Description

Description

Microcellular Injection Molding (MuCell) is a mechanical foaming process used to improve the performance/weight characteristics of an injection-molded part. This class focuses on the Microcellular Injection Molding module for Autodesk® Simulation Moldflow® Insight. We explore how well the module correlates with real-world molded samples, determine the best approach for using the module for a brand new mold, and discuss any limitations to the module.
