Skin Distribution and Overflow Setting

In Moldex3D R11, we provide some new features including the skin thickness distribution result and overflow setting.

Overflow region setting

In Moldex3D R11, it supports overflow settings in Moldex3D Mesh. Here are the procedures of the setting:

1. Create an overflow region solid mesh and assign its attribute as “Overflow Solid Mesh.”


2. Export Solid Model


3. Import the model in Moldex3D project and open the Filling/Packing settings subpage. Under “Advanced Setting”, we can set the overflow open time. For example, in Figure 5, overflow valve was open at the time of 4 seconds.

Machine Interface

There are four simple steps to activate the machine interface in Moldex3D (Figure 6):

1. Select machine mode 2 at the “Project Setting” tab.
2. Choose an arbitrary NISSEI Machine from the machine database.
3. Click “Machine Interface”.
4. Go to Filling/Packing Settings page, launch machine interface.

After the interface window was opened (Figure 7), all the settings are exactly the same with the real machine. It’s then very straightforward to covert process conditions in Moldex3D and real world back and forth.
