Description

An Introduction to Autodesk® Moldflow® Insight Fundamentals 2017

The Introduction to Autodesk Moldflow Insight Fundamentals 2017 is a 40-hour course that gives you an understanding of polymer flow and how it relates to part quality, and introduces you to Autodesk Moldflow Insight. In It’s All About Flow, learn how polymers flow and how the Moldflow design philosophy is used to address polymers characteristics. In Gate Placement, find out where and why gates should be placed where they are and how Moldflow can help with gate placement. In Molding Window, discover the primary processing conditions used in injection molding and how to optimize them. In Gate and Runner Design, learn how to model and analyze the runner system for injection molding—including valve gates. In Meshing, discover the different mesh types used in Moldflow and how to create a good mesh. In Materials, familiarize yourself with specific polymer characteristics and polymer related molding defects, and learn how to find materials to use in a Moldflow analysis. In Fill and Pack Analysis, find out how to run filling and packing analyses and what results are available. In Results, discover how to result plot properties and how to manipulate them. Molding problems and results guidelines are also discussed. And finally, in Reports, learn the methods of sharing results from Moldflow to others on your team.
