  • Achieve improved process simulation accuracy

Description

Description

This class will review new functionality in Autodesk® Moldflow® Insight software that represents the current research directions in Moldflow development. We will discuss several capabilities, including 3D injection compression molding, conformal cooling support, 3D heater elements, crystallization analysis, breakage of long fibers and properties of LFT composites, bi-injection molding, multiple cylinder support for 3D gas injection, buckling analysis for 3D warp, improved wall slip calculation, viscoelastic residual stress, ejection force prediction, and analysis of mold fatigue.

Target Audience
