I don’t need to create molds or tooling but I sometimes need to verify that a plastic part I’ve designed can be created. Is there a tool or analysis that can point out potential issues with my injection molded part? For example, draft angle is the wrong direction or there are undercuts.

The draft angles can be reviewed using the Analysis > Inspect Geometry > Draft tool. http://learningexchange.ptc.com/tutorial/456/using-the-draft-analysis-option
The thickness can be reviewed using the Analysis > Model Report > Thickness tool. http://learningexchange.ptc.com/tutorial/3429/check-for-3d-thickness
