Course: Moldex3D Viewer for Beginners



Injection molding simulation is the base to develop any plastic part.
It is one fundamental piece of any DFM.

There are several simulation softwares available in the market, and each software comes with its own viewer for the calculated results.
One of the leading injection molding softwares is Moldex3D.

Therefore, it is likely that you will get a .rsv file with results calculated by Moldex3D. To open the file you need the Moldex3D Viewer.
To make the most out of the results and cross check the parameters that led to the results, you need to understand how the Moldex3D viewer works.
Taking a look to colorful pictures is nice, nevertheless it does not help in the process.
With Video, Audio and Hypertext, this course will tell you how to use the Moldex3D Viewer to get the maximum out of simulation results.

About Moldex3D Viewer for Beginners

Simulations are done in parallel to part and mold design if it comes to the development of a plastic part. In worst cases, an injection molding simulation is done after problems are found on the shop floor.

The simulation guys have their software to take a close look to all details of the simulation and the results. The good thing is that they can share the result by creating special files that can be visualized using an appropriate viewer.

For this, sharing the file or opening a shared file is simple. However, how can the Viewer be used and what is important to take a look to?

It is nice to see the colorful pictures, but it won’t help on terms of optimizing either a design of a plastic part, nor optimizing the process parameters. Therefore, a deeper understanding of what can he seen in the viewer and how to use the controls are vital in order to benefit from results. This is why you need to know how to use mouse gestures, how to turn the part and zoom-in, as well as how to compare different results in multi window mode.

In this course, we show all the basic functions of the viewer and we move on to more complex and also hidden functions within this software.

With this, finding the process parameters and material details allow you to check the used parameters and understand results much better. Furthermore, you will see how to change to different time steps, use slicing and cutting functions on the part that will provide you a deeper look into the results.

Moldex3D Viewer is free of charge and you can get it either from CoreTech (Owner of Moldex3D) or the company which did the simulation and sent you the result file.

The understanding about how to handle the simulation results and making the most out of it is what you will obtain in this course.

Project Management Simulation at PLEXPERT GmbH.

I am specialist in injection molding simulation with Moldex3D for many years. From 2011 – 2017, I worked at Simpatec GmbH. Since 2017 I am working at PLEXPERT GmbH as simulation project manager.


My work includes the support of Moldex3D as one of the most advanced simulation systems on the market. Support questions on injection molding simulation and Moldex3D are coming in daily basis. Therefore, consulting services in terms of simulation, result interpretation and comparison to real processes is my every day work. Besides that, I perform training courses to support our customers on using Moldex3D and understand better injection molding process. Participants on my course learn how to work and improve their daily experience with injection molding in general and in Moldex3D specifically.


Feel free to contact me regarding any question on your current projects.

I am working in the field of injection molding simulation since 1994. In the past 24 years I have had the chance to work with Moldflow, C-Mold, REM3D, 3D Sigma (Sigmasoft), Cadmould, TM-Concept, Simpoe, Visiflow and Moldex3D.


Since 2006, I am CEO of PLEXPERT Germany and responsible for innovation, new development and process optimization.


Still nowadays, one of my pleasures is to hold courses and share the knowledge I have earned through my daily work in the plastic industry. My constant work as consultant for injection molding provides me a solid knowledge base on how simulation software works, what are the tricks in 2.5D and 3D simulation, as well as on how to match simulation results with final results in real life, as shop floor demands.


I am happy that Inka invited me to share some thoughts and provide some lessons in the course initiated by her. All participants will expand their horizon into simulation in order to use their knowledge to build better parts, saving material, costs, energy and other valuable resources.
