Important first: Simulation software integrates with Google 3D Warehouse; offers free 3D objects


Simio LLC says it is the first vendor to integrate simulation software with Google 3D Warehouse , an online, searchable repository of 3D objects. The integration means Simio computer simulation users can download hundreds of thousands of Google 3D Warehouse modeling components without cost, and use those components to realistically model system components.
“Simio extends the benefit of computer simulation for decision-making beyond specialists,” says


Dennis Pegden, founder and CEO of Simio LLC. “The instant that a 3D component is downloaded from Google’s 3D Warehouse into Simio simulation software, it can be integrated into an intelligent object and modified to fit the specific needs of an application.”
Simio users also benefit from the ability to create their own 3D modeling components without writing code, thereby saving time and extending the benefits beyond specialists.
“With Simio, users now have two fast, easy options for realistic modeling: They can use Google Warehouse, or easily create their own objects. Simulation users no longer have to settle for objects that don’t represent system components, nor do they require the expertise and time to write code,” Pegden adds.
In addition, users save time because the 3D objects can be downloaded without ever leaving Simio software.
Simio aims to make simulation simpler and more accurate, so that simulation software can reach its potential to help businesses make more informed decisions.
Another unique feature of Simio is users can share pre-built 3D objects. Simio users also can access a public archive to download, modify and share Objects and Libraries with other users.
