Autodesk will demonstrate its PowerMill CAM software and its Moldflow mold simulation product. PowerMill 2018 features a new ribbon interface designed to simplify use of the software, continuing to help moldmakers create the 2D, three-axis and five-axis NC code needed to successfully machine complex of parts. The software’s Dynamic Machine Control provides enhanced tools to help optimize five-axis machine motion. Upgraded simulation tools combine improved image quality with the ability to pan, zoom, rotate and identify collisions and near-misses involving unmachined stock.

Moldflow’s plastic injection molding simulation tools are designed to help CAE analysts, designers and engineers validate and optimize plastic parts, injection molds and the injection molding process. The software supports direct data exchange with most CAD software tools, the company says.
