We recently looked at some of the powerful part mold analysis tools that are available in Creo Parametric. In this tip, we’ll show you how to fill loops on a parting line. If you’re working with a reference part in a mold assembly that contains holes, you need to cap them before you can split the mold. Here’s how:
The holes within the red circles need to be capped in order to split the mold.
Select the surfaces around the hole.
The holes are now capped (shown in orange).
To see a demonstration of these steps, check out this video on PTC Univerity’s Learning Exchange. You may need to create a PTC University Learning Exchange account if you don’t already have one. But the good news is that with a login, you’ll have access to hundreds of in-depth demonstrations and tutorials for PTC products.
