In simultaneously.this process, as long as operating in accordance with SolidWorks 2004 - 2010MCAD regulations, there should be no any data loss, Simulation driven by CAD data : With the CPI inand some advanced features of MCAD system could MCAD, your CAD geometry can drive the Software language: English, Japanese, Chinesebe used for final CAD assembly, such as Boolean simulation process. When you make a designoperations, surface cleaning and filleting, etc. change in CAD system (such as Pro/E, UG NX or Solidworks), you see the change in CPI in just a few seconds.

The data to run a numerical simulation is Solver Technology usually not available yet, for example runner geometry. Due to the complexity of the equation system to be solved, numerical simulation is too time Base on Finite Element Method (FEM) technology consuming, usually hours or even days. Setup the simulation model is also a heavy job. Numerical simulation provides a relatively high level accuracy, Fluid flow calculations are described by the full Navier-Stokes equation and couple to thermal analysis which is more than needed at conceptual design stage. Simulate the physical phenomena and mechanical behavior of metal filling, solidification and cooling process, such as temperature, velocity, pressure, liquid/solid factors etc. Innovation technology to speed up simulation in express, half hour to one half hour for almost cases Submit job to solver in directly and batch queue mode Both 32 bits and 64 bits solvers, Windows and Linux Support parallel computing technology for big or huge model Cast-Designer do the best to make a balance on easily usage, robust and functions, the user can solve at least 80% industrial problems in an express and effective way. Model SetupExcellent Mesh Technology Only one windows page to setup casting process, boundary condition and control parameters for flow, heat transfer and solidification simulation Very fast and robust meshing, fully automatically With rich material data in database casting and mould material could be Flexible to control the element size in different direction (X/Y/Z) selected from database directly Support multi solid geometries, no Boolean operation required before Pre-defined template for die casting process, as well as user can define the meshing process in free, such as piston velocity, pressure, mould size and HTC etc. CAD or mesh or mixed CAD & mesh as original data All conditions and parameters could be save as template file for future usage Special treatment for CAD defects, such as geometry gap, overlay, intersection or unclose Advance technology for tin dimension or complex region Advance mesh smoothing technology to match the geometry feature Result & Reporting Introduce special customized ParaVIEW as post-processors.
