SOLIDWORKS lets you develop and model very complex shapes, some of which cannot be machined. Such parts, which are mostly plastics, require processes such as injection moulding so as to be manufactured. To help with injection moulding SOLIDWORKS has the plastic add-in, which when enabled allows designers to run analyses on the entire injection moulding process. With the analyses, designers can optimize the process by varying the parameters involved.
In this tutorial, we will go through the injection moulding process. Continue reading
