May 23, 2014 -- Missler Software will launch TopSolid’Mold 7, its new generation mold CAD/CAM software, at AmeriMold in Novi, Michigan (11th and 12th June, booth #625) and at the French FIP show in Lyon (17-20 June, Hall 6.1 booth #G3). TopSolid’Mold is an integrated CAD/CAM solution for the design of molds and the machining of tools for mold makers and cutting tool makers. To be efficient a CAD mold making solution should propose increased automation for repetitive mold design operations. In order to manage all projects the CAD software should ideally be completely integrated with a CAD/CAM solution that can manage all shaped forms, general mechanical engineering and machining operations in a parametric and associative way. Thanks to these qualities TopSolid’Mold has become a worldwide reference in the design and manufacture of molds.
TopSolid’Mold has been regenerated and completely rethought for all mold makers.
Among exciting new features for TopSolid’Mold 7 are:
Easy to use, new intuitive interface: TopSolid’Mold 7 offers a greatly improved ergonomy and proposes a much more modern and up-to-date graphical interface with more modern graphical possibilities which are better adapted to modern day CAD/CAM software use. This new technical make-over is based on the Windows 7 platform and offers such innovations as core video architecture improvements to the exciting new multi-touch user interface extensions to TopSolid users.
A powerful Split module: able to manage inserts from the split stage. TopSolid’Split, which is available within TopSolid’Mold, manages the automatic detection of parting lines, creation of parting surfaces and core and cavity blocks.
Intelligent standard components: On average 70% of a manufactured product is made up of standard elements. Hence the need to constantly improve and offer more standard and intelligent components. TopSolid’Mold 7 offers fully customizable standard mold bases, ejector pins, guiding, etc.
Total control of your mold data: TopSolid’Mold uses the best its fully integrated and transparent PDM solution. The user can manage and link all data from product design to toolpath management (with a built-in and transparent PDM solution). The result is that all modifications occurring at any stage of the design and manufacturing process are automatically updated thereby ensuring a systematic tracking system for all changes.
Optimized performances for heavy modifications: TopSolid’Mold 7 enables users to work faster thanks to such functions as partial loading, differed operations and quick 2D views.
Rheological analysis: available within TopSolid’Mold, TopSolid’PlasticFlow carries out a rheological analysis on plastic parts with the results being visualized directly in TopSolid. This offers TopSolid’Mold users an optimised tool for the design of plastic parts and can be used as a first step in determining the feasibility, quality and cost of designing their parts and injection molds. Thanks to the integration within TopSolid’Mold any modification made to the part will result in the simulation being automatically recalculated.
TopSolid’Mold 7 is available in the following languages: French, English, German, Italian and Brazilian Portugese.
About TopSolid 7
Completely based on new software development technology, TopSolid 7 responds to the increasingly complex industry needs. TopSolid 7 is in fact the result of 6 years of intense development which has permitted the integration of such technological advances as MultiCore, PDM, web compatibility, software components and computer-generated images. The first TopSolid 7 clients in the mechanical engineering field have experienced time gains in the region of 20 to 30%. Missler Software wishes to keep an excellent compatibility and between the TopSolid versions 6 and 7. In this way its customers benefit from a whole new technology while keeping all know-how they have built up with version 6.
