Video: Get Plastic Parts Right the First Time

Ensuring strength, rigidity, and easy assembly of your plastic parts can be a challenge.

The analysis tools in SOLIDWORKS Simulation and SOLIDWORKS Plastics allow you to test various design alternatives early on in the development process and ensure the best design can be molded properly without costly rework of the mold later on.

This short video will show you how to design your plastic parts right the first time and ensure:

  • Optimal plastics material selection based on your requirements
  • Melted plastic flows properly through the entire mold cavity
  • Uniform wall thickness and other features essential to successful injection molded parts
  • Assembly and manufacturability of your designs


To learn more about plastic part design best practices, watch the 22-minute webinar for best practices to optimize your plastics part designs, eliminate costly mold rework, improve part quality and decrease time to market.
