Calculate mould pull direction

Adam Lo's picture

Can anyone suggest how I might use open cascade to calculate an optimal pull direction of a part from a mould.

One idea would be to rotate the part and calculate a draft analysis on the part. If there are no problematic faces then the given rotation would determine a good pull direction. Otherwise rotate and try again. Would this be possible in opencascade?

Any tips appreciated. I am a beginner.
