NX MACH 3 MOLD DESIGN
The fastest and most complete mold design process
NX™ Mold Design software delivers a state-of-the-art solution that enables mold manufacturers to shrink their lead times and tighten their cost controls. By combining industry knowledge and best practices with process automa-tion, NX Mold Design streamlines the entire mold development process: from part design to tool assembly layout, tool design and tool validation. NX Mold Design excels at even the most challenging mold designs, providing advanced functionality, step-by-step guidance and associativity with part designs to ensure fast response to design changes and quality molds.
Validate part design for manufacturability using wall thickness checking functions, draft analysis and undercut region detection and radius evaluation.
Tooling analysis Validate
The mold design within the assembly context for proper clearances and reliefs in various positional states. Analyze the electrode requirements. Improve tool longevity with strength analysis and sharp corner detection.
Design change management
Graphically compare versions of a design for similarities and differences. Swap design versions, control the propagation of change and efficiently update related features, drawings and toolpaths.
