FlexSim 2021 Update 1 also brings visual improvements. Indirect lighting in RTX Mode has been improved so you don’t have to do your own lighting to cast nice-looking soft shadows. We’ve also added support for reflections to add another realistic visual element to your FlexSim model.
There are also new visualizations in and around conveyors. We’ve added 6 default bottle shapes you can use to improve the visuals at various stages of a bottling line. Simply add one or more of these shapes to the FlowItem Bin, and then use the new “Bottle Shapes by Label” picklist option in the Mass Flow Units properties to show these shapes on your Mass Flow Conveyor. We’ve also added the option to change the roller color in Conveyor Visualizations.
And that’s just the start. This version also includes a new Travel Distance chart template, improvements to Time Tables and Property Tables, performance improvements, and much more. Check the description for a link to the release announcement for more details on what’s inside.
Thanks for watching, and we hope you enjoy FlexSim 2021 Update 1.
