NX Molded Part Validation

Brief Summary of Webinar:

Can the part be molded?
The sooner a design is checked for manufacturability the sooner problems can be fixed. Engineers using NX CAD engaged in the Mold or Parts designing from any industry are often confronting problems such as:

  • How do decide the gate location to avoid a short shot?
  • How to decide the tooling draw direction to minimize the slider and tool cost?
  • How to validate the feasibility of plastic parts for mold design.

Tool that will be covered:

  • NX Molded part validation


NX offers a range of tools that help you assess the moldability of plastic parts. These validations and analysis tools are intended for use by designers in the early stages of product development and are fully integrated with NX design functions.

This software utility can:

  • Ensure part and tooling design quality by automated checking draft angles, undercuts and crossover faces that affect moldability.
  • Validate molded parts by checking wall thickness. Results are displayed in easily interpreted color-coded areas on the part model.
  • The designer with an easy visual check of core and cavity sides that doesn’t require any special analysis or knowledge of mold design.

Who should attend?
It is for Designers engaged in Product Design or Mold Design Industry and the following can attend:

  • Design Engineers
  • Design Managers
  • Design Heads

Post the session, the participants will be able to:

  • Use NX Wall thickness check analysis.
  • The designer can check draft angles, undercuts and crossover faces that affect moldability.
  • Visual check of core and cavity sides and parting line.
