FaceWorks contiene todas las herramientas necesarias para producir moldes de alta calidad desde el entorno de SolidWorks, incluyendo la creación de cavidades, núcleos, deslizadores, elevadores y subinserciones mediantes técnicas de modelado 3D y operaciones asociativas.

FaceWorks provides powerful design tool that automate and simplify the most difficult and complex tasks in the mold design process in SolidWorks. It was specifically developed and tested with continous input from mold designers and manufacturers. Users benefit from standard SolidWorks functions complemented with specialized, easy-to-use tools that simplify the tool-making process dramatically and minimize costs and manufacturing times.

FaceWorks contains all the necessary tools to product high quality molds within the SolidWorks environment. The advanced modeling tools include: creation of cavities, cores, sliders, lifters and sub-inserts using 3D-solid modeling techniques and associative operations. FaceWorks performs the parting process on either a solid model or a sewn set of surfaces (skin) that do not form a solid.
