Research on Teaching Method of Mold Course Based on CAD/CAE/CAM Technology

Xueyi Li, Shuhui Ding, Junying Wei, Quanwei Wang


The teaching of the traditional mold courses focus on the illustration of theoretical knowledge. Therefore, associating the design, evaluation, and manufacture links as a whole is difficult. Students cannot shape system knowledge, thereby making the study difficult. In addition, traditional teaching cannot meet the current enterprise needs of talents who have mold CAD/CAE/CAM technology. This study presents a teaching method that applies CAD/CAE/CAM technology to mold teaching. First, the positive effects of these technologies on the mold design and manufacturing process are introduced. Thereafter, lamp cover is used as an example to establish a series of computer-aided teaching development processes using existing software for mold design, mold flow analysis, and machining simulation. Lastly, survey results demonstrate that the effects of the proposed teaching method are better than the traditional method. Moreover, students and enterprises are substantially recognized in this teaching method.
