The challenge in plastics part production is determining how your part or mold design impacts manufacturing and how manufacturing will impact your design, and then communicating that information early and often throughout the design-to-manufacturing process. SolidWorks Plastics gives you the tools to quickly identify potential problems during the earliest stages of design, eliminating costly mold rework, improving part quality and accelerating time to market.
Part designers get rapid feedback on how modifications to wall thickness, gate locations, materials, or geometry can affect the manufacturing of their part, while mold designers can quickly optimize multi-cavity and family mold layouts and feed systems—including sprues, runners, and gates.
