Frequently asked questions

General

Link to Demo download

The model library comprises only 10% of the 3D models of the full version; printing, saving, and generation of modules are not possible. Import via Object Manager is limited; export of 3D layouts is not possible.

The user interface of the software is also provided in English. To switch the language, go to “Settings” in the start screen. The software is installed in both languages; it is not possible to download other languages separately. 

Dynamic simulation in the classical sense is not possible. No times are considered by the software. Calculation, representation and optimization of the material flow are possible on the basis of a fixed period and thus constitute an uncomplicated database.

Yes, it is; activate an evaluation function (logistics evaluation, layout optimization, DI diagram).

Using equipment, buildings, etc. from other systems

ObjectManager: STL, DAE, 3DS, WRL, STP, IGS, DXF, DWG, OBJ, IFC 

Background images: DWG, DXF 

Quantity structures: XLSX 

This is only possible for the visibility of layers in CAD background objects, as the initial data do not always represent the same structure. Individual objects or areas within a CAD cannot be moved. If you want to access specific areas or objects within a CAD, they must be segregated beforehand and made available separately, e.g. via import into your model library.  

Including the current 2018 format, the following file formats can be imported.

Link to formats

IFC, DWG or DXF are frequently used formats.

This question is difficult to answer precisely because it depends on the existing data. Ideally, you can start working productively after an hour.

You can only import IFC files into your library. As far as the BIM is concerned, it is rather a workflow to be established than a tool.

Equipment library

The library comprises approx. 1,500 highly optimized models. 

No. The layout and library data lie exclusively on your systems and in your responsibility. Create backups where necessary since we do not manage and back up your models.  

Using layouts in other systems

Layouts created by way of visTABLE®touch are always suitable for use in a VR environment. An easy-to-use possibility is already provided by the 3D view. For a complete immersion, simply save the complete scene in 3D view and open it in a VR viewer of your choice matching your VR system.

Use the 3D view to export the scene. The result can be opened by way of the 3D Viewer of Windows, for example. Unpack the resulting ZIP archive and open the contained OBJ file.

Use the 3D view export function. 

Yes. You can print the complete layout or also sections to PDF. You can select an appropriate scale and also specify a labeling field.
