question from Shashidhar:

Hello,
Good day

When designing plastic parts, I try to define the Parting Line before adding the surfaces. The Parting line can be Curves, Join, or a Sketch.

If you are given a part and you have to design the mold, CATIA's CORE & CAVITY DESIGN workbench has many helpful tools, including the Parting Line command.

If you don't have that workbench, the Reflect Line command (GSD workbench) can be used to determine the Parting Line.
