Structural FEM

Fully integrated simulation of the mechanical behavior of plastic parts subject to load or deformation

kunststoff spritzguss simulation cadmould


Parts subject to load or deformation with the finite element method (FEM) and outputs the calculated reinforcement effect of the fibers. This software thus permits a structural analysis to be performed directly within the simulation of the injection molding process.

With Structural FEM, you readily and rapidly achieve the best possible mechanical layout and a material and weight-optimized design for all plastic parts. An analysis performed with this user-friendly software ensures that the material selected is suitably tailored to the load and permits a straightforward comparison of variants such as ribs, wall thicknesses and fiber orientation. The result: decisively improved, cost-efficient engineering of the part, mold and process.


  • Calculates, on a fully integrated basis, the strains and stresses caused by external and internal loads, as well as the deformation due to forces, pressures, torque, gravity and centrifugal force
  • Simulates a very wide range of materials, such as non-reinforced and reinforced plastics, including fiber orientation, etc.
  • Permits molded part geometries to be readily imported via an integral CAD kernel in STL, IGES and other formats
  • Uses the integrated, extensive Cadmould® material database for plastics and metals
  • Makes allowance for temperature influences
  • Permits the dimensional accuracy of a part to be analyzed, including any deformation during assembly
  • Permits fixing points for parts to be readily defined
  • Provides advice on the design of plastic parts on the basis of material-specific critical strain
  • Visualizes results in animations and 3D sections
  • Can be fully integrated in Cadmould® with no additional interfaces required
  • Assists in the interpretation of results
