What other tools do you use for mold design? In particular, libraries, or splitting tools. Or do you use manual methods to split cavity/core? Have you developed your own mold component library, or use download data from a part manufacturer, or a separate software vendor?

Solidworks plastics flow analysis is taking too much time. i am using solidworks 2016 premium. it takes exactly 25 hrs to run the flow analysis of my part. I'm speculating that there could be many different reasons that you are experiencing this. It could be the item(s) you're trying to do the analysis on, it could be your computer specs (inadequate resources) or maybe even related to your hardware.........

Mold Design Tooling Split: Can't knit I am trying to create a simple mold for a part in Solidworks, but I keep running into the issue during the tooling split where Solidworks says that it cannot knit the surfaces. I looked at a few other forum posts on this topic, and I still wasn't able to get it to work.

I have created Parting line and parting surface as per requirement, But when using ToolSplit feature to separate in to core and cavity, It shows error "Cannot Knit sheets together". Part and error snapshot already attached for reference. Look at your parting line surface in the areas pointed to below.

OK here is the thing Cadmould Essential is essentially free if you excuse the pun. Now I have been using Cadmould essential for a few months now and it's relatively OK, you can get a fair bit of data to make some part and tooling decisions. You can even balance runners in multi-cavity tools - note this is not automated but manual never the less it can be done.

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
