SplitWorks® is a revolutionary new product, using advanced technology, to automate the process of core and cavity separation and creation for the plastic molding, blow molding, sheet metal (progressive dies, bending), aluminum injecting, investment casting, wax molding for ceramics technology industries, including advanced technology to update the inserts after any modifications or additions to the part including changed IGES/Parasolid files!
SplitWorks’ intelligence begins by analyzing the part model and then displaying a color coated preview of the part, showing the potential core, cavity, zero draft angle surfaces and surfaces which belong to both the core and the cavity, according to the selected splitting direction.
The part may be a solid created within SOLIDWORKS, or imported from any other CAD system via SOLIDWORKS’ translators. SplitWorks will work even on non-solid geometry giving it a significant competitive advantage over other products.
The user can modifying the split direction, by simply clicking on a plane, planar face or edge, which dynamically updates the preview. Undercuts and “no draft” angle surfaces are analyzed at this stage allowing “you” to determine the best splitting direction.
The geometry is then automatically exploded into six groups (folders):
and automatically placed into the SplitWorks Property Page along with a parting line folder. This property page (along with the color coding and parting lines) is dynamically updated while modifying the part allowing you to gauge the implications of modifications made to the part.
