The aim of this project is to represent the design of a mold in a 3D environment to produce an object by plastic injection and how cooling systems like conformal cooling affects the product and the all process.The design was made with the use of NX SIEMENS software. At first, is analyzed the process of manufacturing products from molds with plastic injection. Then, a reference is made about the NX SIEMENS software and the process where the product was designed. Also, the process of creating a mold through this software and the results of the casting simulation are analyzed. Finally, a reference for conformal cooling is made, how conformal channels are made and how it can optimize the production of products through molds.
