Where Should I Draft on My Injection Molded Part


Draft is necessary to include in your injection model to avoid drag issue during injection molding. What is draft? How should we set a proper draft on my Injection Molded Part? Here, we are talk about it in the following article.


Draft: creating angles or tapers on features such as ribs, posts, walls and bosses that lie parallel to the ejection direction. How a specific feature is, it always determines the type and degree of draft needed. Features such as holes or pockets should taper thinner as they extend into the mold. There may not need draft for surfaces that steel separates before ejection. Also, the other guides for designing draft include:


1.   Draft should be considered for all surfaces parallel to the mold separate directions.

2.  Angle walls and others attribute in both mold halves to assist ejection and retain uniform wall thickness.

3.  Using the standard one degree of draft plus one additional degree of draft for every 0.001 inch of texture depth to avoid any potential risk of drag issue.

4.   If design permitted, use a draft angle of at least one-half degree for most materials, and set the draft as bigger as possible for easy part ejection. SAN resins typically require one to two degrees of draft.
