Different types of tooling require different strategies for designing cooling channels, so the ability to Add Cooling Item with Channel was added in E11. This new function allows you to place a standard cooling component such as a plug or baffle, while at the same time extending a drilled hole out into the mold plate. Several options exist for automated control of the drilled line length, but you can also choose a simple delta value or even no hole at all. When using automated hole length, you have the option to define a safety distance around the channel to prevent any collisions with other mold features or components. This new function works especially well for placing baffles, as it will automatically adjust the baffle lengths to be near the surface of the cavity.
