This section will lead you through the analysis setup in default settings. Before starting an analysis, please make sure all the injection molding components of the model are properly set.
After setting up all the components of the model, double click New Analysis.
There are five sections in the Analysis Setup Dialog: Analysis, Process Condition, Project Setting, Mesh Level and Generate Report.
Choose the analysis process you would like to simulate from the pull down menu.
The available analysis processes are in accordance to your license.
Determine your basic process conditions. In this example, filling analysis is chosen; Only Filling time, Melt temperature and Mold temperature can be modified. In this section, Set Advanced Process shows how to set advanced parameters.
Mesh Level (eDesign)
Users are able to choose a mesh level. The default mesh level is Coarsest; a higher mesh level means a denser and larger number of elements with better analysis accuracy. In this section, you can also choose to ensure enough mesh layers. This function will ensure enough mesh layers during the mesh generation process. This will make the simulation more accurate, but a larger number of mesh elements will be created. In this section, Mesh Level, there will be a more detailed explanation.
After all the molding parameters are set, users can select to start run immediately or add current setting to batch list as a new run. When users check Start Run Immediately, the analysis process will be activated directly. Nevertheless, if you want to analyze later, uncheck Start Run Immediately to add the current setting to pending list, and the batch run will be activated when users click Start.
Users can check Local host mode to set the number of task for parallel computing. The number of task means the number of process will be launched on current host.
Users can also check Computer manager for remote computing.
In this section, Remote computing explains what are the necessary setups for remote computing.
