Just for clarification about the different software products:
3D navigation integrated in Control plus HMI
Error localization by highlighting the error source in the 3D model (both Control plus and non-Control plus)
Virtual Assist Studio is used to configure which error source is located where in the 3D model
Simulation feature in Control plus:
Simulation peripherals for Control plus allow to run a PLC project without the fieldbus and devices
Simulation of the movements can be performed inside the PLC or using an external simulation tool
The external simulation tool sets Digital Inputs and other PLC variables belonging to the simulation peripherals
Currently, we are offering the creation of a 3D simulation for a specific project as a service. We need the 3D CAD model of the station to do this.
In future, 3D Simulation Studio will allow you to do this yourself. The tool will require an additional license.
In 3D Simulation Studio, you can select the fixed and the moving parts for each moving device and configure the movement details.
Many variables will be configured automatically as 3D Simulation Studio imports a configuration file generated by Control plus Studio.
Yes, there are some similarities between Virtual Assist Studio and 3D Simulation Studio: In both tools, you link 3D objects of the CAD model to Control plus objects. But Virtual Assist Studio does not handle any movements, so it has no simulation capabilities. The 3D model displayed by Virtual Assist is static.
