when I draw up a primaery runner, a secondary runner, a gate and a part in solidworks, mirror then mirror the mirror. i have four identical parts and runners yet i always get a variation in presures, temperture and fill beteen parts. what is causing this variation. thanks Jim L
generally the recommendation is:
- model 1 cavity, and duplicate cavities in Moldflow Adviser.
- the runner system should be modeled in Moldflow Adviser, so they are beam elements
If you model runners in cad, are they 3D?
And do you run a 3D analysis in Moldflow Adviser?
Otherwise, if running as Dual Domain the runners are meshed with triangles, which is not recommended.
This can create unexpected result.
Hope this helps.
