WHAT IS ALTAIR INSPIRE MOLD?
Inspire Mold is an integrated tool to analyze plastic injection molding processes. From mold creation to filling, packing, cooling and warpage simulation. A simple workflow helps users avoid common injection molding defects such as warping, short shots and sink marks. Inspire Mold adds to an already robust manufacturing analysis solution from Altair.
Start with a 3D part and use that to create a negative-cavity mold. Automatically create geometry for runner systems and balancing, gate location, air vents and other important mold features.
Test multiple design options easily including multiple cavities, inserts, runner systems and sprues.
Through Altair Material Data Center users get access to reliable material data. Users can also simulate different fiber orientations and integrate results into structural analysis.
Understand Potential Defects
Quickly understand common manufacturing defects such as air traps, weld lines, short shots (non-fills), jetting and sink marks.
- Generate mold designs and mold configurations including runner systems, gates and other mold components
- Filling, packing, cooling and warpage simulations
- Understand manufacturing defects like: air traps, weld lines, jetting and hesitation
- Simulate fiber orientation for reinforced parts
