  1. Good day, We changed the file element to accept a property name, this allows the user to write files from several different sub models at the same time, or write out a different name based on some criteria. The file name is evaluate when the run is initialized. Use the CustomFile, CustomWrite and CustomRead. Code is not added as it is mostly the same as the normal read and write. Regards, SET Team CustomTextFileReadWrite.zip
  2. Hi Johan, There is: DateTime.ToString(TimeNow, "HH:mm yyyy/MM/dd") see NET Standard Date and Time Format Strings https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/0c899ak8(v=vs.110).aspx Or Search Datetime in the help file for more info. Regards, Willem
  3. Hi, Switch to 3D mode by pressing 3, and the hold shift to move objects up and down.
  4. Try the following: Specify the instance of the work, if you have only one: WrkA.DirectDistanceTo.Object(WrkB): {DirectDistanceTo.Object(WrkB[1])} Reference the model: WrkA.DirectDistanceTo.Object(TransferNode1): {DirectDistanceTo.Object(Model.TransferNode1)} Regards, Willem

    Save Step

    Hi, This might be handy to ensure you save frequently. We place the step on run initialized and it automatically saves the model (given the model is selected). See attached. Copy the extracted "SaveStep.dll" into "C:\Users\\Documents\SimioUserExtensions". You might need to add the SimioUserExtensions folder under MyDocuments (C:\Users\\Documents) if it does not already exist. Regards, SET Team SaveStep.rar

    AutoCAD file

    Hi, Yes, but you can assign multiple simbols to a object... So you are still capable of doing your animation. Just note that the size will remain the same therefore you have to change the size when changing the symbol. Refer to the simio reference guide, search for symbols. This should help you to implement the symbol change... Regards, Willem
  7. Hi, In the on-failed event of the server, Search the contents of the processing queue, in the found step place a release step in order to release the applicable server. Directly after that place a destroy step to delete the entity, otherwise you can transfer it back to the start. Hope this helps...
  8. Hi, Not sure where you found the property but you can use the split allocation rule. Select a rule that you want and make your link weights equal to a variable weight and you can do basically anything. Hope this helps.

    Hi, Math.Remainder(ModelEntity.ProcessingTime, 3) = 0 Additionally you should just check if it is larger than 0. Unless you assigned a ProcessingTime variable or property to your ModelEntity it will not work. Usually the processing time is linked to a Server. Regards, Willem
  10. Hi, Create a sub-classed object with the properties fixed as you would like them. This would allow you to simply place the object and all the relevant properties will be fixed. You can even safe your object to a library and reuse it... Otherwise use the properties view to batch edit objects... Hope this helps.
  11. Hi, The conversion of Distributions to the correct Simio format has been an issue for me for a while, thus I created this macro to convert from @Risk distributions to simio format distributions. I hope that more will share there conversion methods from other software. Regards, Willem DistributionsSimioTo@Risk.xlsm

    Flow Server

    Hi Mark, The quickest fix is just to split into (onto) flow connectors and then add another FlowNode then add the conveyor. Hope this solves your problem.
  13. Good day, I have decided to post a flow sever library in the hope to get such an object added into the flow library. We have been using this flow server to model crusher and other pieces of equipment.The server includes failures, schedules and resource states. Please comment and/or Improve the flow server. Attached is a simple demo and a library to import. FlowServerLibrary.spfx FlowServerDemo.spfx
  14. Not sure about the last 2 questions, but you have to copy the .dll files into the "C:\Users\\Documents\SimioUserExtensions" on you computer for the add-ins to appear in Simio. Also be sure to close and reopen Simio. Ps. Simio is not a spelling mistake Simio Forum Spell Checker!
  15. Hi, This might help, to import and export properties... http://www.simio.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=36&t=1389&hilit=Export+Import+Model
