3D Design & Mold
Advanced 3D Modelling Software
3D modeling or CAD (Computer Aided Design) allows engineers and designers to build realistic computer models of parts and assemblies. These models can be then 3D Printed or CNC machined as well as used to run complex simulations. A wide range of parameters can be simulated such as strength or temperature resistance before any physical models have been created, enabling a much faster and cheaper workflow.
Solid modeling creates solid 3d models as if they are actual parts, with a logical workflow which is similar to the processes which would be used to manufacture the part. Some of these operations include extruding, drilling and threading operations. Solid models can intersect, join and subtract objects from one another to create the desired part.
Another advantage of solid modeling is that it is usually parametric, meaning that changes, or parameters are saved at every stage of the modeling processes and can be edited at any time during the design. This is very useful as it allows features of the model to be quickly modified without needing to create the part from scratch.
Assembly modeling is also an important stage in solid modeling, allowing individual parts to be assembled together, forming complex models. Assemblies can be used to insert standard components such as fasteners or bearings, that have been downloaded directly from the manufacturers. Motion elements can also be applied to assemblies, allowing detailed motion analysis to be used to evaluate the mechanical performance of the design.
Improve the Efficiency and Productivity of Your Mold Design and Tooling
A mold is a hollow unit into which molten material is poured to form a casting. Mold design is the analysis, design, and refinement of molds for industrial manufacturing. Molds must be able to form the solid part out of the molten material, cool the part so it can solidify, and eject the part from the mold. The list of ways in which a mold can fail to accomplish these purposes is long and vivid.
It's not surprising that mold design has a critical impact on the cost-effectiveness and quality of molded parts and thus of your product. A bad mold can give you that sinking feeling in more ways than one.
Edeb Engineering, creates the most complex single-cavity and multi-cavity molds and casts with ease. Evaluate mold draft, undercut and thickness problems, and then automatically create parting surface and splitting geometry in a process-driven environment that’s simple–even for the occasional user–who needs to create complex tooling quickly.
