Moldflow Corporation (NASDAQ:MFLO), the leading provider of plastics simulation software that empowers more users to optimize more designs across their enterprise, has announced the release of Moldflow Design Link™ (MDL™) 6.0, a software product that allows the direct import of solid geometry data from some of the world’s leading CAD systems into Moldflow’s analysis solutions. Using MDL, native CAD data from CATIA V5®, Pro/ENGINEER®, SolidWorks® and Parasolid™-based CAD systems can be seamlessly imported into Moldflow Plastics Advisers® (MPA®), and Moldflow Plastics Insight® (MPI®) software.

MDL 6.0 introduces a next generation mesh generator which was developed from toolkits licensed from Simmetrix Inc., a leading provider of component software for simulation-based design and CAD/CAE integration. Key features of this mesh generator are:

    * CAD-kernel Driven Surface Meshing – Directly generate Dual Domain™ or 3D meshes from the CAD geometry. Resultant meshes are analysis-ready, conform better to the part geometry and have fewer quality errors.
    * Multi-component (Assembly) Meshing – Simultaneous mesh creation for all components of an assembly while ensuring that contact surfaces of mating components are perfectly matched. This feature brings about significant time savings and simplifies the workflow for users working with multi-component models.
    * Direct 3D Meshing – Previously, an intermediate Dual Domain mesh was created and then remeshed to 3D. By eliminating this intermediate step and creating 3D meshes directly from the CAD geometry, MDL 6.0 improves user productivity.

Additionally, MDL 6.0 supports the latest versions of CAD systems including CATIA V5 R18, Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire® 4.0, and SolidWorks 2008.

Ken Welch, Chief Operating Officer at Moldflow Corporation, states: “Ever increasing model size and complexity, a growing trend in the design and manufacture of multi-component plastic parts, and shrinking project lead times were the drivers behind the development of this next generation mesh generator. MDL 6.0 addresses these needs by delivering faster, scalable, and robust meshing capabilities.”
