Fast core-cavity parting to shorten leads time
Split parts directly using parting lines or region faces, saving you considerable time.
Supports both automatic and manual creation of parting lines, inner holes and parting face are provided to raise efficiency, especially for new designers.
Multi-cavity design & multi-product design can both be accommodated.
Extensive library of mold base & components for different standards
The built-in library of mold bases and standard part can be modified and personalized to be able to easily meet the requirements of different companies.

Your Secret Weapon to Create Cooling Channels
Cooling system design can be difficult because it’s at the end of the mold design process, before which, designers need to design the cavities, slides, etc. So when it comes to cooling system design, there will be many “obstacles” in the plate. This is often a 4 stage process.
In ZW3D cooling loops can be created with one command 
Cooling Loop. You can easily create two types of cooling loop — Single object or Two objects. Unlike the traditional method, you can directly generate the channels by continuously picking points at the locations you want, so you skip the steps like drawing sketches and creating pockets on the plate.
Efficient Solutions for Complex Electrode Design
Easy-to-use electrode extract tools allow you to deal with complex electrodes quickly.
Electrodes and 2D sheets can be correctly created in batches to save your time.
