Sensitivities of the mould stiffness and heat transfer design result to the mould structure design parameters were analyzed. Based on the parameters of the mould structure design, the temperature difference of the mould surface should be reduced, the stiffness of the mould be increased, and the mass of the mould should be reduced as much as possible. In the process of designing, proper thickness of molded surface is of most importance, then come proper numbers and sizes of air vent.
