Could we used a 3D model of a runner system to perform a plastic flow analysis in Solidworks Plastic?

Hi Everyone,

 

I understand that in Solidworks Plastic we would use 2D sketches to represent runner positioning and then we would use Solidworks Plastic to define the sizing of the runner system.

 

However, I want to see if a unique runner design can be used in Solidworks Plastic instead. What I mean by unique is that the runner  isnt just a cylindrical passage way for the plastic. There are certain inserts within the runner which will help guide the flow. As such, we would need to use the actual 3D model of the runner in the Solidworks Plastic simulation. Would that be possible?
