Credits: 2
Classroom: 2 sessions, 7 hours each
Virtual: 4 sessions 3-1/2 hours each

Class #: S451

SOLIDWORKS Mold Design explores specialized commands used to create the solid bodies typically used in injection molding, die cast, or other mold-based manufacturing processes. This course will show the user how SOLIDWORKS uses a workflow to analyze and apply necessary drafts, build shutoffs, and core and cavity surfaces needed to create mold bodies.

During this instructor-led course, students will learn how to:

  • Analyze a model for proper draft and apply draft.
  • Use advanced surfacing techniques to prep a model for mold tooling creation.
  • Build core and cavity mold tooling.
  • Build side cores and pins.
  • Use alternate techniques for tooling creation.
  • Apply and reuse data common in most mold tools.

Completion of SOLIDWORKS Mold Design will familiarize the user with the specialized commands associated with mold tools, giving them the ability to use its full functionality.

Training Testimonials

The instructor was very knowledgeable in every topic covered. Questions were welcomed and answered very well and with much detail. The class size was perfect for the material covered.

Andrew Vinton

This was an exceptional class. I had CAD experience when I started, but now I understand a great deal about SOLIDWORKS. Thank you, ... for all your help and support in the class.

Francisco Vega

I was nervous coming into the class that I would not be advanced enough to learn but at the end of the week I am completely satisfied with how much I learned.
