Moldex3D R13.0 New Features

1. Moldex3D Designer BLM Mode

edesign1In the last version, Moldex3D introduced Moldex3D Designer BLM mode as a mesh solution to improve both the meshing efficiency and its quality. Moldex3D keeps expanding Designer’s capability to support more analysis types for actual cases, add useful fixing tools for mesh improvements, and enhance the usability.


1.1 Robust Support for More Analysis Types

edesign2Moldex3D has expanded the functionalities of Designer BLM mode to support diverse molding processes, including multiple component molding (MCM), 3D cooling channel, compression molding, powder injection molding (PIM), MuCell® molding, gas-assisted injection molding, water-assisted injection molding, co-injection molding, and bi-injection molding. By utilizing the enhancements, the effort for mesh preparation is greatly reduced but the mesh quality has not been compromised. The procedures of utilizing the features are greatly reduced than those you have used before.


1.2 Efficient Solid Meshing for Complex Runner and Cooling Systems


The new release unleashes the limitation that user cannot directly import the runner or cooling system from CAD. Moldex3D Designer now supports runner and cooling systems designated not only inside Moldex3D Designer but also from CAD, making model design more flexible and closer to the real cases than ever before. This improvement benefits mostly to conformal cooling mesh, whose geometry was often complex and could only run fast cool simulation. With the solid meshing capabilities of this release, the most concerned cooling effect of the conformal cooling design can be assessed by 3D solid cooling channel analysis by building 3D meshes for cooling systems (Computation Parameter > Cool > Cooling channel analysis by > Run 3D solid cooling channel analysis). To conclude, this release reduces the time of meshing preparation but keeps the accuracy of flow predication of both melt and coolant.


1.3 Optional Seeding Mechanism

edesign4In the last version of Moldex3D, node seeding for surface mesh could be refined manually for cases with thickness variations or micro structures. This release introduces an optional mechanism for auto seeding, which enables you to refine node seeding on local areas by Curvature or Curvature&Proximity rule. Several options supports both rules, including the specification of the number of segments, mesh size and biasing types, which includes linear, exponential, and bell curve. By applying Curvature rule, the node density of feature with curvature becomes denser than that of features without curvature. User can also apply Proximity rule to refine the density around small feature, which has shorter feature line than the others.


1.4 Efficient fixing functions

edesign5Designer BLM mode provides not only functions edesign6for solid mesh generation but also useful fixing tools for mesh quality enhancement. The mesh quality table shows several surface issues, including free edge, t-connect edge, overlap and aspect ratio. Designer BLM mode provides to each issues corresponding fixing solutions, categorized and arranged in target-oriented way, assisting user to conveniently handle the mesh defects. The new functions are available in Step 4 of Moldex3D Designer BLM mode. Click Generate (Step 4: Generate Solid Mesh > Generate) and set up the meshing options. If the model contains surface mesh defects, the program will automatically bring up Fix Tools before generating solid mesh.
