In this tutorial, you learned about the simulations that can be performed in Inventor Mold Design. These simulations are designed to provide you with suggestions on how you can design your mold assembly. It is recommended that you adapt these suggestions to suit the specific usage, appearance, and tooling restrictions of the plastic part.
You learned how to:
- Perform a simulation to suggest gate locations in the model.
- Manually modify suggested gate locations.
- Run a simulation to provide suggested process settings for the model.
- Run a Part Fill Analysis and review the graphical results.
- Use the Examine Results command to review specific areas of the model.
- Use the Part Shrinkage command to predict the amount of material shrinkage.
- Use the Parting Diagnostics command to evaluate the parting surfaces on the core and cavity.
Learn how to incorporate inserts for sliders and lifters in the Mold Structural Assembly tutorial. You can then create gates, runners, and cooling channel components, and place the mold base.
