Analyzing Silhouette Curve Options: Loop Selection

The Loop Selection option enables you to control the location of curve segments in reference to the part edges and specify which loops are included in the curve. • Loop selection: – Loops created at every shutoff location. – Status options: ♦ Included ♦ Excluded • Chain selection options: – Upper – Lower …

Sketching Insert Mold Volumes

You can swap inserts out of the same core and cavity in the mold model to produce similarly shaped parts. • Inserts are used as a cost-saving measure. • Inserts are used as a consideration for machining. Figure 2 – Viewing the Completed Insert Sketching Insert Mold Volumes Figure 1 – Viewing the Reference Model …

Sketching Slider Mold Volumes

You can sketch slider mold volumes as an alternative to calculating undercut boundaries. • Reasons to sketch slider mold volumes: – Shape – Size – Result • Sketching guidelines: – Calculate undercut boundaries for reference. – Ensure your sketched slider accounts for the entire undercut geometry. – The sketch must be closed. Figure 2 – …

Creating a Workpiece Automatically

The workpiece is a model that represents the full volume of all the mold components that are needed to create the final mold model. • The workpiece displays transparent green in the graphics window. • The automatic workpiece accuracy is automatically matched to the reference model. • The workpiece creates multiple shapes: – Standard Rectangular – Standard …

Understanding Shrinkage

You can apply shrinkage to a model to compensate for the shrinkage that tends to occur as a molded part cools. • There are two methods to apply shrinkage: – Shrinkage by Scale – Shrinkage by Dimension • Formula options: – 1+S – 1/1–S – Where S is the shrinkage …

Analyzing Mold Cavity Layout

You can create a mold model that contains multiple cavities. • The following mold cavity layout options are available: – Single – Rectangular – Circular – Variable Figure 2 – Rectangular Cavity Mold Model Layout Analyzing Mold Cavity Layout Figure 1 – Single Cavity Mold Model Layout Figure 3 – Circular Cavity Mold …

Assembling the Reference Model

The reference model usually represents the part that is to be molded. • Assemble Reference Model: – Uses a previously created model. – Uses conventional assembly placement constraints. – Matches accuracy if absolute accuracy is enabled. • You can specify the Reference Model Type. Figure 2 – Assembling the Reference …

Performing a Thickness Check

You can perform a thickness check on a part model to check for maximum or minimum thickness at specified locations. • Two methods: – Select one or more planes. – Select references to create incremental slices. • Two checks available: – Maximum thickness – Minimum thickness • Interface is slightly …

Creating Drafts Split at Surface

You can create a draft that splits at a “waistline” surface, causing material at the surface to be added. • Additional draft hinges can be created. – You must first split the draft surfaces. – Material remains the same size at both draft hinge locations. Figure 2 – Splitting the Draft at Surface Creating Drafts …
