Changing Configurations In SolidWorks Plastics

An injection molding analysis on different configurations of the same part leading to different results

Cooling Time and Air Traps of a Part with Two Configurations

You might have realized your initial part is not ideal for molding. Air might get trapped or it could take too long to fill up or cool down. If you wish to modify your original part, you could create a new configuration. Then you can apply the same tests you used on the newer part to see if your modifications have made any improvements. The video below will explain how to do this.
