I may be bit lazy to ask this option, but I feel it must be.
1. There must be a option to transfer process parameters, including material details from one study to another study.
or else every time with new study or with new mesh needed to apply the inputs from previous iterations.
2.There must be a option to export process parameters, including material details from one study as a file & that should imported to other new study or with new mesh, when ever needed to apply the inputs from previous iterations.
An Option to Dump results in between the analysis
In Sigma soft (competitor software similar to mold flow),
there is a option to dump the analysis in between, then stop the analysis. The, next time you open the study and re- launch the analysis, it will start analysis from where you stopped it.
In mold flow, we need similar option
i.e In Between; we can stop analysis instead of aborting and close the study. Then,we can re-run from, where we had stopped it. So that we can save time, incase we need to abort the analysis & re-run after some time,
Tiger strips/a surface defect, which often occurs in the injection molding, is characterized by a cyclic sequence of shiny and matt stripes at the flow front.
The physical cause of the occurrence of tiger stripes, is the re-melting of already frozen outer layers the thermally damaged material reaches the surface and leads to spots with a matter shininess in appearance.
It is possible with calculated plots with some relations, which is being used by some raw material suppliers.
Mold flow should introduce Tiger strips occurrence plot.
Hello all together,
today if you use global merge it merges over all layers, visible or not visible.
Global merge need also an option to work only on visible entities, and not for all layers and parts in a study.
When opening a project, all folders in the task pane expand fully by default. In a project with a lot of studies, this can be a bit of a nuisance. I usually have to collapse almost all the folder to get the most recent info visible within the window. If the folders could reopen in the state (collapsed/expanded) in which they were when the project was closed, that would be ideal. At the very least, making the default have a project open with all folder collapsed would be an improvement.
I would like to add the ability to open Logs file of a job that is running without having to open the file itself. Important as 3d files get larger and larger. At times I do not want to open the model due to the amount of RAM required if I am already near limit of RAM. I see this often during cooling analyses.
My team and I always sort layers in a specific order to make navigation easier between users - however I spend a lot more time than I would like to just reordering layers since one can only move a layer up or down 1 position in the order. It seems like a no-brainer to add the same drag-and-drop ability that is present in the studies pane. Folders would also be great, but even this would help.
For example, when using split / tiled windows ,
if we select query results a part of the model on one windo, then at same time we would like to select the query results in another window of split screen, the the previously selected query on the other window dissappears
Hello all together,
to speed up the simulation, hybrid meshes would be advantageous.
For example Sigmasoft takes voxal meshes and this mesh is more tolerat of CAD problems. The calculation time for a compled Mould is very fast.
To decrease the preparation time and computation time hybrid meshes can help.
It would be possible to simulat very large models in 3D.
Power copy option
There must be option to select some components of one study file & copy them or paster them in another study file.
If I need to add same feed system to other study file, I should be able copy the only feed system from that study file, should be directly paste in other study. file.
The possibility to create a box in graphic area to make a annotation on result.
When you did a note in results, some times is difficult to describe the exactly point where will occur something wrong.
You create a annotation tool, like a box that you can put a mensagem and link to a Node or local in the model. And this box follow the model in graphic Area.
I think this will be good in two situation, first in ASMI or ASMI to create a results or MFR file and when will revise the result in Communicator.
It's been well documented that 3d gates are much more accurate than beam element gates for 3d models. So I'd like the ability to create a dual-domain mesh from beam elements for gates. I would use this to easily create 3d gates. The technology to do this already exists when you create tool files for Cool(FEM). But it's a real pain to do that to a whole tool just to get a gate.
I am ok with having to stich the new gate in myself.
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
moldflow should be able to estimate the time for analysis.
when ever, we are launch an analysis, moldflow should be able to pop up tentative time to complete the analysis.
it should be based RAM/ memory / processor availble/solver settings and number of nodes/elements
I'd like to have the study notes added to the mouse over feature that currently shows imported file name, mesh type and # of elements, material, and # of injection locations. This would allow me to see what changes I did to the study without having to open the study. This would be a great benifit for large files, and important when looking back a studies months, or years after you worked on them. See picture.
