How does SOLIDWORKS Plastics save you money? SOLIDWORKS Simulation has always been thought of as a useful tool to help determine things such as whether a design is going to break, withstand heat, survive a drop, or withstand certain frequencies. This helps save money by limiting the number of expensive prototypes which must be built to prove a design. When it comes to injection molded parts, SOLIDWORKS Plastics does the same thing, as creating a bad mold that produces bad […]
