When producing injection molded products, we can only see the final product, but not directly observe what happen during the production process. However, if we can know how the melt state changes, it will be more helpful to understand the potential problems that may occur during injection molding. In Moldex3D Studio, the user can specify the probe everywhere, and obtain the history curve from the probe to understand how the melt state change during the injection molding.
Step 1: Open a project, set the materials, process conditions, analysis sequence and computing parameter, then execute the analysis.
Note: Increase the number of multiple time steps output to make the history curve results more accurate.
Step 2: Click the history curve at the Results tab. Select the analysis group and molding stage to be observed in the wizard, then select the data source from the data drop-down menu.
Note: In addition to the molding property, users can choose sensor node or probe node; sensor node should be set before analysis, solver will records the data of sensor node in whole analysis process to provide user observation; probe node can be established at any time through , program will read the multiple time step outputs data and draw the history curve for users to observe, so the accuracy of probe node data depend on the multiple time step output setting.
Step 3: Click the result drop-down menu and select the result and node to observe, click to draw the history curve result.
Step 4: Click on the top right of plot to call the Setting Wizard, users can customize the plot Tittle, X axis/Y axis, Legend and other settings in different tabs.
Step 5: In History Curve wizard, use to clear the selected curve or click / to export plot image/CSV.
