Function(MOLD)

MOLD-FORM (Support for forming molds)

MOLD-FORM rectifies poorly shaped portions of resin models partly due to sink and warpage through the use of prospected results of shaping simulation. Also, MOLD-FORM strongly supports creation of Parting Surfaces, due to the embedded capabilities of extending composite surfaces and filling in holes.

 Features

The "PLSurface" command

Boundary lines that keep connectivity among adjacent composite surfaces are automatically detected and chosen. They are used for creating new extensions of surfaces.

Mold_Form_ExtendSurface

  • Check of 'gouge' marks left by irregular machining (Automatic deletion of such marks)
  • Preview

 

The "Thickness_VariableOffset" command

An Offset Surface that gradually changes in thickness can be created as wide as needed on a composite surface.

Mold_Form_ThicknessOffset

  • Specification of Offsetting amounts for any points
  • Retention of connectivity with the adjacent surfaces

 
 

The "PartingSrfHole" commands

The "Hole_PL Surface_Base Surface" command

Any holes that exist in open composite surfaces can be automatically detected and filled in through the use of Base Surface.

The Hole_PL Surface_Base Surface command

  • Options of either creating separate composite surfaces or not
  • Color-coded indication for classifying results of command execution

 
 
 
 

The "Hole_PL Surface_Notch" command

Surfaces can be created in order to fill in the gaps of notch parts.

The Hole_PL Surface_Notch command
 

The "Hole_PL Surface_Large Hole" command

Holes are filled in without losing connectivity with adjacent surfaces. The operation is enabled through the use of specified boundary lines of a hole on open composite surfaces.

  • Check of 'gouge' marks left by irregular machining
    The Hole_PL Surface_Large Hole command

The "Transformation_Relief" command

Part of an open composite surface can be bulged in order to make a surface.

  • Uplift for making the top vertex
    Lift up vertex
  • Uplift of an area
    Lift up area
  • Uplift for making the top curves
    Lift up vertex line

The "Transform_Sink2 command

A new surface can be created by moving surfaces or boundary lines into specified directions, and transforming the adjacent constituent surfaces accordingly.

Mold_Form_TransformSink
 

Mold_Form_Jointing

A new surface can be created in order to fill in a gap created by releasing a formed shape from the neighboring surfaces.

Mold_Form_Jointing
 

The "Transform_Warpage" commands

The "WarpageReferenceSrf" command

This command creates a new surface by rotating a composite surface or part of it around the Rotation Base Line at a specified angle.
 

The "WarpageVariableSrf" command

This command creates a new Offset Surface by specifying displacement magnitudes for individual vertices of an open composite surface.
 

The "TransformWarpage" command

Upon assigning to target surfaces deformation volumes against the Base Surface, a surface is created in a solid model. Note that the surface thus created is referred to as 'Transformed Surface'.
