The icons displayed in Mold Design specification tree are standard icons.
|You can choose to show or hide parameters, relations and
constraints using the following menus:
|The rules below should be complied with for a better use of Mold Design. You can create molds without following these rules, but this may lead to unexpected results and performances.|
||InjectionSide, EjectionSide and EjectorSystem are CATProducts
The compulsory names for plates are:
||The Part Number of the part to mold must be MoldedPart
MoldedPart must contain the part to mold and all surfaces required for the core plate and cavity plate split. The Geometrical set containing the parting surface must be called PartingBody.
When splitting a component, all bodies included in the component will be split. If there is a body that you do not want to split, rename it with two underscores as a prefix (i.e. body1 becomes __body1).
If a surface named CavitySurface is found in the specification tree, it will be automatically proposed as the splitting element for the cavity plate.
If a surface named CoreSurface is found in the specification tree, it will be automatically proposed as the splitting element for the core plate.
|Predefined 3D points
mold bases include 3D points that are identified as being for the location
of components; Points for:
This is a CATPart with a special structure
Its name must be that used in the catalog (here SLIDER)
There must be an Geometrical set named PartBody containing the object itself.
There must be an Geometrical set named DrillHoll containing the negative shapes subtracted from the mold.
There must be an Geometrical set BaseBody containing a point named Base, with its coordinates being 0,0,0 to define the reference point of the component.
To add material around a component, you must create an Geometrical set named Pad.
To remove material around a component, you must create an Geometrical set named Pocket.
|Tooling Part Interface
|It is a CATPart, with a name beginning with TlgITf_
that is generated by tooling commands to convey impact information from one
context to another.
Sleeve_Z022_2 is inserted between the ClampingPlate in the InjectionSide and the SettingPlate in the EjectionSide. TlgItf_EjectionSide conveys the impact information from the InjectionSide to the EjectionSide.
