The Injection Location Advisor assesses a part's geometry to identify up to four suitable injection locations by considering the specified material, process conditions, and mold opening direction.

To open the Injection Location Advisor PropertyManager:

In the PlasticsManager tree, right-click Boundary Conditions and click Injection Location Advisor.

The following table describes the options of the Injection Location Advisor PropertyManager.
Number of locations Specifies the number of the suitable injection locations (maximum of four).
