Dassault Systemes announced the launch of SolidWorks Plastics Advanced for optimizing plastics part and injection mold designs.
In addition to all of the functionality contained in SolidWorks Plastics Premium, SolidWorks Plastics Advanced can also be used to design and analyze injection mold cooling line layouts and predict molded part warpage. This allows users to optimize cooling system design to minimize cycle times and decrease manufacturing costs, and optimize part and mold design, material selection and processing parameters to reduce or eliminate molded part warpage, the company says.
