I am looking for a simple way to see cooling chanels in a mold model.
if someone know the simplest way to do so, please advice me.
Try altering the transparency of the part, also you could try changing the colour of the features to help see them.
Hope this helps,
The thing is that the chanels are cut through some plates and are not a solid part but a cut.
It would help if you could share the model or at least a screenshot to help explain what you mean.
Another way might be to change the transparency of a face of the plate so you can see inside.
To show the face again you'll have to use the Select Other to change its transparency.
A quicker method than Select Other to pick the transparent face is Shift Select.
I always make the outside of the block transparent (.80 transparency) and color the cooling features differently from the other holes (I use cyan). As you can see on this part, the cooling lines are cyan...the outside and bottom of the block is transparent...the parting line shut-offs are blue...and the part surfaces are red. The other lines that look like cooling lines but are not cyan are air lines...for air poppets. If your model is a native SW model, you can color the feature instead of the surfaces...much quicker and easier than coloring all the surfaces.
Doug's suggestion is similar to what I see most people use. Making the plate transparent is one way and if you'd like to should and analyse flow you could make an assembly. FlowXpress is excellent for analysing the flow in your cooling channels.
