Mode Allows Multiple Mold Design Elements to be Worked on at Once

In addition to improved performance for large molds containing more than 2,000 parts, TopSolid’Mold 2017 from Missler Software has added a “pre-study” mode that enables the overall job of creating the mold design to be split among multiple designers.

In addition to improved performance for large molds containing more than 2,000 parts, TopSolid’Mold 2017 from Missler Software has added a “pre-study” mode that enables the overall job of creating the mold design to be split among multiple designers. For example, one designer can be working on the parting lines, parting surfaces and general core/cavity splits, at the same time that another designer is working on the mold base, cooling layout and so on. The integrated product data management environment keeps all tasks in perfect synchronization, the company says.

This version provides access to an even greater standard library that now includes Misumi, Futaba, Pedrotti and Progressive Components. Additionally, in an effort to allow more freedom during the design process, it is now possible to directly define the bill of materials numbering sequence directly from any level of the design, drastically speeding up the documentation side of mold design, the company says.
