Preview Sink Marks

Inspire Mold can show you a preview of the predicted sink marks in your model.

You must first designate a part cavity and create at least one injection point.
  1. Click the Runner System icon.

  2. Click the Sink Marks icon.

    The Calculating Sink Marks window opens.

    This process may take several seconds, depending on the complexity of your model. Finally, the Analysis Explorer opens.

  3. Use the Result Types menu to select between Sink Marks and Thickness result types. This preview can help designers improve the configuration of the model's gates.
    Note: This preview analysis shows only the outer shell of the part, and only two result types. For a complete analysis, use the Run Analysis tool.
