entry for the tutorial challenge.

  1. Step 1:

    open the mold in which you want to create the mold in
    then activate the "MoldflowXpress" option.
    and click NEXT in the Welcome tab.
    in this tab u will be given the info about the what kind of geometry will be used in this simulation.

  2. Step 2:

    choose the injection point for the mold.
    the marked icon gives tips and hints.

  3. Step 3:

    select the material from which the model should be made.
    solidworks gives us 20 predefined materials.

  4. Step 4:

    give the conditions of the melting temp and mold temp.

  5. Step 5:

    click run in the next tab to run the mold flow simulation.

  6. Step 6:

    you can see the how the mold gets filled in the mold

  7. Step 7:

    after the simulation running is over the results are shown.
    we have a green light that means that mold is nice.
    but if we get other lights then we have to change the injection point or some other properties of the mold an again run the simulation.

  8. Step 8:

    there will be some advice given by the Solidwoks system.
