Interfacing CAD to Moldflow

Imtech Design and partner companies have a wide CAD interfacing capability and are able to communicate via most popular CAD software packages and interface standards.

A Moldflow simulation is generally based on a triangular finite element mesh. The mesh is created over a CAD representation of the product and forms a geometric mathematical description of the part. A wide range of CAD interfaces enable Imtech to import a CAD solid model and create a uniform FEA mesh over the entire surface of the product.

Imtech are able to supply other Moldflow users with a high quality accurate mesh ready to run, and usually in a matter of day's. Contact us for more information on outsourcing your meshing requirements.

Imtech Design have extensive experience with all Moldflow mesh types including:

Moldflow CAD Interface capability Fusion Mesh

Fusion- Dual Domain - Ideal for basic filling analysis.

Initial results delivered very quickly. Works well on parts with uniform wall thickness.


Moldflow CAD Interface capability
Mid-Plane Mesh

Moldflow MPi Mid-Plane showing 2D fill pattern image on a mid model.

Midplane- More complex model conversion from CAD than either 3D or Fusion mesh, but very detailed results and extensive capability. Our favorite for complex filling cooling & warpage analysis jobs including fibre orientation.

3D Tetrahedral Mesh

Moldflow MPi 3D mesh showing 3D fill pattern image through a 3D Tetrahedral mesh  model.

3D Mesh- Based on a Tetrahedral mesh for true 3D simulation through the part thickness. Ideal for analysing parts with a wide variation in thickness. The simulation shows results through the entire part thickness, predicts jetting and is excellent for Gas Injection simulation.

CAD Interface Capability:

Imtech employ Moldflow Design Link ( MDL ) for direct interface from CAD formats including: STEP, IGES, STL and PARASOLIDS. Other programs such as Altair Hypermesh expand our capability for producing complex mesh geometries from almost any CAD format.
