The Runner System is the filling system through which material travels from the injection unit into the part cavity. A well-designed runner system is crucial to manufacture high-quality parts and avoid common molding defects.

Note: You can use the Create Runner tool to automatically create the entire runner system for your model including gate, runner, sprue and injection point.
Note: If your model already have at least one ingate, you can use the Create Hot Runner tool to create a hot runner system with valve gates.
