Emulate3D 2021 Virtual User Group Meeting

We hope you enjoyed it - thanks for coming!
The Emulate3D 2021 Virtual User Group Meeting was November 17-19

What was the User Group Meeting about?

The Emulate3D 2021 Virtual User Group Meeting was designed for both new and experienced users. The event demonstrated recent and upcoming developments, including Emulate3D running on the cloud connected to the Rockwell Automation virtual controller, Echo, robot functionality upgrades, new device emulation, and much more.

Industry-leading companies walked through real-life examples of how they successfully implemented Emulate3D technology and benefit from using it for their automation projects. 

This year companies presenting their work included Dematic, Honeywell Intelligrated, Indicon, Fives Conveyors, Dorner, Automation Intelligence, Infinity MEC, The Dennis Group, and Haskell. 

The Emulate3D Training Day contains something for everyone and is designed to introduce users to new features and best practice. These tutorials will guide you step by step through the features, helping you learn how to put all these great developments to use. All content offered before and at the event will remain accessible to attendees for six months following the event.

Emulate3D 2021 Virtual User Group Meeting

We ran sessions online for four hours per day, with short breaks. If you are in the US, these sessions will begin at 8am EST, and if you are in Europe, they'll start at 1pm UK time. If you have questions during the presentations please ask them in chat, and we'll do our best to answer them live, or get back to you right after.

Being virtual doesn't mean we can't be more interactive, so the training day will feature live demonstrations influenced by your questions on chat. Not only will we reply to your requests, but we'll also be demonstrating how the product can do what you request, wherever possible.

We recognize that users are interested in different aspects of the technology, so we'll be running several tracks in parallel, with switchover times, so you can focus on those parts of the products you are particularly interested in.

Emulate3D technical presentations will be supplemented with further online presentations available exclusively to registered attendees after each session, and these will remain available to attendees for six months following the event.

    2021 User Presentations Included


    Cathryn Yong, presenter for Indicon, states, "We use Emulate3D to build Digital Twins of our equipment on the floor and commission it virtually. As the world of digital twins continues to grow, we are developing new components to fulfill the needs of our customers.

    Our presentation will highlight some of the more recent pieces that were built and show how Emulate3D helped us to assist the mechanical team with their final design and in virtual commissioning."


    Kraig Rotman, presenter for Dematic states  - The presentation will show:
  • Auto-generation of conveyor emulation models using engineering design data
  • Use of modular catalogs to eliminate custom scripting in models and enable auto-generation (including drives, estops, conveyor)
  • Using VisualAspects for extending visual design properties
  • Modeling emulation to reflect on-site comm-issioning workflow and tools

  • Showcasing: The Dematic MDR architecture

    The Dennis Group

    Mati Chessin, presenter, states, "A large parcel delivery company contracted us to simulate multiple large-scale distribution systems. A number of models were built to test the effectiveness of various designs before implementation in facilities across the country. Systems were tested that separately handled two different categories of packages, utilizing equipment that could merge, singulate, and sort. Systems were tested in both linear physics to assess shift-long utilization and volumetric physics to troubleshoot bottlenecks and jams. This presentation will be a retrospective of all the models built for this client, explaining the various designs, how they were simulated, the tools developed, and the results produced."
