Throughput result for 3D

Status: Under Review
by M.Brassel on ‎06-28-2013 03:38 AM

I'd like to see a throughput result for 3D flow analysis, as it sums up the Flow rate, beams result for the whole analysis.

Otherwise I would have to do Dual Domain flow analysis in parallel just to get this result. Or did I miss anything?

thickness plot

Status: Under Review

we have script to generate thickness plot, which can be added to results or exported to MFR(communicator file)


It should be readily available command or option in moldflow as many users dont have script to generate thickness plot

It should be a maximize button for material search result window.

In this way you can directly compare different materials with filters you imposed for searching.

Actually you have to drag the window after a new search.

There are some ideas about improving material selection. This would fit into this.

Command lines

I know this is an old point but wanted to emphasize it as it really influences our work with the software.


We have defined several macros and commands by which we work with the software. Examples would be


a.) generation of wall thickness results to be exported

b.) marking of standard results for report


Normally we work with multiple instances of the software. Every time we want to export some results, we have to

change the opened projects as we only have access to macros/command line on the first instance.


It would be very helpful to have macros/command lines available in every instance.

As you noted, this is an old one. This has een looked at several times and it's not simple due to a limitation in a Microsoft component that's used. This request has comme up frequently though.

Maximum 2 studies are allowed to be exported to mold flow results file (*.mfr) only first 2 studies of selection will be exported.

It should be allowed to export as many as possible studies.


Initially it was  allowed only 8 results plots to be exported per study  in earlier versions. Now it is possible to export as many as possible results.

The same way, it should be allowed to export as many as possible studies and will help in comparing more different iterations.

I would like an 'All' option for Intermediate Results in the Fill+Pack solver parameters.  I find it frustrating that solver timesteps are solved but not outputted for results.  As it stands, you either need to:

  • Use the 'Write at constant intervals' option, which will miss timesteps for fine timestepping.
  • Use the 'Write at specific times' option, but this requires us to know when all timesteps will occur before running the analysis, or to assume a very small time interval.

I understand that computing resources will be tied up for results output and file storage, but this option would still be of use to me.

colors for each properties

Colors for each properties.


Example: a single layer having complete feed system. we should be able appy color for each sub sections.

instead of current option, where default color will be applied to  all the similar properties of a layer will be same.


i.e all the beam elements of a layer will be of same color. similarly for elements/nodes/ regions/beams.


It will help when making reports and discussion to refer the specified entity
