Course Duration: 16/40 hours

Overview: The course material is designed to provide a working knowledge of the plastics industry through intelligent discussions and lectures. The bulk of the time in this workshop will be spent on the part design requirements imposed on the designer by the injection molding process. The instructor and course material provide a simplified and practical approach to designing products that will be created with plastic materials. Participants will recognize fundamental concepts necessary for designing products with plastics with respect to the various processes and available plastics.

The one-week course is a more comprehensive look at one or more specific manufacturing processes.  We also offer a more extensive study and usage of SOLIDWORKS and/or Creo.  You may also be interested in our One Week Manufacturing Class, a one-week course that covers die casting and forging, in addition to along with the plastic part design portion.

Introduction to Plastic Part design using your favorite constraint based modeling software. Focus on history thru best practices & making changes. This training course is developed for new and seasoned users who want to become proficient with plastic part design all in two days. We help you learn not read to you from an exercise. In this course we help design engineers learn how to make changes quickly to set them up for becoming expert faster. As with all Design-engine classes, participants keep the training material login and password for life

This class is the same as our others in the respect that all participants will be able to access password protected HTML training materials for later use after the workshop.
