Certification Level Instructions

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. For more information about the relevant courses and exams, please refer to Moldex3D Training Schedule.

Moldex3D Certification level of Master: Candidates must obtain an Expert certificate and the prepares materials including:

  • Applicants should first fill in the written application form. The content includes outstanding deeds, use of Moldex3D related works, goodwill.
  • The deeds and works mentioned in the application must provide proof and allow the relevant works to be used publicly (official media promotion. advertising printing…)
  • Provide 2 or more recommendation letters (third-party industry executives or academic professors)
  • The content of the above submitted application will be reviewed and decided by the “Moldex3D Master Certification Committee” after the preliminary information is approved.

Moldex3D Analyst and expert certification course content

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)


Participants of Moldex3D Expert certification must first obtain *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.
