You can view information about your mold model any time you are in Mold mode by clicking Info > Mold. You can view the following types of information about the mold:
• BOM – Displays a bill of materials of all components found in the mold model.
• Components – Displays information on all the components in the mold model, including reference models, workpiece, extracted components, and the molding.
• Cavity Layouts – Displays information on all cavity layouts. You can view the coordinate system references used for placement of the cavity, the layout type, the number of cavities in respective directions, the names and locations of each cavity, and the overall workpiece size.
• Split Volumes – Displays all volumes created in the mold model as a result of split operations. You can view the mold volume name, its display status in the mold model, and its feature ID.
• Created Volumes – Displays information on all sketched mold volumes in the mold model. You can view the mold volume name, its display status in the mold model, and its feature ID.
• Parting Surf – Displays information on all parting surfaces created in the mold model. You can view the parting surface name, its display status in the mold model, and its feature ID.
• Split – Displays all the split operations performed in the mold model. You can view the parent and child feature ID’s of the split, the parting surface used, and the resulting volumes created.
• Last Volume – Displays the last created volume in the mold model. You can view the mold volume name, how it was created, its display status in the mold model, and its feature ID.
• Shrinkage – Displays any shrinkage applied to the reference model. If the mold model contains more than one reference model, you must specify for which reference model you want shrinkage information. You can view the coordinate system specified for the shrinkage, the shrinkage formula used, and the shrink factors used.
You can specify whether you want the output displayed in an Information window within Creo Parametric, whether you want it written to a file, or both
