On-demand Webinar: Digital Transformation 2021 Series- m3d srl: Moldex3D-Catia Combination To Provide The “Counter-Deformation” Model
It happens many times that the focus of flow analyzes is centered on the deformations of the model. The reason can be an aesthetic or mechanical nature, perhaps because the particular studied must be assembled with other details. It becomes essential to minimize the warpage and when this is impossible, we can use the “counter-deformation”.
In agreement with the mould maker, the original model is modified on the basis of the outputs identified with Moldex3D, in order to minimize the deformations. An important help is Catia’s advanced surface module which automatically deforms of cavity skin of the model. The designer work however is onerous because he has to keep everything in line with the molding axis and remove any undercuts. Before proceeding with mould design it is necessary to check with a new flow analysis about the modified geometry.
