SOLIDWORKS Plastics Premium Training

Class #CAE415

For plastics part designers, SOLIDWORKS Plastics Professional enables you to optimize parts for manufacturability in the early stages of design. Easy to learn and use, SOLIDWORKS Plastics Professional is fully embedded within the SOLIDWORKS CAD environment so you can analyze and modify designs at the same time you optimize for form, fit, and function.
SOLIDWORKS Plastics Premium:
SOLIDWORKS Plastics Premium gives anyone who designs or builds injection molds an accurate, easy-to-use way to optimize them. You can quickly create and analyze single-cavity, multi-cavity, and family mold layouts, including sprues, runners, and gates. You can even balance runner systems and estimate cycle time, clamp tonnage, and shot size, enabling you to optimize feed system design and avoid costly mold rework.
The SOLIDWORKS Plastics course covers all the features and functions of both SOLIDWORKS Plastics Professional (for part designers) and SOLIDWORKS Plastics Premium (for mold designers).
