After preparing the surfaces and creating lines for feed systems, you generate mesh on the surfaces. The Generate Mesh group includes buttons for various mesh-related actions.


The Moldflow data deck can be used for three different types of elements: linear triangular elements, linear tetrahedron elements, and linear beam elements (rod inside HyperMesh).

Element Type



Opens the size and bias subpanel of the Automesh panel, which is used to create tria3 elements on surfaces.  Note that Moldflow decks do not allow quad elements.


Opens the Line Mesh panel, which is used to create rod elements for the design of the feed system and cooling circuit.

Layered TetMesh

Opens a secondary Utility menu page with tools to create solid 3D models.
