CoreTech System (Moldex3D) announced the official release of Moldex3D R12.0, its plastic design validation and optimization software for injection molding simulation. This release brings several enhancements for the solution's troubleshooting capabilities, analysis accuracy, user friendliness, and calculation efficiency, the company says.
The new release supports more special shaped gates, runners, and runner ends, such as cashew gate with arc geometry, tapered ejector pins, or lock pin design. The enhancements on mesh quality and density allow users to build more realistic 3D mesh of complicated runner systems, further increasing the accuracy of plastic modeling and simulation. Moldex3D R12.0 also supports the auto re-meshing capability when a gate location changes. Additionally, users now can directly import a CAD model in Parasolid format.
The update also introduces the industrial geometry healing technology developed by Elysium. This tool, Moldex3D CADdoctor, enables multi-CAD data exchange, geometry simplification and verification, quality check, etc. When users generate Boundary Layer Mesh (BLM), they can automatically check and fix poor-quality geometry.
The company has reinforced its troubleshooting capabilities in the solver kernels, such as flow behavior visualization, cooling optimization, fiber orientation, stress evaluation, injection compression molding simulation, encapsulation molding simulation, etc. The advancements will result in more accurate simulations of standard or special plastics injection molding processes
The Report Wizard allows fully-customized reports. Users can select analysis result items and export them into PPT, PDF, or HTML format.
