SOLIDWORKS Plastics Professional

Predict and avoid manufacturing defects in plastic part and injection mold designs, eliminating costly rework, improving part quality, and decreasing time to market.

SOLIDWORKS Plastics Professional builds upon SOLIDWORKS Plastics Standard to analyze mold designs. With easy-to-use tools you can quickly analyze single-and multi-cavity, and family mold layouts including sprues, runners, and gates, to estimate cycle time, and to optimize feed system design. You can even balance runner systems and estimate cycle time, clamp tonnage and shot size.
