This tutorial addresses the steps, following meshing, that are required before a model can be analyzed.
Up to this point, we have concentrated on ensuring that the model imported into Autodesk Simulation Moldflow Insight is meshed correctly and is free of errors. It is a critical step, as the quality of the analysis depends upon a quality mesh. There are several other steps required before a model can be analyzed and these will be covered in this tutorial.
In this task, you will select the molding process and the analysis sequence, that is, the series of analyses that will be performed.
In this task, you will select a molding material.
In this task you will complete the steps required to duplicate a cavity manually.
In this task, you will use the Cavity Duplication Wizard to duplicate the part to produce a four-cavity layout.
In this task, you will use the Runner System Wizard to design a runner system for the four-cavity layout you created in the previous task.
In this task, you will design a simple cooling circuit layout using the Cooling System Wizard.
In the previous tasks, you prepared the tutorial model for analysis. You selected a material, designed a multi-cavity mold, and modeled the runner system and cooling system.
This tutorial has given you an overview of the basic steps required to prepare a mold for analysis and review the analysis results.
