Sharply Reducing Pre-processing Time in Half 

While Maintaining The Highest Accuracy

Achieve High-quality Runner Mesh in Significantly Less Time

Runner modeling is critical to simulation accuracy. New Moldex3D runner meshing technology enables automatic generation of hexahedral meshes to reduce time and manual effort required to obtain a high-quality mesh as well as the intended geometric shape.



Generate a Complete Mold Mesh Faster and Easier

Automatic creation of non-matching mesh connections between part and part insert /mold base to obtain simulation results faster with minimal effort. Learn more>>



One Platform to Speed Up Simulation Workflow and Efficiency

Moldex3D Studio offers you a choice to streamline all phases of your simulation workflow- from pre-processing to post-processing onto an intuitive, ribbon-style interface. The new platform also enables users to compare various design iterations simultaneously to shorten product development time.

Enhanced In-mold Decoration (IMD) Simulation

Boundary condition type is now available in the pre-processor to help you prepare decoration layers for simulation faster without a ton of manual effort. The new “Wash-out Index” feature will enable designers to better predict washout of the ink of the decoration film to ensure successful decorative products.



Fully Coupled Process Simulation to Satisfy Specific Needs for High-precision Plastic Parts

Users can perform high-end simulations to enable more realistic results using the new Fully Coupled Process Simulation technology, which can run Flow/Pack/Cool/Warp solvers simultaneously to yield optimal accuracy.



Continuing Advancements in Simulation for

Lightweight, High-performance Plastic Products

New Simulation Capability for Polyurethane (PU) Chemical Foaming Process

In addition to the already existing microcellular foaming process analysis, Moldex3D R15.0 introduces new capability for simulation of polyurethane (PU) chemical foaming process, enabling product engineers to predict the density distribution of the final part before production, ensuring a desired volume-to-weight ratio. Learn more>>



Extended Simulation Capability for Compression Molding of Sheet Molding Compound (SMC)

Moldex3D R15.0 also includes enhancements in the compression molding analysis of sheet molding compound (SMC) to enable a more accurate simulation of the full compression molding process- going from solid to molten and back to solid state, through a tighter integration between Moldex3D and LS-DYNA.
