Mold Layout


New member
Hi Gurus,

i am working on a multicavity mold so i want to use the mold layout functionality. but the Por/E does not show the required options in mold layout assembly. here is the procedure i am following.

in mold cavity appliction i click the mold>mold layout. it creates a new assembly and places you in mold layout window. here the options shown are apparent from the picture below.

View attachment 126

i can't assemble the mold cavity given the shown options nor i can see the molbase selection icon. please guide me what is the way out of the situation.

Thanks in advance
