The Gate Location analysis is used to recommend injection locations for the part. This analysis works for all analysis technologies and is used as a preliminary input for a full Fill+Pack analysis.
You can choose between two algorithms when running a Gate Location analysis, the Advanced Gate Locator algorithm or the Gate Region Locator algorithm. The Advanced Gate Locator algorithm is used by default.
The Gate Region Locator algorithm determines and recommends suitable injection locations based on criteria such as the part geometry, flow resistance, thickness, and molding feasibility. The Gate Region Locator algorithm produces the Gate Location Analysis result.
The Advanced Gate Locator algorithm identifies optimal injection locations based on minimizing the flow resistance.
