Mold Design Surfacing

I currently have a seat of NX with Mold Wizard.  To all those mold designers out there using NX, are you able to split cavity/core without advanced surfacing capabilities?

I was recently told that Mach 3 Product Design Suite was 'essential' while using the Mold Design Suite.  Does this sound accurate?

Sometimes you have to make parting surface manual in mold wizard. so i think this is essential.

Thanks for the input.  I will split cavities using basic surfacing for now and get back to this thread thereafter.

So far, I have not seen the need for an advanced surfacing module (Mach3).
