WHAT IS THE SOLIDWORKS PLASTICS PREMIUM CLASS?

This two-day course includes the fundamentals of the SOLIDWORKS Standard course and also covers the setup and usage of the additional abilities that are in included in the SOLIDWORKS Plastics Premium software. This includes the Flow, Flow + Pack, & Flow + Pack + Warp Plastics study solvers.

 

WHO IS THIS COURSE DESIGNED FOR?

This course is designed for plastic part designers and mold makers who would want to simulate more advanced aspects of the mold setup extending passed the cavity of the mold. These aspects include simulating cooling lines, baffles and bubblers, and mold size dimensions. Mold material properties and cooling channel fluids can also be specified and optimized. These are capabilities available only in Plastics Premium.

 

WHY SHOULD I TAKE THE SOLIDWORKS PLASTICS PREMIUM TRAINING COURSE FROM DASI SOLUTIONS?

This course covers the main assumptions and limitations used in SOLIDWORKS Plastics. It also covers the workflows needed to start, setup, and interrogate the results of a plastics study for both qualitative and quantitative results.

 

HOW MUCH DOES THIS COURSE COST?
