Moldex3D Certification

Levels Analyst



Participant All Qualified Analyst that completed MCC006-MCC010 With at least two years Expert qualification
Exam Format Subject and skill tests First round: Paper evaluation Second round: Presentation at Moldex3D Conference
Exam Topic Molding knowledge and Moldex3D CAE software Contribution on molding simulation
Test Centers Moldex3D HQ and Branches Moldex3D Authorized Certification Center (MACC) Moldex3D HQ

Moldex3D Certification levels of Analyst and Expert allow the experienced CAE professionals to demonstrate and validate their knowledge of injection molding, part design and mold design with powerful Moldex3D software. The Certification Examinations are held at Moldex3D HQ and Branches, and Moldex3D Authorized Certification Center (MACC). Contact Moldex3D or MACC to register the exams.

Moldex3D Certification level of Master: Obtaining at least 2 years of Expert certificate. Exam format contains two rounds of test. First round: Submit papers or any outstanding projects that have been recognized to have impact on injection molding industry and all submitted references should be after acquiring Expert certificate. Moldex3D will review then release the result within a month. Second round: Participants who pass first round will be invited to Moldex3D conference for a presentation and will be granted Master certificate after completion.

Obtaining a Moldex3D Analyst Certificate demonstrates that you have the knowledge necessary to:

  • Validate the proper design of product
  • Know how to achieve the optimized filling
  • Know how to avoid the defects resulted from material, thickness, gate number and gate locations

You also know:

  • The effects of plastic materials and flow behavior on molding and products
  • The basics of product design and length-to-thickness ratio (L/t)


*Analyst Certificate and the attendance of Moldex3D Certification Courses (MCCs) are prerequisite.

Obtaining a Moldex3D Expert Certificate demonstrates that you have the knowledge necessary to:

  • Solve the defects due to poor mold design
  • Revise the design based on simulation results with the optimization of mold and molding parameters

You also know:

  • The injection molding cycle
  • The effects of process conditions on molding and the product
  • The basics of molding design
