Features

  • Real-time interface with CAD programs
    Work within Inventor 3D CAD software, SolidWorks, PTC Creo, and other supported CAD systems, and get near real-time feedback on your designs—while you’re creating them. Save time and reduce guesswork by considering ideal manufacturing conditions at every step in the design process. Check design concepts inside any part design.

  • Plastic simulation for designers
    Analyze the manufacturability, cost, and sustainability of your plastic products while you design. Consider the impact of your choices early in the process, whether you work in Inventor 3D CAD software, SolidWorks, PTC Creo, or other supported CAD systems. Get near-instant feedback on common design issues such as draft angles and sink marks. Explore “what if” scenarios like moving gate locations, material choice impact, and geometry change implications. Watch Video

  • Design material selection
    How environmentally-friendly is your choice of material? The plastic material impact indicator can tell you. Selecting a different material automatically updates the rating indicator and categorizes the material into generic grades. The indicator uses this data to measure plastic material impact and to evaluate carbon footprint, embodied energy, recyclability, and embodied water. This helps you select materials that meet your design and environmental criteria. Watch Video

  • Cost impact feedback
    Use the cost efficiency indicator to help you calculate the overall cost of your design based on factors such as mold, material, and production costs. Minimize the cost of your injection molded part early in your design process to save time, money, rework, and redesign. Watch Video

  • Manufacturing indicators for mold design
    Rely on the 3 main manufacturing indicators – manufacturability, cost efficiency, and plastic material impact – to help analyze your plastic simulation results early in your design. Analyze factors such as wall thickness, undercuts, and draft angles using your configured rule settings to make adjustments as needed, or consider redesign. Watch Video

  • Visual defect reduction
    Use the manufacturing indicator to examine weld lines, sink marks, and filling elements to evaluate the quality of your plastic parts and meet specific aesthetic and structural requirements. Preview finished parts to help determine whether you’ve met aesthetic standards. Watch Video

  • Fully configurable design rules
    Verify and meet your most important design requirements and get immediate feedback based on the design criteria you choose. Indicator tools supply quick preliminary feedback on feasibility, cost, and material choice implications. Whether your primary focus is the impact of weld lines, sink marks, undercuts, mold costs, product costs, or recyclability, you can configure design rules to support your design requirements.
