Manuel,

Do you want the objects in Flexsim only look different or do also behave different?

Hello Steven,

I only want to change the look of the objects ...for example a transporter (forklift) should look like a automated guided vehicle.


I hope you can help me.


kind regards

Manuel

Manuel,

Go to the properties of an object, to the visual page and at the 3d shape edit field select a different 3D object. This can be in the formats: vrml1, 3ds, stl or dxf

On the website in the download section of the forum you can find a lot of files and also on the internet.

Further if you want to have an agv, better use the operator then the forklift truck because the operator doesn't have any forks drawn.

Steven

Manuel,

Check out AC3D. It has a special vrml1 export option for Flexsim. Is not expensive and can do an awful lot.

Manuel,

dxf files are usually only used as background drawings. To find more information look at this post: http://www.flexsim.com/community/for...ighlight=scale

So for objects I would use the vrml1 (.wrl files) and if you search in this forum I'm pretty sure you can find some tips. The most important is to scale it back to 1 by 1 by 1 in the tool you created in and set it at 0.5, 0.5 , 0.5 before importing. Otherwise look at the offset parameters.

Steven
