SOLIDWORKS Plastics helps companies predict and avoid manufacturing defects in plastic part and injection mold designs, eliminating costly rework, improving quality and decreasing time to market. SOLIDWORKS Plastics delivers easy-to-use simulation for analyzing plastic parts and injection molds.
It simulates how melted plastic flows during the injection molding process to predict manufacturing-related defects so you can quickly evaluate part manufacturability, while you design.
There are three SOLIDWORKS Plastics packages:
SOLIDWORKS Plastics Standard ensures parts are manufacturable during the design process. Easy to learn and use, SOLIDWORKS Plastics Standard is fully embedded within SOLIDWORKS CAD so you can analyze and modify part designs at the same time you optimize for form, fit, and function.
SOLIDWORKS Plastics Professional builds upon SOLIDWORKS Plastics Standard to analyze mold designs. With easy-to-use tools, you can quickly analyze single- and multi-cavity, and family mold layouts including sprues, runners, and gates, to estimate cycle time, and optimize feed system design.
SOLIDWORKS Plastics Premium includes SOLIDWORKS Plastics Professional with advanced simulation functionality to analyze mold cooling line layouts, and part warpage. Optimizing cooling line minimizes cycle times and decreases manufacturing costs.
