FLOW-3D(x) [optimization module] has been used for nearly 10 years, with the majority of users in US and Europe. In recent years (3) years, it has been introduced into the Chinese market. With this user conference, Dr. Cai shared the application of FLOW-3D(x) - optimization module in foreign countries. FLOW-3D(x) adopts a graphical interface, users can design their own specified workflow, directly integration of specified 3D software, with parametric adjustment of 3D, Excel data exchanging, to get the maximum freedom degrees, collaborative calculation and find out optimized results.
In short, the biggest advantage of FLOW-3D(x) optimization module is that users can not only optimize process parameters in FLOW-3D CAST, but also can help users directly optimize mold design and gating system 3D in FLOW-3D CAST. FLOW-3D(x) can help users find the optimal gating and feeding system.
