Resin Issue

Hello Autodesk Team,

 

i want to add my resin info my resin is an Acrylite FT15 and the manufacturer is Cyro Industries, i sent an email to moldflow datafitting and they answered with an udb file that already exists in the material database.

 

My issue is that the recommended processing info is different from the material supplier, and when i perform fill analysis moldflow says that the part quality is compromised.

 

i want to know if there is another way to get the precise material info in Moldflow.

 

The PDF file of the resin manufacturer is attached.

 

Thank you in advance.

 

Regards

If you are unhappy with the recommended processing conditions you can easily create your own custom material udb file with your own data.

 

Go to Tools ribbon, press "New" button (second left in the Databases section). Select "Themoplastic material" and press OK

Press Databases button (in the right bottom cormer) Find your base material (e.g. search for Tradename having Acylit in it. Press copy button to copy the material into your specific database
