Let’s talk about generic cooling lines from the Cooling Wizard

Let’s talk about generic cooling lines from the Cooling Wizard.

My Moldflow customers either seem to love or hate the Runner or Cooling wizards. I use the Cooling wizard to generate a quick cooling concept that I can compare back to my results from a Fill+Pack+Warp (FPW). The FPW results will not see any influence from cooling so these results could show less warpage than reality. On the other side, my warpage results from a generic cooling will likely be a “worse case scenario”. Our actual warpage results will likely be somewhere in between.

Once the tool is designed, a good suggestion would be to run a Cool+Fill+Pack+Warp with your actual cooling channels.

You can easily go to Geometry – Create Panel – Cooling circuit wizard and adjust the diameters, number of circuits, and length of the channels. If you would like – you can even modify the design slightly to be more conforming to your part.

Do you ever use the Cooling Circuit Wizard?

I hope you liked today’s Monday post as much as we did. Make sure to have a look at our next monday blog with some very exciting informations.

There are two open windows showing. The first one shows the cooling circuit wizard layout meanwhile the other shows the channels.
