Injection molding analysis is a very important analysis to perform before mold construction. Knowing your results before first shots can differentiate a successful product from an unsuccessful one.
In a Mold Filling analysis, Shadow generates the proposed part geometry in either 2.5-D shell or 3-D solid tetrahedral elements. We model the complete runner system including the type (hot/cold), size and location. Then, as needed, we will modify the design to develop a more advantageous layout to optimize the manufacturing performance during the first stage of fill.
