Default Where can I find a FlexSim tractor trailer

Ladies and Gentlemen,
I have come across a number of screenshots (e.g this one: http://elianealhadeff.blogspot.co.nz...izing-any.html) of simulations featuring a tractor-trailer. Judging from a FlexSim logo on the side it was either a part of older FlexSim release or available somewhere for download. (Or it is included in the current release and I cannot find it). Could somebody possibly shed some light as to whether this object is available for downloading and use and if yes, how do I get ahold of it.
Thank you!
Vadim

Vadim,

you are right, the truck was part of an older release, but it is just a 3D model not an object. Attached is the shape.
If you are just looking for a truck you can also highjack the 3D shape from the Fluid Terminator object in FlexSim's current Fluid Library...or just steal it from Google's 3D Warehouse

Best wishes

Ralf,
I love this truck. It is very lightweight compared to anything I could find in Google 3D warehouse and it follows FlexSim style guide so looks nice combined with the rest of the model.
The problem right now is that it cannot find some of the skins, even though the files are there (see screenshot). What am I doing wrong?
