Missler Software will demonstrate TopSolid’Split 7.7, an extension of TopSolid’Design that enables toolmakers to define and design core cavity blocks from an imported 3D plastic part or a design from the software.
Once the model has been imported into TopSolid’Design, the user can prepare the part for injection by analyzing the draft angles of the model and globally or differentially controlling the shrinkage factor related to the material uses. TopSolid’Split automatically determines the best parting lines, which the user can redefine locally. The software extension also features intelligent wizards to automatically generate shut-off and external parting surfaces. It also can define all the inserts needed to account for production constraints at the core and cavity block split stage.
