The Moldflow Sensitivity Study, a design of experiments (DOE), determined the impact of common Autodesk Simulation Moldflow Insight software processing inputs on common results. It also helped to determine the level of interaction among these settings and the impact of material- and geometry-specific interactions. We will highlight the methods used for performing the study, including tcodes, tcodesets, scripts, the Moldflow command shell, creation of studies, modification of studies, extraction of results, and more. Attendees will be able to repeat a similar study with their own commonly used geometries and materials. Study results will help Moldflow Insight users to increase efficiency by reducing design optimization time and determining the magnitude of impact of commonly used process settings. Note: This study included some functionality not currently available in the Moldflow Insight DOE module.
- Determine the magnitude of impact of manufacturing process settings on simulation results
- Create modified studies and extract results from studies without using the Autodesk Moldflow Insight user interface
- Recreate a sensitivity study tailored to your product line and commonly used materials
- Reduce design optimization time
