CAST-DESIGNER FOR GRAVITY helps gravity casting industries ‘Make it right’

【HONGKONG – April 29th, 2010】 – C3P Software, a pioneer supplier of CAX solution for industrial manufacturing processes, announces today the release of Cast-Designer for Gravity, a new generation of express Casting Process Insight for gravity casting industries to fit the need of ‘Time to Market’.

Cast-Designer for gravity is a quick casting design and analysis tool based on upfront design & analysis technology. The core of the “upfront design & analysis technology” is to allow engineers to conduct fluid flow, heat transfer and solidification analysis by the assistance of combination of expert system and CAE technology, it helps engineers to make a “Right” engineering decision in the early design stage of a project. Upfront design & analysis technology has already been becoming a very important role in main stream design process.

With Cast-Designer, users can optimize a casting design by detecting the part features with potential metal flow and solidification problems, evaluating riser and chill, gate system and pouring system design alternatives in the early design stage. Even a novel with limited experience in simulation who can easier to undertake the design setup in very short period of time. In other word, Cast-Designer for gravity can help the industry to achieve the target of ‘Time to Market’.


Cast-Designer is a tailor-designed mould planning & simulation system for gravity casting industry. With the help of Cast-Designer for Gravity, the user can,

  • design one casting system in 30 minutes
  • validate a design solution in one hour
  • compare 4 to 5 solutions in one day


Gravity Casting Designer:

It is an efficient and flexible design tool which assists designers to develop riser and feeder, gating system and pouring system for gravity casting in very short time. It is possible to create the full casting system within tens minute to one hour for a typical casting part.


It is capable to reflect varieties of dynamics and physical behaviors of fluid flow, heat transfer and solidification in details. Comparing with traditional numerical simulation, CPI is solely based on CAD environment, and provides nearly real-time analysis results. The beauty of CPI is the full couple with the design functions of Cast-Designer and quickness to obtain the analysis results at the conceptual design stage.

Gravity Casting Designer for MCAD

Cast-Designer for MCAD is used as a plug-in to fully integrate to the existing MCAD system for better integration and data sharing. The support MCAD system includes UG NX, Pro-Engineer and Solidworks.


With its unique technology, Cast-Designer CPI can fully integrate CAE spectrum fluid flow analysis, heat transfer and solidification with the customer’s exist in g MCAD user environment, which enable product and mould designers involving to the design process together and making engineering decision promptly and simultaneously.


Cast-Designer CPI for Gravity can support a widely range casting process, includes sand casting, gravity die casting, tilt casting, low pressure die casting, los was/investment casting and lost foam.
