Mould and Die Design in KOMPAS – 3D!


MCAD software solutions developed by ASCON are famous for their powerful functions in the mid – range segment. They are easy – to – use with a comfortable interface, reasonable pricing, and strong compatibility with other systems.


KOMPAS - 3D for Mould and Die Design

KOMPAS – 3D is a mechanical CAD solution for parametrically designing parts and assemblies as 3D solid models. KOMPAS – 3D effectively designs mould and die designs, analyzes them, and then generates the related design and drafting documentation.

KOMPAS – 3D key features and benefits

  • Operates as a 3D parametric solid modeller that supports an unlimited number of parts and assemblies
  • Incorporates the KOMPAS – Graphic solution for 2D drafting and design
  • Provides advanced 3D sketching tools that enable users to design skeleton structures
  • Flexibly edits parts and assemblies
  • Extends functions to sheet metal design
  • Quickly creates engineering and design documentation, such as assembly drawings, BOMs, and detail sheets
  • Includes libraries of standard symbols and parts
  • Imports and exports most of the common CAD and standard formats, including IGES, SAT, STL, Parasolid XT, STEP, VRML, GIF, TIFF, JPG, and Windows Metafile formats
  • Provides an interactive learning system through KOMPAS – ABC
  • Requires minimal hardware

Mould and Die Design

The Mould and Die design add – in helps automate the design, analysis, and construction of steel moulds used for making plastic parts from pressure castings. The add – in provides the following functions

  • Analyzes 3D models
  • Designs the shapes of die moulds
  • Models the mould channelling systems

Mould and Die Design add – in is a powerful system that increases the production performance of designers, improves the quality of the design, and so enhances the competitiveness of a company’s products.
