FaceWorks features SOLIDWORKS with a structured mold design paradigm. It calculates the most optimal mold opening direction and automatically generates the splitting surface, separating the core from cavity. FaceWorks combines the best practices for solid and surfacing modeling concepts, offering hybrid and associative mold design for professionals. Specialized surface generation algorithms (not available in SOLIDWORKS) are used for automatic generation of parting surfaces with most complex forms (2.5D and 3D surfaces). Generated surfaces are simple for manufacturing. The parting surface can be easily modified to any desirable shape using guide curve loft function, allowing you to remove the parting line from the detail for aesthetic reasons. Automatic closing of openings and shutoffs saves hours of manual work, while full associativity saves time and money in adopting last-minute design changes. The design can be completed within hours versus days. FaceWorks drastically reduces engineering time, providing full return on investment within one to two projects.
