Today, the time to market for metal casting products is becoming shorter, thus the lead time available for making the wax injection mould is decreasing. There is potential for timesaving in the mould design stage. This paper presents the basic structure of an interactive knowledge based wax injection mould design system. The basic of this system arises from an analysis of the wax injection mould design process for mould design companies. This wax injection mould design system covers both the mould design process and mould base standardization. In this system, the graphic module and the knowledge based module for generating mould features are integrated within an interactive Mold Wizard platform, Unigraphics system. This ensures that both speeds up the wax injection mould design process, without the need to redesign the mould base layout. With this capability, metal casting product could be designed quickly, cheaply with quality and competitively.
