I try to replicate the work of a video but couldn’t formed a Parting Line. How to do fix this?
Complex Mold Split Using SolidWorks - YouTube
Manually creating the splits, ruled surfaces, lofts, trims, knits for the parting surface.. and core/cavity offset surfaces and shutoff... adding the Folders (and adding the correct surfaces to them).. is the cleanest way, imho.
Please follow the complete video and you would understand what to do. The author (Alin) is not adding parting line at 1:00 but he has shown further in video that you need to add a split which is used to create the required parting line.
That video from Alin Vargatu at Javelin clearly explain the parting line creation
When you go to parting line and do a draft analysis, it will show the split line and pick for parting line
Maha,.. for the fins.. use Split Line Sihouette.. (image attached)
Images looks same but dimensions are different. Therefore it gives different result. In my view it is not possible to follow the entire video.
When I applied Parting Line tool as in the video I got different color this is what troubling me. Also I am not good in understanding molding.
I've seen the video but maybe will be usefull to add some radii to the parting line...if you don' add it, you must erode the core and cavity....(expensive method)
Please produce in detail.
Something like this
How to get rid of this blue color.
You need to add the proper parting line and drafts (if needed) in order to get rid of those blue colored faces. With your current parting line, you won't get away from them.
What you are encountering is a bug. Older versions of Solidworks colored it as shown in the video but in Solidworks 2018 (what I am currently using) it colors the part wrong. No worries, once the parting line has been properly defined it still works just like it is supposed to.
Please attach your file.
What is the reason of having this option?

Kindly read about molds, injection molding, plastic part in general and also in SOLIDWORKS which would clear your doubts.
The blue color faces indicates those faces which have both positive and negative draft.
Please attach the file
..you can do it, Maha.
I am very poor in understanding molding. That is why I am asking.
Thanks. It is too late. Better late than never.
I tried to replicate your work with some modification. But I am unable to trim a surface. What is the reason?
Hello Maha,.. for that error, the sketch radii ends need help with direction (which side to cut) .. so, add some lines to help the trim,.. and/also trim back the Ruled Surface overlaps.. and Knit.
What is the reason for other trim works this trim does not work?
..I'll attach the file above..
Why does the ruled surface impossible here?
..well, your current ruled value is 100mm, ..if your Rule was <5mm it would work.. the limit for that edge on the radii is <R5.
