We can use SOLIDWORKS Draft Analysis to see if a part is ready to be moulded. It makes use of colour highlighting to show which parts of a model's face have enough draught to be easily removed from a mould.

Select the draught components to alter under Faces to Draft under Drafts to Change. You choose the two orange-colored outer faces in this example (one each on opposite sides of the horizontal cylinder). To change the draught for the selected faces, set a value for Draft Angle and click Change.

You can use draught analysis to check draught angles, look at angle variations inside a face, and find parting lines, injection, and ejection surfaces in parts.
