    I see i was summoned :)

    It would definitely be possible to add a featurescript to create sprues, runner, and gates.  I have the coding know-how, but i dont know enough about the problem domain to do a good job, so i'd need to be paired with someone who could assist me with how it would work.  It would be possible to create an entire mold from a part, i guess, too: but i suspect that it would be a BIG input dialog because its not a trivial process at all, i know that much!

    If i could get guidance on what FS would work well, i'll be happy to look into it.

    For those who like to leave drafting their part til the very end of the model (like me and @PeteYodis) I created the Featurescript "Part Draft" feature just for us!  :p
