Why choose SOLIDWORKS Plastics?

SOLIDWORKS® Plastics provides easy-to-use simulations for analyzing plastic parts and injection molds. It simulates how molten plastic flows during the injection molding process to predict production-related defects, so you can quickly evaluate the manufacturability of parts during design.

The benefits of SOLIDWORKS Plastics

  • Optimize plastic part production
    Optimization that ensures the mold functions properly the first time, reducing or eliminating rework.

  • Scrap reduction

    Easy to analyze design iterations at an early stage of your product development. Then the costs of change are minimal and the impact on manufacturability is greatest. In this way, you increase the quality of parts and reduce the amount of scrap.

  • Collaborate and Report
    Automatically create reports that facilitate sharing and interpretation of simulation results. This makes it easy for you to facilitate collaboration between development teams.
