Three Dimensional Parametric Design of the Die Channel for Plastic Extrusion Based on SolidWorks
Most die channels for plastic extrusion are always designed in traditional method,which will have many problems or by virtue of experience or inefficient.In this paper,parameterized feature modeling is realized by the development of solidworks 2008 based on VB(Visual Basic),and API(Application Programming Interface)provided by solidworks.Finally integrate the second development application program into solidworks by the way of add-in to achieve an embedded design system.The application examples verified that the design system can achieve prearranged development goals,namely simplifying designing procedure,greatly reduce the design time and improve the efficiency.
