How to use mold tools?
Hello, I have this project for school. We need to model the injection of a plastic object in moldflow, but first of all, have to draw it in Solidworks and model the matrix with the help of mold tools. I just drew a pen holder, but I can't make a matrix out of it, and I don't really understand why. The parting line just wouldn't go where I imagined it would (that is 20 mm above the bottom), it doesn't want to create a parting surface, in order to create a core and a cavity. Can you help me with this, please? What am I doing wrong?
Hi, there is a tutorial about mold tool: http://grabcad.com/questions/how-to-make-a-mold-tool
I've just tried that, but I guess that android was empty... +, if you check my part, you will see that I have gaps inside my model, that means complicate geometry... I really can't handle it, and I thought that somebody could just give me some tips on this kind of geometries. Thank you, anyway.
I didn't see anything about a matrix but this may help.
