It would be very helpful, if there was an option to check importet lines/curves like IGES, to see if there are two ore more of them. Sometimes the interface of some CAD-systems exports more then one curves and in Moldflow you can't see this.
The Problem is, when you edit the properties to channels and meshed it, you have overlapped beams.
It spend many time, to check this and find the problematic areas.
A SimCFD license is required for using Channel (3D) elements in a Cool (FEM) analysis.
It should be available without need of seeparate licence. It allowed user to import cooling channals 3D model
directly from tool design and do analysis.
There was a Mucell analysis as conventional physical foaming analysis.
Packaging material typified by polystyrene foam in various industrials.
But the module that analyzes do this was not anywhere.
By this chemical foam molding analysis,
allow for warpage prediction and filling
analysis of packing foam material generics.
Please add the function to display CAD model and shape of warp result repeatedly and to compare, and to measure the difference.
I want to compare the product shape and the difference of the shape of the warp result, and to be modifing the model. Warp analysis is executed for mesh model that considers tendency to warp. Therefore, deflection output as a result is not a difference with product shape. The function that product shape made by CAD and shape of warp result of Moldflow can be compared is hoped for.
It would be great if following would be possible:
I did a analysis of a simulation. many xy-plots some probe plots.
If I duplicate and change parameters and do simulation again, all plots are gone and I have to set up the plots again.
If Moldflow would keep such plots, that would be great for faster comparing for example several cooling set ups.
When I query a node, I get an answer about the position in 3 decimals
When I want to create a new node by clicking an existing node and then (for example) change only the z-coordinate, I see that in the create node menu there are only 2 decimals represented
In this way I loose precision, which is key when molding & modelling micro parts...
We Noticed many of material grades around: 200 grades have been deleted from Moldflow 2014 database,
But we can able to re-run the Old study files in 2014.
When we have to work on new project, where we need to use the old material grades, which is no more with 2014.
If we would like use the old database from the previous study at our own risk, as moldflow no more owns the
resposibility for obsolote database.
Yes, I agree, we need to request the mateial supplier for new UDB, till then.
There must be option to export or extract UDB file for old study.
For single shot injection molding analysis, we can add mesh to old study to carry forword the materilal base.
But for two shot mold it is not possible to use old data base.
If already there is an option, please do reply
Please improve even RTM analysis to consider setting of " Simulate gravity effect" of the 3D mesh.
By way of background, the influence that gravity gives a flow by viscosity of the resin is big by the RTM molding of the true molding. That is why it is necessary to let the state reappear by the analysis.
When building a runner system or cooling lines with beam elements or rebuilding localized elements, all these require selecting nodes, or so you think. While in the particular menu of what ever I am building, under "Selection option" the "Filter" is set to "Node", I have found that even though it shows "Node" you are still able to pick a random point in space where no node exists. If your model is in the right orientation it will appear correct but once the part is rotated it's obvious that the node you intended to select was not selected at all.
It would be nice that what ever the "Filter" is set to, that's all you should be able to select.
It would be great if the possibilities in the material database could be optimized
concerning searching for specific material properties especially flow abilities.
Information of flow length with flow spiral would be nice.
A proposal to simplify modeling Baffle features in a cooling system.
Currently, every baffle requires two separate lines to create a baffle. Users can either make a small V configuration or the two lines can be coincident. However, if at any time the nodes get merged on the baffle line then the solver interprets the baffle as a dead-end. This issue is especially problematic if using HyperMesh to generate a Moldflow mesh file.
Eliminate the second line needed to generate the baffle. The necessary pressure drop should be automatically calculated by the solver. The solver should also be able to tell which direction the water is moving based on the coolant inlet boundary condition. This is similar to other softwares on the market.
Some of my customers would be interested into having this kind of analysis in Simulation Insight.
Do you think it could be possible?
The Job Manager Window is not very flexible in my opinion.
WIth larger projects (many studies) and long study names, I am always struggling with the slider bars in the window. I cannot size the left side of the JM window by dragging it. (Only the right side can be extended.)
Can you make the sizing of the JM window better / more flexible?
I hope to make geometry from a result of the Warp analysis.
I carry out Insert analysis.
I import the model that I transformed by a Warp by the analysis in 3D-CAD, and I do CAD data of the part
and Boolean, and want to modify a part.
Furthermore, I want to carry out Insert analysis using them again. However, it is modifing it in a part by manual labor because I can not Boolean it in .stl.
Please add a function to make geometry from a result of the Warp analysis. Many customers give the similar demand to me.
We want to confirm "Ram Position" at the end of filling in analysis log.
Now, when Filling control makes [Ram speed vs ram position] of [Absolute ram speed profile] and carried out analysis Midplane or Dualdomain, information of "Ram Position" is listed in analysis log while driving , but is not displayed after Velocity/pressure switch-over.
We can refer to it when we regulate it with an actual machine because information of "Ram Position" is listed in analysis log at the end of filling.
For example, we want you add the following lines.
Ram Position at the end of Packing = XXX mm ==================================================
Please add the function that can fix the position of the node that I appointed.
When a node to become the reference point carries out in an existing state, placement may change to the node that I do not want to move.
I carry out Remesh and Fix Aspect Ratio in the state that there is a node to become the reference point. Then placement may change to the node that I do not want to move.
I am troubled without being able to measure an accurate result when a reference point moves before I notice.
In addition ,in models having multiple reference points or large-scale model, to take time for a correction very. So I want a function to fix the node that I do not want to move beforehand.
Currently, orientation elements is lost when exporting warpage result in stl at least in midplane. I think it is possible to keep the orientation of the element in line with the orienation of the face inside the stl file.
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.
