When working with an injection mold, rather than creating a volume, you can split a workpiece or a volume into one or two volumes. The system then creates features resulting from the split as assembly features.
Split mold volume created in Creo 3.0
Splitting does not change the workpiece or die block geometry. Whenever a workpiece or die block is split, the system copies the workpieces or die blocks into one or two volumes that you can then use when you create mold components or die blocks. To split a volume, follow these steps:
