Supported File Types
NMC can import and export many CAD formats with our KeyCreator Software (formerly Cadkey). Ideally, a file produced from the native KeyCreator/Cadkey CAD package would provide the best results, but we can view many other formats listed in order of preference:
Simulation Software: Moldflow Mold Advisor
NMC uses this powerful tool to evaluate the "manufacturability" of a part design. A report can be generated that will graphically illustrate any concerns and establish confidence that a quality part can be produced. Additionally, this package can calculate runner and gate sizes, as well as cavity layouts. We strongly prefer native .STL files for this software.
1. Keycreator (Native Cadkey or Keycreator files)
An .stl file would be required in order to complete a Moldflow analysis, but NMC can also export the .stl file from your original file format. If you have a question regarding any other file type, please contact our Engineering Department.
