VISI Mold & VISI Progress
The development focus for VISI Mold and VISI Progress was aimed at design efficiency and user experience. Mold makers will see significant enhancements to cooling, component libraries and a new tool for lubrication grooves. Die makers will benefit from major 3D strip upgrades and 'instance' support for punches.
Mold - Cooling
Secondly, it is now possible to manage Cooling channels within Solid Groups. Importantly, it is also possible to manage a solid with subtracted Cooling channels as an instance. In this case, When copying or transforming the instance, the relative Cooling data will be managed and updated accordingly. It is also now possible to add a standard element directly during the cooling channel sketching process.
1. The cooling/standard elements interface has been reviewed providing better management during the standard elements definition.
2. It is now possible to insert standard elements using the multiple selection within the cooling toolbox.
3. Within the cooling toolbox tree structure, the icon status will change in the event of the segment or solid losing the linking with the 3D plate.
Mold - Lubrication Grooves
|A new Lubrication Groove command has been developed for 2016 R1. This command allows to creation of lubrication grooves on the selected face of the plate using builders that provides the user with a number of shapes & customization parameters.|
|Parts Replacement using Instances management - This improvement applies any modification to the original master part geometry to be automatically added to the 3D strip without any rebuild, significantly saving time during the process. This new methodology provides an automatic associativity between the reference parts and the strip design. It is also possible to define Punches in the Strip using the instances management. This means that punches can now be managed as instances within the project (including the ability to extrude punches). Therefore any modification to the parent geometry will be replicated on all instances.|
