Sometimes tooling split is created on parting line plane in other times it is created little bit below the parting line plane. What make the difference?
The split of a part isn't necessarily tied to a parting plane. The part could have been modeled by someone that doesn't know molding and the tool designer may switch the plane (or part) to a different plane. A designer may also shift it to allow for draft or to put the part more into one side of the tool to make tool opening easier. This would allow the part to stay in the ejector half of the tool and not stick in the hot half. If the part sticks to the hot half, the ejectors have no way of ejecting the part.
Come on, really?
No example references attached or cited.
I give up!
I have to refer from two examples that is why I avoided. Let me be specific.
This is YouTube tutorial.
SOLIDWORKS – Mold Tools Part 3 – Shut Off-Parting Surfaces and Tooling Split - YouTube
Time around 4.30
This is class example
I do not know in the real world plane of the tooling split is how many mm below the parting line but in this case pill thickness is 5mm therefore 2mm tooling split plane seems too much.
Where is your parting line?
Where is your draft?
Imagine the pill being removed from the mold - how will the sides be released?This can be imagined as a simply physics or geometry problem.Consider friction between the pill and the mold on removal of the pill.How will that friction be reduced/eliminated?
(Hint: The instructions for the Tooling Split Plane are wrong.)
(Also, your pill is not 5mm - you added domes to each side and then scaled?)
After scaling - do you have the correct amount of active medical ingredient in the pill?
How will you compress the powder?
Like in your model in many YouTube tutorials parting line and parting surface are same.
Draft 1 degree is shown in the above image.
Friction can break the pill. I do not know how eliminate it.
Is there any food grade glue injected to keep the powder particles together?
