LABS - Project Scandium for Autodesk Simulation Moldflow 2013

Project Scandium

Project Scandium for Autodesk Simulation Moldflow 2013 software is a free technology preview that extends simulation capabilities by offering new capabilities to try out and provide feedback.

These new capabilities and extensions include:
  • New capability to analyse molds with conformal cooling channels - The targeted removal of heat from a part can be achieved using conformal cooling, and it is now possible to account for these complex cooling channels in an analysis using the Cool (FEM) solver.
  • New Thermoplastics Bi-injection Molding process for Midplane analysis technology - It is now possible to analyse the Thermoplastics Bi-injection Molding process, which involves injection of two different materials into a mold at separate injection locations, which are controlled independently by two different injection units.
  • New injection-compression and compression molding process simulation capabilities for 3D analysis technology - New molding processes are introduced to enable simulation of injection-compression molding and compression molding processes using 3D analysis technology. The new simulation capabilities are available for both thermoplastics materials and reactive (thermoset) materials.
  • New mechanical property prediction for long fibre-filled thermoplastics composites - It is now possible to account for the effects of fibre breakage and fibre/matrix debonding when predicting the mechanical properties of long fibre-filled thermoplastics composite materials.
  • New Buckling analysis option for 3D analysis technology - It is now possible to perform a buckling analysis of a 3D model. The Buckling analysis type option is available in the 3D Warp Advanced options dialogue when mesh aggregation is not used.
  • Solver enhancements address accuracy and speed - Enhancements have been implemented to improve the performance of analysis solvers.
  • The FBX export capability increases visualisation options among Autodesk products.
It is now possible to export analysis result plots as FBX (*.fbx) files so that they can be viewed and examined in Autodesk Showcase, Autodesk Maya, Autodesk Inventor Publisher, Autodesk MotionBuilder, and other applications that support the FBX format.


The Project Scandium Technology Preview can be installed and work side-by-side with other Autodesk Moldflow 2013 products. This technology preview expires on January 1st, 2013.
