SOLIDWORKS PLASTICS

SOLIDWORKS Plastics Software combines injection molding simulation with advanced CAE analysis to give plastics designers the capability to predict just how melted plastic flows during the injection molding process.

WHY CHOOSE

SOLIDWORKS Plastics?

SOLIDWORKS Plastics brings injection molding simulation directly to designers of plastic parts and injection molds. You don’t have to be an expert to easily identify and address potential defects by making changes to the part or mold design, plastics material, or processing parameters, saving resources, time, and money.

COST OF CHANGE

While the cost of making changes is low in the early stages of product development, the impact is highest. The sooner you can optimize your plastic parts and injection molds for manufacturability, the better.

The challenge in plastics part production is determining how your part or mold design impacts manufacturing and how manufacturing will impact your design, and then communicating that information early and often throughout the design-to-manufacturing process.

SOLIDWORKS Plastics gives you the tools to quickly identify potential problems so you can make changes early in the design process.
