This overview lists typical mold design tasks and the SolidWorks functions that provide solutions to help you complete those tasks.

Task categories:
Procedural Procedural tools create the mold and tools that enable you to display the model along different stages.
Diagnostic Diagnostic tools show problem areas on the model. As you create the mold, you can examine the model for potential problems that might prevent the core and cavity from separating.
Corrective Corrective tools repair the flaws, such as surface gaps, discovered by the diagnostic tools
Administrative Administrative tools manage the models, facilitating the flow of information between designers, engineers, manufacturers, and managers.
