FaceWorks provides powerful design tools that automate and simplify the most difficult and complex tasks in the mold design process in SolidWorks. It was specifically developed and tested with continous input from mold designers and manufacturers. Users benefit from standard SolidWorks functions complemented with specialized, easy-to-use tools that simplify the tool-making process dramatically and minimize costs and manufacturing times.
FaceWorks contains all the necessary tools to produce high quality molds within the SolidWorks environment. The advanced modeling tools include: creation of cavities, cores, sliders, lifters and sub-inserts using 3D-solid modeling techniques and associative operations. FaceWorks performs the parting process on either a solid model or a sewn set of surfaces (skin) that do not form a solid.
