Smart Runner

A properly designed gating system ensures uniform filling of molten metal into the mold cavity, minimizes turbulence and air entrapment, reduces porosity and shrinkage, and achieves optimal solidification control. The Cast-Designer software by C3P Software allows users to create, analyze, optimize, and visualize gating systems based on their specific geometries and requirements and simulate the entire die casting process including filling, solidification, and cooling.

In Cast-Designer V7.8, C3P software has recently introduced a new function called “Smart Runner” to its package, which can automatically generate runner systems for even the most complex gating system designs. The Smart Runner function utilizes advanced algorithms and machine learning technology to analyze the gating system geometry and generate optimal runner designs based on user-defined criteria such as pressure drop, flow rate, and cavity balance. This automated approach ensures greater accuracy, consistency, and reliability in the gating system design process while saving engineers time and effort. This innovative feature speeds up the process by 20 times compared to manual design and provides superior results for die casting engineers.

Advanced 3D Runner Generation

In addition to its automated runner design capabilities, Cast-Designer V7.8 can also generate complete 3D gating systems more efficiently and accurately than traditional methods.

The user can create a gating system in a plan working space at first, then, the software generates a CAD projection from the plan mode onto the 3D die cavity, resulting in a fully realized and optimized gating system. This approach is ten times faster than traditional methods that rely on manual measurements and calculations to create 3D gating systems.

The greater efficiency and accuracy provided by the Smart Runner function enable designers to produce more complex gating system designs with ease, save time and effort, and optimize the performance of the final product.

“Thanks to the Smart Runner function, designers can explore multiple design options quickly and efficiently, fine-tune the runner system to achieve optimal performance, and avoid costly mistakes and rework. The generated runner designs are easy to modify and integrate with other components of the gating system, providing flexibility and versatility in the design process. Prof J. Zhang from Tsinghua University summarized.

“The Smart Runner function in Cast-Designer software has proven to be extremely effective at designing gating systems, even for complex applications such as Giga casting. For example, the runner system for a Giga casting may involve more than 20 or even 30 sub-runners in a fully 3D runner system.” David Keck, marketing director of C3P Software declared, “In many cases, designing such a complex runner system would take considerable time and effort using traditional methods. However, with the Smart Runner function, the same task can often be completed in less than 10 minutes, with greater accuracy and consistency than manual measurements and calculations would provide.”

CAE Modeling


The Cast-Designer software is a quick casting design and analysis tool which is based on Upfront Design and Analysis Technology. The core of Upfront Design and Analysis Technology is to allow engineers to conduct fluid flow, heat transfer and solidification analysis with the assistance of combination of expert system and CAE technology. So that it helps engineers to make a Right decision in the early design stage of a project. The Upfront design & analysis technology have already been becoming a very important role in main stream design process.


Flow simulation

Shrinkage porosity


The Cast-Designer provides a powerful tool to evaluate different design plans in fast and easy way.

For example, the existed casting part was steel with 23.5Kg, two design plans were studied.


With 27.2Kg riser and the solidification time was 853 sec, the final shrinkage porosity volume was 20.51 cm^3.

With 26.2Kg riser and the solidification time was 404 sec only, the final shrinkage porosity volume was 4.17 cm^3.

So, with the Cast-Designer Software, the users can optimize a casting design by detecting the part features with potential flow and solidification problems as well as evaluating difference casting systems in the early design stage. Even a novel with limited experience in simulation who can easier to undertake the design, setup in a very short period of time.

Welding Calculator

The weldability (also known as the joinability) of a material refers to its ability to weld. Many metals and thermoplastics can be welded, but some weld more easily than others. A material’s weldability is used to determine the welding process and to compare the final weld quality with other materials.

A built-in calculator can help users to calculate many useful results, which can be used for weldability analysis.

The Welding Calculator supports the planning and optimization of welding tasks such as the calculation of weldability, cooling time, preheating temperature, and the required filler metal quantities.
