Running Valve Gates in 3D

what you should focus on when using 3D Valve Gates in Moldflow

Moldflow Insight 2024 now has the ability to run Valve Gates in 3D!
Historically, we have always used beam elements on valve gate models. Now in 2024, we have the option to either use beams or 3D tetrahedral elements assigned as Hot Gate (3D). Please make sure that your 3D hot runner elements are modeled correctly with an annular cross section.
