Sim3D Professional - A Way to Convince Them The System Integration will Work
Simulation is a powerful tool used to support decisions and provide stakeholders with that warm comfort feeling that the solution proposed, is not the next instalment of a Harry Potter book (fiction) but a realistic and viable proposition. This translates into requirement for a software that enables the desired As-Is state to be acceptably reproduced and the To-Be state put through its paces in order to receive that rewarding Yes from the stakeholders.
Simulation is of course not without its challenge, especially when it comes to working in environments of change, internal politics, deadlines and this before you have gained an understanding of the system under study, let alone decide how best to turn the concept into a model.
The final results from the study are like the hook on the back of the door, decisions are hung from them like coats. Simulation models that fail to provide timely acceptable answers, soon share a similar fate to that annoying coat hook that continually drops your coat on the floor i.e. the coat is placed elsewhere and the hook no longer used.
With the above challenges to meet and motivation levels high (as they are at the start of a project), we enter the environment of increasing time constraints and reduced budgets. The right investment in a simulation tool equates to having a fast learning curve and visuals that leaves little to the imagination and a reduced leap of faith in accepting the proposed solution on the part of the stakeholder.
Having laid out the expectations for our simulation engine, Sim3D does a great job of meeting these challenges when it comes to factory planning, evaluating manual operations on a line, equipment design and general system integration. I find it is at its best in the environment where modelling in detail and eliminating those unwanted surprises is the order of business. It is by no means restricted to modelling those scenarios, but when it comes to simulating something different such as crane operations then scripting is required and that can add some upfront time.
The professional version I would say is more for someone else doing the leg work by building the objects and you dragging and dropping them in to build the system under study. Once you have built up a library of various objects then the task becomes more a stroll in the park.
Standard Library- The object orientated approach to modelling means dragging and dropping from the vast array of objects in its standard library with no coding required. Objects range from people, to baggage systems. Place a Load creator where you want to start and line runs on play.
Importing Files- Imported 3D CAD file sizes are significantly reduced. There is a vast selection of supported file formats to import from including point cloud.
Navigation- Interact simply using just the controls on the mouse.
Switch on and off layers, so only the areas you wish to focus on are visible. Eye catching for working on particular objects in fine detail or having the audience pay attention in class.
Apply physics, adjust coefficient of friction values to demonstrate loads interacting with other surfaces. Then interact by picking them up to clear blockages if they occur.
Data Tables- Link MS Worksheets to objects.
KPI- Use standard data collection objects from library.
Experiments- Directly add property to vary to experiment window from object. Use Analysis to create charts for showing results.
Animation support for exporting to standard formats e.g. MP4 but also animated PDF and VR. Alternatively view using Demo3D App on your smartphone. Render scene using opensource renderer and make photorealistic movies.
Support- Team are like having a Formula 1 pit crew in your email account.
WebStore contains tutorial videos with starting models and additional object libraries.
I should firstly point out that my review is based on the 2015 version and not the current 2016 so some of these may already have been resolved, but as my use is based on the Professional 2015 version it will at least serve as a guide.
Importing Files- A couple of gripes here are:
1. Lack of support for actual Max file formats ' Workaround requires original file to be exported first as 3ds format in Max before importing it.
2. Occasionally files that were originally imported from another CAD package other than Inventor (which I use), ends up with duplicate parts of the object ' clean-up operation is then required to remove the duplicate items.
To be fair I believe the second gripe is more an Inventor issue than a Sim3D one, but make sure the file doesn't have duplicates.
Physics Based- As it stands now the physics is either on or off as a global selection. Not being able to switch physics off for certain objects rather than globally would enable areas that you are studying in detail to be visualised more effectively and the areas that are there for background framing could be ignored.
Experiment- Something I find disappointing is that once the column has been added to the Experiment window, the column heading is fixed and does not appear to dynamically update should the name of the corresponding object change.
Something I think would be useful here is an optimisation engine especially when there are a lot of parameters in the experiment that can be adjusted.

Great tool for emulation
We think Emulate3D is a tremendous tool for emulation and controls testing. We test and validate our PLC control programs before the machine is built by connecting the PLC I/O to virtual versions of our systems that we create in Emulate3D. The ability to build custom equipment from our CAD models gives us the flexibility to create a realistic model of any piece of equipment we may design. We have developed a catalog of custom equipment but importing CAD from SolidWorks and developing C# scripts to emulate realistic behavior in response to PLC signals. Emulate3D also allows us to reproduce and troubleshoot problems that happens on systems already installed. This is especially useful to debug intermittent problems.
More information on our experience with Emulate3D can be found here:
- Flexibilty we get to create any custom equipment we want,
- Ability to write C# code directly in VisualStudio,
- Ease of connection with a PLC,
- Amazing customer support, they are even open to develop custom components for us (virtual depth camera, for example)

Excellent Simulation Software to q
Kommentare: Provides us with a very powerful and advance simulation software which will be used to build large scale and complex simulation models for automated material handling system in future. As of now we have finished evaluation and intend to begin using this software for projects in near future.
Object oriented programming approach with ability to create component classes allows to quickly build models with previously developed objects.
Versatile programming capabilities with flexibility to write logic using Jscript, C sharp and built in Quicklogics.
Common environment for model development and runtime.
Superior 3D graphics, rendering capabilities.
Ability to develop physics based modeling allows to realistically model system functionalities.
Comprehensive import features to read/bring into simulation variety of CAD file formats.
Product support staff is fantastic and very helpful.
Product development team is very responsive to identify and release bug fix and updates.
Nachteile: As of 2016 version, there is little documentation available for detailed Help. Would be great if there is a "Getting started" documentation/handbook available to cover basics for methods, properties, and events to allow users to quickly learn programming in Sim3D. While there are a lot of example models available and very helpful, an organized and detailed help documentation would be more beneficial for beginners.

Nice bit of software
Vorteile: I really like its user interface. Super clean and not bloats at all. Did have some issues but a update fixed it
Nachteile: It was a like any new software, learning challenging was interesting but over all was good. I like it but kinda dislike it.

Our experience with the software has been top notched!
Kommentare: We have been able to conceptualize and test projects early in the design process. This allows us to demonstrate our proposed approach in the sales phase of the project
Vorteile: The simplicity of use while maintaining the power and flexibility of advanced simulation. The ability to advance simple models into elaborate simulations is critical .
Nachteile: There could be better examples and training on flow control. While the tutorials use this feature, they never speak directly to the why of some implementations.
