I will be working editing my injected part, and ill insert a fillet or pattern, and then ill notice that some surfaces randomly disappear? This is a huge problem, because then i need to go and create a fill for each missing surface. Is there a fix for this?

Problem with Occluded Undercut So my part for injection molding is fine for draft analysis, however when it comes to undercut analysis it is showing 113 occluded undercuts but not showing them up in red. I believe my part is fit for injection molding but I don't want to send it off with all these undercuts

I have used the cavity feature in the past, but am having issues this time around because I am working with files not native to SW (no tree). I am running SW 2017 Professional. Someone sent me a stp file of a part. I need to edit it and create the mold via the cavity feature.

Parting Surface Sheets Wont Knit? I've been working on a mold for a part for quite a while and I've been stuck since it keeps giving me the same rebuild error (cant knit sheets) when I try to make the tooling split. I've made some molds before but I have never run into this problem and I would appreciate some help.

How the Lay out sketches can be used in the Top Down Mold Design environment effectively? Will it be a good option? Is there any other better approach which can support drastic layout changes or concept changes or even the part model modifications?

I wish to know whether Shut-off Surfaces will work in this case. Because it is not coming may be the reason it is crossing the parting line. Redecos Technologies Aug 23, 2017 10:56 PM (in response to Maha Nadarasa) Shut off surface may not be practical over here.
