Moldex3D hosts monthly webinars on a range of topics. From the basics of injection molding analysis, advanced molding simulation skills to tips and tricks that speak to the common challenges facing our users. We hope that you can walk away from these sessions with new ideas on how to put simulation into practice and make an immediate impact on your design and manufacturing.
A Hands-on Guide to Moldex3D iSLM
02 November 2022, Wednesday, 4 PM SGT
During the life cycle of plastic injection molding, conducting mold flow analysis and on-site mold tryout is an indispensable procedure. But it often brings about unneeded time and labor consumption when co-workers exchange information between them. To have an efficient way to transfer data, Moldex3D iSLM offers specialized functions to upload mold flow analysis file. It will display data automatically and systematically, being a powerful assistant for users grasping and managing the mold flow analysis data. When it starts on-site mold tryout, an enormous amount of data will be generated, iSLM also builds functions for users to upload and generate reports. To sum it up, iSLM achieves a one-stop service for users collecting both simulation and reality data. It will save time and labor consumption for communicating and building a comprehensive plastic injection molding database simultaneously. Eventually, being crucially fundamental of future design and manufacturing for your organization.
Non-linear Warp: Causes and Solutions
21 June 2022, Wednesday, 4 PM SGT
In most structural analysis calculations, to quickly obtain the deformation of the structure due to external forces or temperature changes, we use linear structural analysis instead of the time-consuming iterative method. However, nonlinear structural analysis through the iterative method can consider the influence of displacement on the structure or external force, which cannot be achieved by linear structural analysis. Therefore, it is necessary to obtain nonlinear results.
Moldex3D supports a Nonlinear Warp analysis solver (large deformation), which provides users with the analysis of finite deformation and geometric nonlinearity (material nonlinearity considerations require other integration features). The figure below describes the differences between nonlinear and linear structural analysis. When there is a thin beam or thin-shell structure in the geometry, and when the deformation is large, it is usually recommended to apply nonlinear warping analysis.
In this webinar, we will get some brief idea of what nonlinear warp (large deformation in Moldex3D) is and how to set up a simulation for nonlinear structural analysis.
