With the latest version of Autodesk Moldflow, the 2023 version, in addition to many other additional features that increase productivity, there are also new flexible licensing models. We have presented these for you on this page.

Moldflow switches to Named-User – from now on, everything is very simple

  • Personalized licenses (account-based)
  • Unlimited account switching possible
  • Full Adviser Ultimate expansion level
  • Additional Fusion 360 + Simulation Extension license included
  • Access without VPN
  • Reduced license management effort
  • Global usage rights
  • Access to Moldflow Flex offers (from April 2023)

Moldflow Insight

  • Personalized licenses (account-based)
  • Unlimited account switching possible
  • Full access to all Moldflow technologies
  • Additional Fusion 360 license included

  • Reduced license management effort
  • Global usage rights
  • Access to Moldflow Flex offers (from April 2023)
Numerous solver improvements and additional features

With Synergy/Insight 2023, accuracy improvements were the main focus. Optimizations were made to a variety of calculation solvers, such as Midplane Injection Molding, 3D Fiber Orientation Prediction, 3D Gate Location Prediction, and Cool (BEM) Solver. Additionally, it was introduced that with 3D elements, grid structures can now be simulated quickly and without much meshing effort (as shown in the image). Furthermore, shrinkage compensation was programmed so that individual cavities can now receive different shrinkage allowances.

Features from 2021 / 2022 / 2023

Simulation Compute Manager

A new Simulation Compute Manager (SCM) replaces the previous Simulation Job Manager (SJM). It improves job stability and broadens the scope of sharing job status and monitoring simulations with a browser-based interface.

Automatic pack/hold profile

The new automated pack/hold option improves accuracy while reducing user set up time by calculating an optimal pack/hold profile instead of a single value, as the default option provides.

Result scale customization

A new series of viewing options for result display provides easier visibility of flow patterns and other results. These scale coloring options enhance the result interpretation experience for all users, including those with color restrictive vision.

Retractable core pin constraint

This new constraint allows the specification of a retraction time for a core or part insert, after which the constrained region will no longer effect the molding process.

Reactive microcellular injection molding

To expand the simulation capabilities of microcellular injection molding, new solvers have been added to now simulate this foam molding technique with reactive materials.

Enhanced 3D sink mark results

Moldflow Adviser and Insight 2023 both deliver improved accuracy to 3D sink mark results with the updated solvers. It can now capture shallow and wide rib features on plastic parts.

Application Programming Interface (API)

UI and solver API is now available across all license levels of Moldflow Insight, for a greater ability for customization and automation in workflows.

New API functions for fiber orientation and molding machine support broaden the scope of automation capabilities.

Solver accuracy improvements

Updates to the Moldflow 2023 solvers have been implemented for improved accuracy of your simulations. This includes calculations for semi crystalline materials, weld surface prediction, valve gate controls, and improvements to composite material mechanical property predictions.

Over 12,500 materials

Moldflow 2023 has reached over 12,500 material grades pre-loaded within its database. This release added almost 1.000 grades, and continues to support manually loading in your personal materials for even more possibilities of material choices.
