I'm new to mold design and I was wondering how can I turn a solidworks part I've been working on to a mold ?
Hi Shar Fa,
I hope you are doing well.
Have you checked out the Mold Design Tutorial in SolidWorks? If you go under help in SolidWorks you will find the tutorials.
I think SolidWorks has done a great job with these, and might give you a good starting point attacking the part you attached.
I hope you find this helpful.
Have a great day.
Even after going through the tutorials im still having problem with this specific part.
I cant seem to be able to create a parting surface for this model.
Could someone demonstrate for me on the above attached part please?
There are few things that need to consider when you design a mold.
This particular part is 6mm thick and the round posts are 4.9mm
In normal case, this is too thick to get the proper size and shape in injection molding
You have to go thru the mold tutorial to get a better idea of how the mold split works.
There are lots of discussions on this subject in this forum if you search.
The below picture shows a simple split to show you how it works
Things like gate, ejection, draft etc..need to work out the way you want.
This is just a concept to start.
Hope this helps
