"As the cross sections is quite small the gate should be frozen within first seconds"
is this based on particular experience or that i what the manual says should happen? (i don't have it handy)
The manual says (and shows on the X-Y plot) it should freeze off after 1.6 sec. There is a 1 sec fill time so in total we got 2.6 sec for this particular point to cross the glass transition temperature (Tg).
As I said, I've been analyzing my own parts and was kinda suspicious about the results I was getting. I then decided to run the Lesson08 to only confirm my concerns.
I'm describing something that looks like a serious issue with SW Plastics 2015 but it seems that beside Jared, no one is interested in helping me out.
My VAR response is kinda slow but they at least confirmed that the problem does not exist in SW 2014.
In fact I'm now forced to downgrade to 2014 because of that!
I'm looking forward to hearing from anyone using SW Plastics for more than just making a cool and colorful animations of plastic flow...:)
what is the spr number?
did they confirm it was generic and not part specific?
I've been told by my VAR that it's been now confirmed by people from Dassault that such problem indeed exist! Can you imagine that? It's a critical bug in my opinion.
I'm not sure if I'm the only one who discovered it but I'm wondering how much time it will take to fix that!?
For now I have to say SW Plastics 2015 is useless piece of...
Last week I had a short webinar with one of the DSS official responsible for Plastics development.
No matter how polite and informative that discussion was, I'm really disappointed on how are things going...
The problem is well known and they're working on it...The thing is they're still waiting for some validation examples base on real data before trying to finally adjust the solver. I've been told that globally the results should be better now but there are indeed some thermal issues that must be fixed to give proper information about gate freeze off time.
I think the worst is that we'll have to wait (how sweet) until 2016 SP2.0 for the issue to be fixed (most likely).
I've been waiting the whole SW2015 release and I'm definitely running out of patience now.
Now let's add this
and you're starting to ask yourself is it still worth to be a part of this game...
