This is a pre-release (Beta) version of a library that we expect will become a formal part of Simio.

The Extras Library contains:
--a simplified and easier to use version of our Cranes library
--an Elevator object for modeling a multi-floor single elevator or bank of elevators.
--Lift Truck with a lifting mechanism that travels to a specified height
--Rack object to store entities at customizable heights
--Multi-axis Robot object that picks and places with automatic path calculation

The documentation and SimBits are only preliminary, but we hope it is enough so you can discover how it works.

{Library updated Nov 16, 2017 for Simio 9.164. This contains significant internal enhancements to Cranes and Elevators. }

We are anxious to hear your feedback on using the Extras library.

Hi, Dave,
I tried to create my own object composite, but if I use the entity reference with AutoCreate inside my LiftTruck, the Lifting device referenced cannot be moved in External View. Do you have any idea of how to solve this?
Thanks
