Course Overview

Moldex3D is a True 3D simulation software for injection molding. This course is designed to help users understand the benefits of using Moldex3D to achieve good part quality while reducing time and effort involved in mold trials. By the end of this course, users will be able to realize the importance of simulations as well as gain insight into how to set-up and launch a simulation in Moldex3D and interpret results.

Instructor Biography:

vallurySrikar Vallury is the Engineering Manager at Moldex3D. He graduated with a Masters degree in Mechanical Engineering from Oregon State University and then, moved to Michigan for his first job in the automotive industry. In 2013, Vallury made the transition to the plastics side when he joined Moldex3D and immediately fell in love with his job. As an engineer, he spends his time helping designers / engineers visualize and resolve their design or manufacturing issues through simulations. Being a strong advocate of simulation, Vallury focuses his efforts on ensuring the software application meets expectations of the industry / user community.
