In this chapter, the module features of cooling analysis will be clarified. Moldex3D 3D solid cooling channel analysis module supports both eDesign mode and Solid/BLM mode. The first step for this analysis is to prepare mesh for cooling channel. When using eDesign mode, the software will automatically allow 2D STL cooling channels to utilize 3D solid cooling channel analysis, while Solid/BLM mode requires 3D solid mesh of cooling channel for that analysis. For how to generate cooling channel mesh, please refer to other chapters in Pre-processing tool.

Mesh and analysis type for Solid/BLM mode cooling channels and moldbase must have solid mesh [standard cool] If cooling channels are left 1D(Line) or 2D(STL) [fast cool] only Basic or Network can be supported
