We listened to our users who enjoy using our online tools and decided to create an offline tool too. This is great for both you and us because we've had more users recently, which means higher bills for cloud computing. To keep offering you free service, we've put all the algorithms into a python executable that you can easily download here.
1. Download cycle time calculator here
2. Execute (works on everything that is Win7 SP2 and up)
3. After successfully upload the 3D object, you have to select the input. As of now, there is a limited selection of plastic materials and cavities available. This is due to the design aspect of the mold in regards to cavities.
4. Click "Calculate" to let the software compute the estimated cycletime.
In the future, we will be implementing some changes that will improve the accuracy of our cycle time estimation and expand its use cases.
