I'm trying to apply a shrink factor to this part in SW mold task. This is an investment casting (Aluminum A356). How do I go about doing this within Mold Design tool? The part is a step file imported from SDRC so its an orphan part.
just to add to what Michael told you: I usually choose the option to scale about the origin of the part. You get 3 choices, but especialy with imported parts where there is a posibility of getting a revised part, it is best to scale from the origin.
For example, if you want to scale your aluminum part at the factor of .006"/in. you would enter 1.006 into the dialogue box.
It is important to apply the shrinkage factor to the geometry before you use any of the mold tools. The scale feature is not part of the mold tools.
