Delcam plc of Birmingham, England, has developed the PS-Moldmaker, a module for its PowerShape hybrid modeling software for designing injection molds.
PS-Moldmaker takes a computer-aided-design model of the part and produces a three-dimensional assembly of solid models, detailing the die cavities and all other mold components.
One feature, the Die Wizard, automatically finds the split line of the product, then proposes two die blocks of suitable size. Die Wizard then creates splits and runoff surfaces to form the halves and separates the cavity, with the split surface, from the die blocks.
