SOFTWARE / Moldex3D / eDsign / RIM
Based on the filling, packing and cooling analyses by Moldex3D Flow, Pack, Cool, Moldex3D Warp allows users to perform true 3D warpage analysis on thick parts and those parts that have extreme thickness changes. With Warp, users can easily and efficiently improve the part quality and optimize design. For fiber-filled material, Warp incorporates fiber composite theories and the fiber orientation results from Fiber to predict its anisotropic shrinkage and warpage. Furthermore, Warp links with I2 modules to interface with structural analysis software.
