In-mold stresses

  Import in-mold stresses from SOLIDWORKS Plastics Browse to the location of the *.POE binary file. The binary file stores:
  • Node coordinates and element connectivity of the original mesh
  • Nodal values for temperature and in-mold residual stresses (three normal and three shear stress components)
  • Material properties
  Include material from SOLIDWORKS Plastics If material has been assigned for the part in SOLIDWORKS Plastics, this option is selected by default. To apply a different material, clear this option and select a material from the SOLIDWORKS Material database.
You can import data from SOLIDWORKS Plastics Premium only for a single part that meshes with solid elements and uses a linear elastic isotropic material.
