Custom products in simulation
The visual impression of a simulation can be improved by using custom products in the Feeder component. In addition to the basic shapes collection it's possible to import and use own CAD models. Bottle is the default shape, with a set of paramet...
 How to use sender/receiver for merging or diverting
DistributeMode ‚Äč There are three different options how to distribute components via a sender component, changed in the  DistributeMode  property DistributeEvenly – All components are distributed evenly a...
How to use the turner
The turner is a component usable for visualization purposes when running a simulation. It gives the user a possibility to rotate or translate products. Note: It does not change the origin of the component, only creating an offset. This...
Simulation components (Feeder, Changer & InitializationPoint)
This article describes the simulation components Feeder, Changer and  InitializationPoint  focusing on some simple examples. The User documentation (manual) is also covering this area.  These three components can be used to...
Use distributions for the feeder
It is possible to distribute products from the Feeder using probability distributions.  If Feeding Interval is set to Distribution a number of different options are displayed.  In the parameter Distribution  it ...
X85 conveyor with reversed direction
When a conveyor is partly mounted in a machine, it may be a problem to fit the the drive unit. One solution is to use an intermediate drive, another solution is a reversed conveyor with a guided chain drive unit. A reversed conveyor can be created i...
