    This class will discuss the tools available in Autodesk® Moldflow® Insight for simulating the dynamic temperature changes experienced in the mold during an injection molding process by using the Cool Finite Element Method (FEM) functionality. Topics covered will include modeling requirements, process setup and workflow, theory, result interpretation, and validation examples. Focus will also be given to new functionality available in the Scandium Technology Preview supporting dual-domain part models, thermoset molding and variable coolant inlet temperature processes, including Rapid Heating and Cooling of the Mold (RHCM), also known as Rapid Temperature Cycling or Variotherm. In addition, examples will be shown to demonstrate how to model complex 3D cooling channels (conformal cooling).

    Key Learnings

    • Simulate the new dynamic mold temperature control processes in injection molding
    • Set up a transient and conformal mold cooling analysis in Autodesk Moldflow Insight
    • Describe molding case studies performed to validate the "Cool (FEM)" technology
    • Explain the theory and assumption that underpin a transient mold cooling analysis
