Key Features & Benefits
Direct generation of high quality mixed-type mesh in HyperMesh: Moldex3D accepts tetrahedral, hexagon, prism, pyramid mesh and a mixture of them. It allows users to apply the best element types to obtain quality analysis results efficiently.
Automatic mesh generation in Moldex3D Designer: Generates mesh with variant density automatically to satisfy different requirements in analysis speed and accuracy.
Versatile material database: Supports thousands of grades of plastic materials. It also allows users to build their customized database by importing and editing from existing materials.
Complete simulation capabilities: Provides all the necessary simulation functions for filling, packing, cooling and warpage analyses. It supports thermoset, fiber-filled materials and multiple-component molding as well.
Highly accurate analysis results: Famous for its advanced true 3D kernel to capture the crucial process characteristics, such as shear heating, runner imbalance, mold cooling, etc. Moldex3D also predicts 3D fiber orientation of fiber-reinforced material under molding effects. It can therefore accurately predict detailed warpage behavior for complex engineering products.
Realistic multi-shot process simulation: Simulates the interactions in multi-shot processes, such as insert molding and two-color molding. It includes the thermal effects of the previous shot(s) on the later shot(s). It also considers the anisotropic material properties for the cases such with fiber-reinforced material.
Fully transient thermal simulation: Simulates the mold temperature dynamics realistically. It calculates the time-dependent thermal interactions among cavities, hot runners, heaters and cooling lines. Therefore, it simulates the special cooling process (Variotherm) and the molds with special electric heaters.
Advanced material property prediction: Supports advanced viscoelastic models to accurately predict flow-induced residual stress. It also predicts the refractive indexes, fringed patterns and birefringence to help users design better optical parts.
Advanced process simulation: Simulates special and advanced processes such as optical molding, gas-assisted injection molding and reactive injection molding, etc.
High performance parallel computing: Supports multi-core, multi-CPU and multi-PC parallel computation. By using native domain decomposition approach, Moldex3D shows excellent speed up as the number of CPU-core increases.
Interfaces with structural CAE: Interfaces with major general-purpose CAE by exporting its process-induced results, such as part temperature, cavity pressure, fiber orientation, residual stress, anisotropic material properties, etc.
