In this tutorial, you discover how to place multiple components in the Mold Design environment. After placing multiple components, you will use patterning functionality to pattern each of the components that were placed in the mold assembly. The tutorial progresses through the standard mold workflow. This tutorial is intended to provide an overview of the features and functions of the Inventor Mold Design application. The example uses a simplified part and is intended to depict concepts and procedures - it is not intended as a primer in good mold design. After completing this tutorial, you will be able to:
- Use Inventor Mold Design to create a family mold consisting of multiple moldable parts.
- Adjust the orientation and position of components placed in the Mold Design environment.
- Assign the material and its shrinkage value.
- Generate the core and cavity for the moldable parts.
- Use patterning functionality to generate multiple components quickly in the mold assembly.
- Define the runner system, the gates, and the mold base for the mold assembly.
