Next-gen molding simulation solutions designed to pave the way for smart design and manufacturing with realistic simulations, critical insights.
|Get Closer to Real-world Manufacturing|
Bringing Simulation One Step Closer to Reality
Using the newly released Moldex3D R17, engineers can better integrate the physical world into the digital world to accurately reflect real-world manufacturing conditions in simulations.
Simulate Real-World Machine Response
Since machine response varies from one machine to another, Moldex3D R17 enables users to consider the dynamic characteristics of an injection molding machine in simulations to more closely represent the real world conditions. The optimized processing conditions obtained from the simulation can then be directly applied on the shop floor, bridging the gap between simulation and manufacturing.
Predict Barrel Effects on Melt Behaviors
With barrel compression functionality, users can simulate the compression behavior inside the barrel and nozzle to take into account its effect on material compressibility when injecting into the cavity, producing a more accurate injection pressure prediction.

More Realistic Modeling of Material Behaviors
and Molding Processes
Moldex3D has always inspired continual innovation in simulation. In R17, Moldex3D presents new capabilities with a higher level of accuracy, which enable engineers to make confident predictions of actual material behaviors and molding processes, taking a significant step forward in shaping the future of plastics molding.
Flat Fiber Orientation Simulation
The fiber orientation simulation capability has now been extended to support a new filler type—flat fibers. The fiber orientation analysis for flat fibers will enable greater design freedom and help achieve better mechanical properties and improved dimensional stability.
Consider Expansion Ratio in PU Chemical Foaming Analysis
Moldex3D Material Lab provides comprehensive material testing services for characterizing the expansion ratio of the polyurethane foam, enabling users to consider the expansion ratio in the PU Chemical Foaming analysis, achieving greater accuracy in predicting foam height and shape, to ultimately achieve a more optimal foaming process.
Fluid-assisted Injection Molding with Push Back Simulation
Moldex3D GAIM and WAIM modules now support simulating push back by visualizing how the melt is pushed by the gas/water back into the molding machine barrel. With R17, users can better investigate the gas/water penetration behaviors to produce hollow, lightweight parts, reducing material waste and providing better surface quality than the short-shot method.
