The SolidWorks Mold tools give you a process by which you can take parts designed for the injection molding process and split cavity and core blocks for them, as well as additional core pins or slides. This process often requires manual intervention.
To work with the tools in this chapter, you must understand how surfaces work. Features such as the Boundary Surface, Knit, Trim, and others are covered in Chapter 32, “Working with Surfaces.”
This chapter introduces you to both the formal Mold Tools process and the less-formal manual Mold Splitting methods used in the industry.
