    Mold design: How can I design with load on a slide shutoff?

    Neal Davis

      I am designing a mold and I want to include a load (overlap) so that the slide is ensured to shutoff.

      I have been using the "cavity" tool for most things, and it starts messing things up when I modify one surface but then I rebuild and update the corresponding surface within the assembly.

      If I want to do it, I am currently forced to do the archaic "export/import" technique which defeats about 99% of why SW is so powerful.

       

      I'm self taught on the "Mold tools" so I'm unsure at how to extensively use them all.

      I found the included Mold tutorial to be very meager on anything besides a "stone simple" design application.

       

      I appreciate any help you can provide!

      Thanks!
