Repack Cast-Designer Software to fulfill the requests of ‘Time to Market’ in die casting
【HONGKONG – March 20th, 2011】 – C3P Software, a pioneer supplier of CAX solution for industrial manufacturing processes, announces today CAST-DESIGNER V5.3.4 with the new repackage of modules to fulfill the strong requests of ‘Time to Market’ in die casting industrial as the success of CAST-DESIGNER and CAST-DESIGNER CPI V5.3.
Cast-Designer is a software system to assist casting system design and analysis based on upfront design & analysis technology. It is expert system and CAE technology built from day one specifically for integration within the design process. This innovative software puts fluid flow analysis, heat transfer and solidification analysis into the hands of the same people who are responsible for developing the casting, mould and making engineering decisions. It is much more modest in its capabilities than tradition numerical simulation, but can provide some of the same insights.
With Cast-Designer, the user can detect part features with potential flow and solidification problems, evaluate gate system and overflow design alternatives, and generally evaluate castability. The user does not have to be an expert in simulation and the time required for evaluating a casting design is remarkably quick. In other word, Cast-Designer can help industrial to achieve the target of ‘Time to Market’.
The new package of CAST-DESIGNER V5.3.4 includes four modules:
CAST-DESIGNER Basic is an efficient expert software tool which assists the designer to develop a gating system for die casting quickly that matches the “Time to Market” requirement in today’s business.
Cast-Designer CPI (Casting Process Insight) is the sole really practical tool on the marketing today to support designer and engineer to make fast decision for casting part and mould design. It can analysis the filling process and predict fill pattern as well as heat transfer and solidification process in upfront analysis technology. 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.
Cast-Designer basic for MCAD can be a plug-in to fully integrate in the existed MCAD system with better integration and data sharing. The support MCAD systems include Pro-Engineer of PTC, UG NX of Siemens and Solidworks of Dassault Systemes at this moment.
Cast-Designer CPI for MCAD gives you high-end capabilities without the headaches. It is full spectrum fluid flow, heat transfer and solidification simulation built specifically for die casting product and mould design engineers using existed MCAD system. Another unique feature of Cast-Designer CPI for MCAD was the simulation was driven by CAD data. The meaning is, your CAD geometry will drive the simulation process. When you make a design change in CAD system (such as Pro/E, UG NX or Solidworks), you see the change instantly in CPI in a few seconds. It’s hassle free.
The benefits of CAST-DESIGNER are very clear. With the helps of CAST-DESIGNER, the designer can design a gating system within 30 min, validate a design plan within one hour and compare 4 to 5 plans to make final engineering decision within one day. This is also our commitment to industry on ‘Time to Market’.

Cast-Designer for MCAD was fully integrated into the Pro-E system, after the casting design, one button can shift to Cast-Designer working environment for gating system design as well as the 3D casting data could be transferred automatically.
Finally, the designed casting system would be brought back to Pro-E system automatically for assembly or link to CAM for manufacturing. The advanced features of MCAD system still could be used free, such as Boolean operations, filleting and surface cleaning etc.
