    Simio Drawing Exchange - Visio

    Hi Jeff. I'm looking at it. I'll try and split it into smaller files. Give me a day. Thanks... - dan
  2. SimioVisio.mp4 Simio is developing a common exchange mechanism for importing drawings from Visio and other apps. This Topic describes how drawings are imported from Visio (.VSDX files; Visio 2013 or later). This is a run-time release (with code to soon follow). It has a *lot* of bug fixes, plus the addition of a preview tab in the Visio2018 Add-In. The included video has been updated along with the addition of a source-code package. Contained are: 1. A document that describes the procedure and the architecture. 2. A simple example which includes an Add-In (VisioAddIn2018) that imports Visio files (package-runtime.zip) 3. Stencils to use for creating Visio documents for importing to a Simio Facility view. 4. All Source code (package-code.zip) 5. Short video on how to edit Visio stencils package-runtime.zip package-code.zip VisioStencils.mp4
  3. Recently we were asked how Simio might interact with GIS Data. Attached is a PDF document explaining how Simio can interact with GIS Service Providers, plus a demonstration Add-In (GisAddIn) that constructs Simio nodes and paths using GIS data obtained from Microsoft's Bing Maps service. I will eventually get around to adding Google and ArcGIS. There is also the Simio project file that this Add-In 'built'. In a nutshell. The Add-In pops up a form where you can enter a start and end destination, and then Requests a road route between those destinations. Once the Response data is received and processed, the appropriate Simio objects are constructed. Note: To get this to work, you'll need a Bing Maps Key. These are free and the instructions on how to get one is in the PDF Document GisAddInPackage.zip
