This result is generated at the end of a Midplane Gas-assisted Fill+Pack analysis.
Using this result
The part weight is calculated by multiplying the filled volume at a time step by the polymer density. The analysis provides the weight of the polymer being injected into the cavity as a function of time. After gas injection, the part weight will remain constant, since the weight contributed by the gas is negligible.
The Total design weight:XY Plot result is used to verify whether the amount of material used to create the part meets the design specifications of the part.
Things to look for
- Run separate analyses with different process settings to compare the effect this has on the amount of material used to create the part.
