The following settings can be selected:
- Exclude gate surface and cold runners
Select this option if you do not want gate surface or cold runner elements to be taken into consideration during Warp or Stress analysis, either because you have not modeled them or because they will be immediately removed at ejection.
- Consider gate surface only
Select this option if the runners will be removed at ejection but the gate will remain attached to the part. The simulation will consider the effect of the gate on the stresses or warpage in the part.
- Consider gate surface and cold runners
Select this option if the runners and gate will remain attached to the part after ejection and you want the simulation to consider the effect of these on the stress or warpage in the part.
Note Cold runners and gates are typically removed at ejection and so their effect on part stresses can normally be neglected.
