Predict and avoid manufacturing defects in plastic part and injection mold designs, eliminating costly rework, improving part quality, and decreasing time to market.


SOLIDWORKS® Plastics delivers easy-to-use simulation for analyzing plastic parts and injection molds. It simulates how melted plastic flows during the injection molding process to predict manufacturing-related defects so you can quickly evaluate part manufacturability while you design.


Ensure parts are manufactureable during the design process. Easy to learn and use SOLIDWORKS Plastics Standard is fully embedded within SOLIDWORK CAD, so you can analyse and modify part designs at the same time you optimize for form, fit and function.


Builds upon SOLIDWORKS Plastics Standard to analyze mold designs. With easy-to-use tools you can quickly analyze single and multi-cavity and family mold layouts including sprues, runners,and gates to estimate cycle time and to optimize feed system design.


Includes SOLIDWORKS Plastics Professional with advance simulation Functionally to analyze mold cooling line layouts and part warpage. Optimizing cooling line minimize cycle times and decreases manufacturing costs.
