Cross Flow Modulus
Calculate the modulus of a glass filled material in the direction opposite fiber orientation.

Boss Calculator
Calculate the hoop stress and maximum allowable insert diameter.

Part Weight Calculator
Calculate the weight of a part using specific gravity and volume.

Fatigue Calculator
Use this wizard to determine the life of your cyclic loading applications. User defined material and stress level will yield a prediction of cycles to failure.

Thermal Stress & Expansion
Calculate the change in part length with at least one free end and the stress in the part with both ends.

Shear Rate Calculator
Determine gate size and design feasibility by calculating the maximum shear rate of plastic flowing through user-defined gate geometry.

Tooling Capacity Calculator
Calculate the number of tools required to meet expected production volume demands.

Plastic Gears
Determine the suitability of the plastic gear material for its strength criteria through SABIC physical properties, gear geometry and operating conditions of single stage gear pair.

Beam Calculator
Determine the beam deflection given user defined cross-section geometry.

Snap Fit
Evaluate the feasibility of your snap fit design using this tool. Calculated results include maximum strain and insertion and pullout forces.

Flow Calculator
A quick yet powerful analytical tool to determine if your part will fill with the given flow length, thickness, geometry and designated material by determining the max injection pressure required to fill it.

Stiffness Calculator
This tool will help determine the required thickness or maximum deflection of ribbed or flat plates. The graphical results are calculated based on user defined material, geometry, loading conditions and constraints.

Calculate the strip torque and pullout force for a threaded fastener.

Part Cost Estimator
Roughly estimate material and processing cost for a given part. This tool can be used to compare different material or design options.
