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.
What’s New in Moldex3D
Webinar: RTM Simulation by Connecting Resin Flow with Preforming Process
The resin transfer molding (RTM) process can efficiently produce composite materials reinforced by continuous fibres and is often applied to products where lightweight strength components are required. This molding method consists of two molding processes: ‘Preforming’ and ‘Impregnation’. The manufacturing conditions need to be carefully set due to concerns about unintended problems such as defects, residual stresses and warping and so on. We have developed techniques to predict those problems through simulation.
This Webinar consists of two talks. Firstly, technique for analyzing the preforming of dry fabrics is presented. Not only changes in fibre orientation after shaping, but also the associated changes in the permeability coefficients, which has a strong influence on the subsequent resin infusion process, can be predicted.
The analysis techniques for the resin injection process are then presented. Resin flow analysis is carried out while taking into account the change in fibre orientation determined by the preforming process as an anisotropic permeability coefficient distribution. By carrying out these series of coordinated analyses, you will be able to predict the quality of your RTM molded product without excessive reliance on actual tests.
Webinar: Moldiverse: The Cloud Ecosystem Elevating Your Molding Simulation
In plastic injection molding process, several critical factors must be considered. Material property, injection molding machine process parameters, and the level of expertise all interact and have an effect on the final production outcome.
To elevate the quality of your simulation and injection molded parts, Moldex3D launched the cloud platform, Moldiverse, as an ecosystem offering material databank, smart molding solutions, online learning resources, and trial software. The material databank, Material Hub Cloud, offers more than 8,700 thermoplastics and you can find, compare, look for alternative materials with just a few clicks. iMolding Hub provides machine characterization that allows your simulation to take into account the actual machine’s response and potentially reduce the number of mold trials. University, the online learning resources hub, provides Moldex3D software training, plastic E-learning, and on-demand webinars, all can be accessed anytime, anywhere.
Join the webinar to find out what Moldiverse can bring you to make your simulation smarter, faster, and more elevated.

Webinar: Understanding How Moldex3D Solvers are Interlinked
When setting up a simulation workflow, it is important to understand how the solvers are interlinked. There are 4 commonly used solvers in the Moldex3D software: Flow, Pack, Cool, and Warp. This webinar will briefly guide you through how they function, process data and exchange data as well as how the computation parameter settings work. Additionally, our expert will explain the differences between various analysis sequence such as FPW and CtFPCtW. Join this webinar to understand more about Moldex3D solvers!
What You Will Learn:
The relations among the 4 main solvers
The relations between the computation parameters and the analysis results
The importance of Cool
Webinar: Leveraging Cloud Computing via Moldex3D Cloud Connect
To continuously improve the accuracy of real 3D mold flow analysis results and shorten the time to obtain analysis results, the pursuit of computer computing power is endless. However, building a computing cluster (cluster) by yourself requires manpower to regularly update the computer hardware facilities and perform software and hardware installation and maintenance.
The utilization rate is also an item that needs to be considered. If the scale of local computing cluster is too small, it may not be able to afford the computing demand during the peak period when many projects need to be analyzed, but if the scale of local computing cluster is too large, it may lead to idle compute nodes and increase costs during off-peak periods. In addition, when personnel are on business trips, if there is a demand for computing resources and they need to connect back to the company’s computing cluster for analysis, cost must also be spent to ensure the security of the network channel and sufficient network bandwidth for uploading and downloading analysis projects.
Cloud computing is the on-demand delivery of IT resources provided through the Internet, with pay-as-you-go pricing. Instead of buying, owning, and maintaining physical data centers and servers, you can access technical services such as computing power, storage and databases from cloud providers as needed. Currently, the top three cloud providers in the world are Amazon (AWS), Microsoft (Azure), and Google (GCP). Using the method of establishing computing clusters in the cloud environment, we move computing resources from on-premises to cloud. We only need to pay according to the usage, without considering hardware depreciation, and the cloud computing cluster can be deleted immediately when it is not needed.
