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. 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. But 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 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 move on to more complex and also hidden functions within the viewer.
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.
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.
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.
