Hi, I need to make a simple cavity and core split for this model (ATTACHED) can ya'll help with what side action and features it will need to be be able to be ejected.
Your fixed part still got issues that may cause problems in mold split.
I didn't check all the details, but below shows few of them
Dennis pointed few feature problems in your other discussion
You may check and fix these, before you start with your mold split
Mnay thanks for the reply, I have since rectified the errors and have got as far as a tooling split, however I am unsure which bodies/surfaces to choose in the options given to get the desired split, any help greatly appreciated file attached
I don't know what's the method explained in your class to split core, cavity and slide for this part. If you were instructed to use mold tools, the above approach is not correct.
Your model still has few issues.
Hope this helps to correct your model and continue with your split
Many thanks John for that help, I have corrected the errors you found and re-attached.yes this is the way we are taught at present perhaps not correct but teaches us the ruled surface command.
Analyse the component and make appropriate modifications to ensure that it is suitable for moulding. i.e. apply draft to surfaces in the line of draw and shutout edges. A draft angle of 3degrees should be applied to the larger faces while 5 degree draft should be applied to the shorter faces.
I have found the shutoff surfaces and picking the knitted surfaces as my parting line in the tooling split BUT gives me a ,,cant knit sheet error,,
When the split is complete I will then tunnel out for side atction and insert a ssimple slide to complete the mould????
similar to this
Really apprecitive of the help thank yo
I don't know if it is still of any help to you but I have spent an hour looking at your model. I have performed the split and completed some prep work on such things as side core, sub inserts and ejection. Its by no means a working tool as there are some things that I would not like to see such as shutting off on ejector pins. However, it should give you an understanding of the CAD process at least. If you need any further help please just let me know.
