The article deals with the mould running system design. The goal of design presented in the article was to propose the mould form so to be achieved the minimum waste for selected component. Studied component is intended to serve as a stopper in the automotive spotlight. The waste is considered the material that solidifies in the volume of plastic inside the running system. 3D model of the mould was created in Autodesk Inventor Proffesional software and then solidification of material was simulated in Autodesk Moldflow Insight software. There were designed three alternatives of running system at which the waste amount was evaluated. On the basis of the best solution, the real form was manufactured and placed into the injection moulding machine Arburg Allrounder 320 C.
