Cavity and Runner Layouts

You can create dedicated boundary conditions for cyclic and symmetric cavity and runner layouts. You can also preview the cavity and runner layouts during the modeling stage to confirm their design specifications.

To open the Symmetry or the Cyclic PropertyManager:

In the PlasticsManager tree, right-click Boundary Conditions and click Symmetry or Cyclic .

You can use solid bodies and sketch-based runners to create the layouts. For cavity layouts with symmetry conditions, you can also visualize results for the whole layout, even though the simulation runs only for the symmetric part.
