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.
