CoreTech System (Moldex3D) announced the release of Moldex3D R14.0. In this new version, significant improvements have been made to empower users to work faster and easier on complex models with increased accuracy and novel simulation capabilities for advanced processing applications.

Moldex3D R14.0 includes a number of important improvements on solvers’ robustness and accuracy. The enhanced solvers not only require less meshing elements, but also exhibit greater tolerance for lower quality elements to conduct successful simulations without compromising accuracy. More importantly, the level of meshing flexibility has also been widely broadened. It opens up ability for users to use different mesh types in a way that allows Moldex3D’s solvers to drive them and give them a high degree of accuracy, which results in a more efficient workflow in the pre-processing stage.

One of the most significant features in Moldex3D R14.0 is the new generation of Designer BLM. Boundary Layer Mesh (BLM) is a powerful high-resolution mesh technology for complex and large geometries. The new version takes this powerful BLM mesh technology to an even higher level. The automated mesh generator significantly accelerates the creation of high-quality meshes, allowing users to generate up to 5 inward layers of prismatic meshes to improve boundary layer resolution and the auto repair function drastically reduces manual efforts on fixing mesh defects. This will enable a productive handling for modeling complex parts and greatly reduce meshing time.

In addition, CoreTech System recognizes the importance of continuously advancing Moldex3D’s simulation capabilities in lightweight product designs. On top of the enhanced fiber orientation simulation, new features in Moldex3D R14.0 are also made to assist users design better FRP products. Moldex3D Digimat-RP is an important new feature to demonstrate CoreTech System’s devotion in furthering Moldex3D’s simulation capacity for the development of FRP products. It combines the expertise of Moldex3D’s true 3D analysis on injection molding and Digimat’s specialized technology in advanced material modeling to provide a straight-forward workflow that streamlines the engineering process for FRP part development. “We are very pleased to join forces with CoreTech System to make Digimat-RP available directly from within Moldex3D, offering our common customer bases the ability for concurrent engineering of the molding process and FRP part design for optimal performance,” says Dr. Roger A. Assaker, CEO of e-Xstream engineering and Chief Material Strategist of MSC Software.

Additionally, a new simulation module for Resin Transfer Molding (RTM) is another perfect extension of CoreTech System’s commitment to the field of composite product manufacturing. Through Moldex3D’s true 3D simulation, a complex geometric design and intricate, interchangeable material mechanisms in a multi-layer fiber design structure can be truthfully visualized which further helps improve and optimize the RTM process.

Another significant feature in R14.0—Hot Runner Steady (HRS) Analysis is also an innovative tool that directly addresses the troublesome flow balance issue in today’s complex hot runner system designs. Moldex3D’s solver will conduct a HRS Analysis based on the layout of the hot runners and the flow rate of each gate can be attained as a valuable reference for users to understand the flow behavior in order to fully examine and optimize all aspects of their hot runner design. Furthermore, HRS analysis provides 15 times faster computing speed than Filling Analysis with the same level of simulation accuracy. It raises the possibility of including more design changes in the same timeframe and ultimately helps maximize productivity.

Dr. Venny Yang, President of CoreTech System (Moldex3D) states, “Our core mission is to assist our customers to keep ahead of the competition in today’s fast-changing business environment and with this goal in mind, we are constantly talking to our customers and listen to their feedback in order to develop useful solutions that really help them design and manufacture high quality plastic parts.” He continued, “The release of Moldex3D R14.0 is the true reflection of this ultimate goal as it includes our answers to numerous customer-driven enhancement requests, innovative simulation capabilities for advanced processes, and multiple improvements on software functionality and solvers’ performance that will truly bring tangible values to our users to compete in their market sector.”

Moldex3D Project adds predictions of gate contribution for users to measure the flow field from each gate as a reference for optimizing gate location designs. At the same time, it supports more result displays on surface, including velocity vector and volumetric shrinkage, which allow users to evaluate 3D analysis results more conveniently. Moreover, users can compare XY plots from different selected run results and import or export these data curves as a CSV file for further discussion. In parallel to the release of R11.0, a brand new result visualization tool, Moldex3D Viewer, is ready for beta testing. Users are able to export selected result items with a very compact file size for sharing design and simulation knowledge over Internet among the team, suppliers and customers.

High Performance Computing

Moldex3D R11.0 employs Intel® MPI Library as the parallel processing communication protocol. Its computing speed will increase by 5-10% in comparison with that in Moldex3D R10.0 under the same CPU cores. At the same time, it also adds support for the parallel processing capability of Graphics Processing Unit (GPU). It can accelerate the computing speed by 10-20 times for a Standard Flow analysis and by 2-4 times for an Enhanced Flow analysis.
