AbstractThe purpose of the paper is to present the design of a new plastic part and injection process simulation. Workflow in virtual modelling and simulations in CAx system was presented on an example of the trolley plastic car for kids. The model of the plastic car was designed and simulated to determine the injection parameters in SolidWorks environment. Based on the 3D model of the product the mould tool was created. From the virtual testing the most suitable injection point location, material temperature as well as the fill time and required injection pressure have been specified. With these results the designers can avoid anomalies or defects in real plastic things with the actual injection process parameters, like: air traps, weld lines and sink marks. Such analyses allow the designer to develop a proper mould 3D model, to save the mould setup time as well as to reduce the cost for manufacturing the mould.
