Part Design Guidelines for the Plastic Injection Molding Process

For design engineers who are new to designing for plastic injection molding, there can be a knowledge gap in making sure the CAD model is properly designed for this manufacturing process. There are certain, very specific design features that must be considered in the design stage in order to avoid moldability issues that can produce undesirable results in the molded parts. If they’re not considered from the beginning of the design process, and they’re not discovered until the Design For [...]

A Word on Designing For Manufacturability

In plastic injection molding, some part features must be designed a certain way, or problems can occur that result in undesirable appearance or functionality. For instance, bosses can be used in a part to attach it to another part. Design a boss wrong, and you could have thick sections that lead to sink marks. To help you avoid sink and other potential pitfalls in plastic part design, our Plastic Part Design Guidelines resource provides tips on Designing For Manufacturability (DFM). These [...]
