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

Question asked by Neal Davis on Nov 24, 2014

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!
