As the company i am working with are thinking of investing in some injection mould simulation (Autodesk Moldflow or Moldex 3D) i would like to know, if there is anyone who are familiar with both of these apps?
i am pretty welknown with both Moldflow insight and Moldflow Adviser, but i have never tried Moldex 3D, which looks very good, because it works inside the SW invironment, and you do not have to export part-files to do the simulation etc.
I have tried to google some comparisson between moldflow and moldex3D, but i cannot find anything
but if anyone have some experience or so with especially Moldex 3D, I would be glad to know!
What is the best format to use, when I export from Pro/E to SW?
I always use parasolid, when I export from solidworks, but i have experienced al ot of failures in the part geometry when i export from Pro/E to SolidWorks in parasolid.

Can anyone tell me, what i shall choose from the Hole Wizard -feature, to make a 1/8” whitworth thread?
I am only used to work with the metric system, but now i need to make an 1/8” thread in the end of a 6mm hole.
I have been looking in the ANSI INCH option to see if there is an 1/8′ thread, but i can’t find it there.
Best regards, Klaus.
Is it somehow possible to make a Broken-out Section in a Section view?
I have made a section view (A-A) in an injection mold, and now I wan’t to make a Broken-out Section in the A-A section view, but SW will not allow me to.
If someone can tell me how to do this, i would be very glad

as i am thinking of upgrading my hardware configuration, i would like to know, if anyone can tell what is the best of these two solutions?
1 x nVidia Quadro 4000
2 x nVidia Quadro 2000
Beside SolidWorks, i also do a lot of rendering in PV 360 and Keyshot.
When i upload the zip-file and the are pressing ”save changes”, the file dosent seems to apear with this post
I have a modelled a ”worm” (its for a fan) and i need to unfold it to a piece of sheet metal, so i can get the correct dimensions for cutting out the plate before bending etc.
dows anyone knows how to do that?
thanks in advance¨
Does anyone knows if it is possible to add the result of an equation in the scale factor-area i the scale-feature?
I have calculated a plastic shrinkage factor with the equation tool. lets say the result is 1,005025126.
now i wan’t to scale my model this. i know i off course just can copy/paste the number into the scale-feaure, but is there a way to choose the result of this equation in the scale-feaure? like it is possible to choose the result of an equation when adding a dimension etc.
i hope you understand my question :9
Thanks in advance!

Does anyone knows how to change the color of the dimension-arrows in the Drawing documents?
Now they are grey, and instead of that, i want them to be for example green.
Have been looking in the options, but I can’t find out how to do it
Does anyone knows how to model a chain, which can run like it would do in real llife?
Have tried to make a belt/chain feature between two gears, and then mate a chain-link to the path, but the chain link dosent move, which i would like it to do.
I am modeling an engine right now, and now i have some trouble with a cam mate, which will not work.
It comes up with an error, when i try to do the mate.
Does anyone knows what i am doing wrong, and how i can make it right?
Chekc the picture with the error-message.
I have tried to make the cam with a single spline (converted the entities to a fit spline) but that dosent worked either.
here is a link to the picture:
EDIT: i have found out what the problem was, and my cams run like a charm now
when i will offset a surface, the default distance is 10 mm.
Does anyone knows how to change this, as i almost always use a distance of 0 (copy surface)
