Course Length: 3 daysView Dates
PrerequisitesPrerequisites: SOLIDWORKS CAD Essentials 1 and a fundamental knowledge of plastic materials, plastic part design, and/or injection mold design
Our SOLIDWORKS Plastics Training Courses teaches you how to use specialized simulation software tools to predict how melted plastic flows during the injection molding process. Predicting how the plastic will flow enables you to predict manufacturing defects such as weld lines, air traps, short shots, and sink marks. By predicting these defects, you can change the part or mold geometry, the processing conditions, or the plastic material itself to eliminate or minimize them, saving energy, material, time, and money. The SOLIDWORKS Plastics course covers all the features and functions of both SOLIDWORKS Plastics Professional (for part designers) and SOLIDWORKS Plastics Premium (for mold designers).
