Hints and tips for Camshaft moulds?

Greetings everyone!

I am working on a camshaft mould this time for V12 48 valve engine. The process of making it is Hot forging through press machine. The camshaft is being produced on two stages. The original item is 35mm Ø round shaft.

The mould is being manufactured by a cnc 5-axis.

So i was wondering if you have any tips for the mould, that will make my life easier at Esprit programming, or if something doesn't look good to you from the design point of view. Do i need to add any flashes, or canals to "guide" the extra material?

Here some pics:

I am attaching the file too if you want to see more details:
