Plastic Part Analysis

Q.

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.
