The cost of change significantly increases as a part progresses from a concept to production. Having easy to use tools “spell-checking’ plastic part design and catching potential manufacturing pitfalls early can really save time and money. In this webinar you’ll learn how designers and engineers can:

  • Avoid and solve common mistakes in plastic part design early in the process
  • Evaluate the effect of design changes on manufacturability since most of the part cost is determined early in design
  • Communicate potential issues upstream to drive better collaboration and team tribal knowledge

Moldflow is celebrating 40 years as the trusted market leader in plastic injection molding simulation software that helps reduce manufacturing defects.  Join us and see how engineers are using Moldflow Adviser to aid them with their plastic part designs.
