SOLIDWORKS Plastics Premium

For advanced CAE analysts and mold designers.

SOLIDWORKS Plastics Premium includes everything in SOLIDWORKS Plastics Professional plus advanced simulation functionality that allows users to analyze mold cooling line layouts and predict molded part warpage. 

Users can design and analyze simple or complex mold cooling line layouts, optimize cooling system design to minimize cycle times and decrease manufacturing costs and optimize part and mold design, material selection and processing parameters to reduce or eliminate molded part warpage.

Key Features of SOLIDWORKS Plastics Premium

Optimize Cooling

Investigate different cooling strategies and completely understand the conditions within the mold tool

Warpage Analysis

Predict post-molding warpage, modify the tool and molding parameters to correct, or create counter-deformed geometry to allow for warp

Conformal Cooling Analysis

Simulate advanced cooling strategies, like baffles, bubblers and model conformal cooling around the part geometry

Estimate Cycle Time, Clamp Tonnage and Shot Size

Assist manufacturing teams to size the injection molding machine for a given mold, optimize injection molding cycle time and reduce plastics material scrap

Optimize Feed System Design

Analyze sprues, runners and gates to balance runner systems; optimize gate type, size and location; determine the best runner layout, size and cross-sectional shape.

Avoid Costly Mold Rework

Ensure molds will work right the first time to avoid multiple rounds of time-consuming, costly and unnecessary rework


Boundary mesh (shell), solid 3D mesh, global and local mesh refinement             

Plastics Material Database

Plastics material database contains thousands of commercial plastics and is fully customizable

Facilitates Design Team Communication

Web-based HTML reports make it fast and easy to communicate simulation results and design advice to all members of the design-to-manufacturing team
