Assignment #2 Due Mondayz Februm, 2004 (in class) Please use and print on regular letter-size (8.5X11) paper In this homework assignment, you are going to start learning how to use the Moldflow Part
Advisor (MPA) V6.0 program. You need to select a part geometry from E of the sample part .
designs (cellphone, cluster, icetray) located at the following directory in your CAE account (if it has not been changed):
G:\win32\MoldFlow_MPA_6\samples\ Outreach students will receive a CD that contains the Moldﬂow MPA trial version The trial
version only works for the example part designs in CAD solid geometry that come with the CD. You may want to copy these files (cellphonemap, clustermpa, icetraympa), which initially
contain only the CAD solid geometry, to your local directory to give you the Read and Write privileges of the ﬁles. You also need to select a material from the material database that comes with the software. Give
a short paragraph giving the reason (or rationale) why you select the particular material for the
type of applications. For the homework assignment, include the part geometry and the Viscosity curves of the material
you select together with the material selection reasoning (max. two pages). Do forget to include your name. Notes: Since the abovementioned directory is read only, you need to save the output files at your I:
drive. This can be done by “Save As” under the File menu. To run Moldﬂow Part Advisor v6.0, following the following menu choices:
Start -> CAE Applications -> Engineering -> M—S -> MoldFlow -> Part Advisor 6.0 For Outreach students, the demo Moldﬂow MPA software and example geometries (may be.
different from the three examples mentioned above) can also be downloaded at the Moldﬂow Web site (www.moldflowconi) and installed on your own PC. Questions, suggestions, and comments, please feel free to stop by in my office or contact me at
