New features for Moldflow 2017

Learn about the new features in Moldflow® plastic injection molding software. This new release includes MuCell core back injection molding, cooling for overmolding, and access to cloud analysis.

    Injection molding

  • Cooling for overmolding New

    The Moldflow cooling analysis has been extended to gas-assisted injection molding and two-shot overmolding. The effects of part cooling can now be taken into account in filling and warpage, for both the first and second shot components.

    Manufacturing process

  • Chemical blowing agents New

    Use Moldflow Insight software to simulate chemical blowing agents for creating plastic parts with an internal foam structure.

  • MuCell core back injection molding New

    By using a combination of MuCell microcellular foam injection molding and core back technology from Trexel, you can dramatically improve the quality of foam structures. You can create a foam structure with more, bigger cells.

    • By moving the core side of the mold back by a small amount after the mold is filled, a sufficiently thick skin is formed.
    • Then, stimulating (expanding) the foaming process, core back creates a foam core with cells that are very regular and large.

    The result is a stiffer, lighter weight part than what can be achieved with conventional injection molding or with the MuCell (light weighting) process alone, without core back.

    User efficiency

  • Cloud service

    Flexible cloud solving options New

    With Moldflow, you can run multiple simulations in the cloud simultaneously, while you continue to work on other tasks on your computer.

    For example, if you're testing the setup of an analysis, use your local resources to iterate and optimize your setup. For longer, more computationally intensive simulations, use the cloud, and keep your local resources available for other work.

  • Analysis reports New

    Automation can bring huge time savings to repetitive and time consuming tasks. Easily generate, share, and communicate your Moldflow analysis results with your internal and external teams. Use the report generator to create template reports in HTML, Microsoft Word, and PowerPoint. 

    • Customize the templates with notes, images, and animations. 
    • Import the study or project files to open in Moldflow.
    • Or select the Moldflow results you want to share and export them to other programs.

    Moldflow tools for analysis reports help you reduce the time spent on creating great looking professional analysis reports.

  • Cloud service

    Access to cloud analysis New

    Run multiple analyses in the cloud with Moldflow Insight. Quickly solve larger analyses without compromising your local resource capacity.

    Buy cloud credits to tap in to extra solving capacity when needed and to run Design of Experiments (DOE). Save both time and computing resources. Get results more quickly, so you can understand your design parameters sooner.

    Cloud credits can be purchased by subscribers or maintenance plan customers. You can buy cloud credits from a reseller, directly from an Autodesk sales representative, or from the Autodesk Store through your Autodesk Account.

  • Usability improvements New

    Improvements in the latest 2017 release of Moldflow injection molding simulation software include: streamlined workflows, ribbon customization, surface mesh modifications, synchronization of clipping planes in locked windows, tools for simulating local mesh density, and more.
