The mesh

During the process of importing a model you select a mesh type, or analysis technology, to represent the model shape.

Choose from:

guid-37bd7822-29b1-4ad8-8ae7-05294c50a0e9-4878911 Midplane mesh – which is suitable for thin shell-like models

guid-761e1a39-68be-4264-b69f-8149ed532bde-6738403 Dual Domain mesh – which is suitable for thin shelled parts with some thick areas

 3D mesh – which is suitable for thick and chunky parts

Automatic mesh generation

Automatic meshing is the recommended approach if you have a CAD model. Set up your analysis parameters, launch the analysis, and the mesh is generated automatically. The mesh is automatically refined around injection locations and small model features, and this method generates a good 3D mesh.

Manual mesh generation

Generate or refine the mesh manually, if there are special areas of interest in the model that you want to inspect more closely.

About Autodesk Fusion 360

Autodesk Fusion 360 is a tool that interfaces with your Moldflow product and is used to edit CAD geometry.

Select a CAD body, launch Autodesk Fusion 360 from within Moldflow. The selected CAD body is imported into Autodesk Fusion 360 so that you can make changes to the model geometry.

Autodesk Fusion 360 is available as part of the Moldflow installation or can be downloaded from https://www.autodesk.com/mf-install-fusion. A single Autodesk Fusion 360 license is available for each subscription seat. Maintenance users require a separate Autodesk Fusion 360 subscription that can be obtained from https://www.autodesk.com/mf-subscribe-fusion.

Autodesk Moldflow Synergy 2019

Autodesk Fusion 360 supports the following CAD geometry formats:

  • Autodesk Inventor 2019, *.ipt
  • Autodesk Inventor 2019, *.iam
  • SAT (v4 – v7)
  • CATIA® V5-6R2018
  • Parasolid® up to V30
  • Pro/ENGINEER® Wildfire® 5.0
  • SolidWorks 2018
  • Autodesk Moldflow Synergy 2019

Note: Although assemblies contain more than one CAD body, they are treated as a single model when using this tool. If you select a CAD body that is a component of an assembly, the entire assembly is exported to Autodesk Fusion 360.

After you have modified the geometry, export it from Autodesk Fusion 360 into your Moldflow product.

If you choose to Return to Moldflow, or you close the Autodesk Fusion 360 application, the modified CAD model is imported automatically into a new study. For the round-trip workflow to complete successfully, do not close the current Autodesk Moldflow Insight project while you are modifying the model geometry with Autodesk Fusion 360.

Autodesk Moldflow Synergy 2019

In the new study, the following settings specified in the original study are retained:

  • Material selection
  • Process settings
  • Mesh parameters, such as global edge length and local mesh density settings
  • Boundary conditions such as injection locations and coolant inlets

Surfaces that have been modified will have lost the boundary conditions they had initially. Before you start an analysis in the new study, mesh any altered geometry that is returned from Autodesk Fusion 360 and reapply any required boundary conditions on the new mesh.

Runner Balance analysis (Concept)

The Runner Balance Analysis is used to determine the optimum volume for the sections of the runner system. This analysis ensures that the part fills evenly and there is an acceptable pressure magnitude in the cavity, minimizing runner volume.

The Runner Balance analysis is supported for the following analysis technologies:

  • Dual Domain
  • 3D

Note: Gates are not automatically sized by the Runner Balance analysis.

Autodesk Moldflow Synergy 2019

How it works

Runner systems should be balanced to reduce overpacking during the filling phase. During a Runner Balance analysis, the runner system dimensions are altered to ensure that parts fill simultaneously and the volume of the feed system is minimized.

A well-balanced runner system can make considerable savings in material usage. Before performing a Runner Balance analysis, you should check the Fill analysis and ensure that you are satisfied with each of the following:

  • Molding conditions.
  • Gate locations.
  • Cavity balance.
  • Autodesk Moldflow Synergy 2019

The Runner Balance analysis is for a model with an attached runner system. A runner system that is added after a Fill+Pack analysis helps you balance the cavities. The aim is to achieve runner dimensions with the following characteristics:

  • The same pressure drop in all flow paths, which fills all cavities simultaneously
  • Controlled shear heating, which minimizes stress levels without using a high melt temperature
  • Minimized volume of runner material relative to cavity volume, which achieves the highest possible pressure drops in the runner system

Tip: It is useful to perform a Runner Balance analysis without runner balance constraints, and then use these new dimensions as the basis on which to set constraints. This reduces the risk of over-constraining a part and restricting the program’s ability to provide a balanced runner system design.

Cooling channel design(Concept)

Complex geometry in plastic molds can create areas that are difficult to cool.

For example, parts of the mold that project into the cavity, such as bosses and ribs, carry high heat loads because they are surrounded by plastic. They also restrict the area of metal through which heat can escape.

To channel coolant into high heat-load areas, it may be necessary to design intricate cooling systems.

This means linking cooling circuits together to form a network of cooling channels. Networking requires the inclusion of bends and devices such as baffles and bubblers. It is important to consider how these devices affect the operation of the cooling system.

Autodesk Moldflow Synergy 2019

Cooling system design considerations

The aim of the mold designer is to design a cooling system with the following characteristic:

  • Uniformly cool the part
  • Achieve the desired target mold temperature for the start of the next cycle
  • Minimize cycle time

The mold designer must also consider the following factors, which affect the performance of the cooling system:

  • The physical layout of channels and the mold material into which they are cut
  • The coolant parameters such as coolant type, temperature, flow rate and pressure drop

The best location for cooling channels is in the blocks that contain the mold cavity and core. Placing the cooling channels outside the cavity or core block may not provide adequate cooling.

The physical design of the cooling system is normally restricted by the mold geometry, positioning of split lines, moving cores, and ejector pins.

Bends in cooling circuits

The inclusion of a bend in a cooling channel increases turbulence, which results in a large pressure drop and an increase in heat transferability through the bend.

In a Cool analysis, bends are handled rather like an extra section of cooling channel that has unique resistance and heat transfer characteristics. These sections are assigned apparent lengths for resistance and heat transfer that are much greater than the actual flow length through the bend.

For example, a bend can have a resistance equivalent to a flow length 50 times the diameter of the cooling channel. Heat transfer capacity equates to a channel 10 times the diameter.

The apparent lengths are used to calculate the pressure drop and heat transfer capability. These characteristics are then applied to a single point in the flow channel that represents the bend.

Turbulence also occurs when there is a change in the diameter of the cooling channel.

Position of cooling channel inlet/outlets

The inlets and outlets should ideally be positioned on the bottom of the mold. This eliminates the risk of the coolant dripping onto the mold.
