Plastics Premium
SOLIDWORKS Plastics Premium includes everything in SOLIDWORKS Plastics Professional plus advanced simulation functionality that allows CAE analysts and mold designers to analyse mould cooling line layouts and predict moulded part warpage. Users can design and analyse simple or complex mould cooling line layouts, optimize cooling system design to minimize cycle times and decrease manufacturing costs and optimize part and mould design, material selection and processing parameters to reduce or eliminate moulded part warpage.
