About Moldex3D eDesign
Starting with a new software shall not be challenging but fun. Therefore this course provides you a walk through, how to work with Moldex3D eDesign using the Moldex3D Studio R17. The most important features for running a simulation in Moldex3D and to evaluate the results will be explained. We will start with a new project setup, then insert a geometry and run the simulation. Mouse gestures for moving, turning and zooming in and out are shown. And we will take a look to how a runner system is added easily inside Moldex3D.
To prepare the simulation the melt entrance will be set and the part meshed using the eDesign mode. Then we will see how simple it is to follow the material selection and search for other materials. After that the process parameters are checked and the simulation will be started.
Together we will have a look to the results we get from the simulation. First we will change the view, check the log files and use the result advisor. Cutting, Slicing and the Isosurface result will give us an inside view of the parts behavior. Different time steps help to figure out, for example, the necessary packing time. At the end, the deformation settings help us to see the warpage tendency.
As you will see, working with Moldex3D eDesign is simple and fun. The aim of this course is to quickly start working with the software and learn the key features needed to do so.

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.
