A Swedish review of Visual Components

5 letzten Monat Neu

Kommentare: Very positive

Vorteile:

The versatility of the software has been a pleasant surprise. It has a lot of functionality and you can program pretty much anything in Python. There is also a vibrant community that has made great addons.

Nachteile:

Sometimes the CAD import requires some additional work, it often help to go through CAD softwares, but that takes a bit more time.

Versatile simulation software with unsurpassed CAD data support

4 letzten Monat Neu

Kommentare: The software helps me to quickly extract different components and create a preliminary layout. It wasn't until recently I really understood the importance of defining the components. If you put in the extra time to create frames in the right places of the component then the software will do a lot of the grunt work for you, and there are great tools for snapping and aligning that speeds up the process. Creating custom components has become increasingly easier the last couple of years and the programming of the components is really visual and hands on. I think one pretty unique thing that separates Visual Components from other simulation software is that it's being used in such a wide variety of applications, and even though some scenarios don't exist "out of the box" they're usually possible to script thanks to the API.

Vorteile:

You can throw basically any CAD model into the software and it will handle it with ease. The CAD data simplification tools are easy to use and can drastically increase simulation performance. Being able to present layouts and simulations in 3D PDFs, high quality renderings or lightweight animation format makes it easy to distribute content to anyone.

Nachteile:

One could wish that the user interface would become a bit more responsive. I usually experience a slight latency when switching between tabs and that can get a bit frustrating when a certain task requires a lot of back and forth between tabs.

Does less than we hoped

2 vor 2 Jahren

Vorteile:

Easily drop in Solidworks models and get a true sense of the layout vs. 2D AutoCAD. We purchased VR goggles so the user can be "dropped into" the cell to feel it out. We attended a training and it really helped us get up and going.

Nachteile:

Animating the cell takes more time invested than the reward reaped from seeing it animated. The data we need is better gathered from a 2D simulation vs. a 3D so that it is more accurate/exact. Also the female operator wears heels, has an inch of midriff showing, and a large chest - it is weird.

Education and industry use

4 letzten Monat Neu

Vorteile:

The software has the best 3D user interface and exellent tools for programing of production logic.

Nachteile:

Since it is 3D can run slow in you progra it to calculate different what-if scenarios.

Long-time user review

4 letzten Monat Neu

Kommentare: We've been using Visual Components products for over a decade and have been very satisfied with the software. We are using the software in research and development, education and training, and business cases with companies. Due to its multipurpose nature, we are continuously facing new possibilities where we can use Visual Components and achieve more sophisticated solutions.

Vorteile:

The overall flexibility and customizing possibilities make the software very powerful for various domains. High-level visual representation capabilities extend the software use range also to marketing and selling functions.

Nachteile:

Visual Components doesn't provide a standalone simulation model player. Therefore, if one wants to share a simulation model with a customer, and the customer needs to play simulation dynamically and change the parameters of the model, then the customer needs to purchase a license for the software. Only recorded 3D animations can be shared and played without additional costs.

One of the best Virtual Engineering tools

5 letzten Monat Neu

Vorteile:

Good graphics capabilities, ease of use, huge components library

Nachteile:

Manual operations (humans) can be improved: e.g. timings studies, ergonomics, etc. Moret PLC drivers/communication protocols can be added. DES features can be improved

Excellent tool for 3D simulation

5 letzten Monat Neu

Kommentare: We have succesfully used visual components on multiple occasions to simulate automated solutions to establish feasibility and provide a business case for a solution for our clients

Vorteile:

The range of features that can be added in to enable an automated solution to be presented to the client and modelled for deployment

Nachteile:

Some suppliers are missing or take a while to get new products on the package

Visual Components a great piece of software for evaluating factory improvements.

Kommentare: Was good to know about the software, but we really needed more specialist knowledge to make the most out of the investment.

Vorteile:

Great integration with 3D modeling software and overall easy to use to get up and running.

Nachteile:

To really get the most out of this software you really need to be using it every day as the number of variables and options are almost endless!
