Moldex3D Professional offers all the functionality of Moldex3D eDesign together with additional capabilities for more in-depth analysis and a wider set of applications.
Boundary Layer Mesh (BLM)
Advanced yet robust meshing is key to obtaining high fidelity results from challenging simulations. Consequently, Moldex3D Professional contains an advanced BLM (Boundary Layer Mesh) module with Non-Matching mesh technology to provide more flexibility when modelling parts and molds.
This unique capability enables different element types and mesh configurations to be applied to various components of the injection molding model, including cavities, part inserts, runners and cooling channels. Although Moldex3D will conveniently define a suitable surface mesh and layer configuration by default for reliable results, users can also further adjust settings, such as mesh size, number of boundary layers and offset ratios, to create the ideal mode for their requirements – balancing accuracy and speed.
Furthermore, Moldex3D permits non-matching meshes between components for all standard analysis types, including flow, pack, cool and warp, with the solver handling the contact interfaces automatically. This is a highly valuable time-saving feature, benefiting the user by reducing mesh preparation time and effort.
3D Coolant CFD
Cooling performance can be critical within injection molding when improving quality and cycle time. Moldex3D’s 3D Coolant CFD solver predicts flow behaviour within conformal and variable cooling channels to help design an efficient thermal system. This includes identification of areas of stagnant or “dead” flow, potentially caused by cooling channel size changes. It can also accurately simulate Rapid Heat Cycle Molding (RHCM) systems.
