SOLIDWORKS Plastics is a powerful injection molding simulation tool that helps you optimize your plastic parts and injection molds. It is fully integrated with the SOLIDWORKS application.

SOLIDWORKS Plastics simulates the injection molding manufacturing process where melted plastic material (in the form of small pellets) flows under high pressure through a heated barrel and into a mold cavity. Once the plastic material cools down, it solidifies into the shape of the mold contour and conforms to the geometry of the desired part.

Injection molding is the most common method of plastic part manufacturing as it enables high volume production at low cost and fast cycle times.

By integrating SOLIDWORKS Plastics in the product development cycle you can:
  • Predict manufacturing-related defects on parts and molds
  • Avoid expensive mold rework
  • Reduce time to market
  • Improve overall part quality

SOLIDWORKS Plastics is offered in three product bundles:

SOLIDWORKS Plastics Standard, SOLIDWORKS Plastics Professional, and SOLIDWORKS Plastics Premium.
