    Design, Simulate, and Optimize Your Factory Layout Directly in AutoCAD®

    Quickly build a spatially accurate layout and process simulation model simultaneously all within AutoCAD, using Factory Design Assets and the ProModel AutoCAD Add-in. Simulate the scaled model directly in AutoCAD with the click of a button. View results in the Output Viewer and easily make, test and validate layout and process changes in AutoCAD. Finalize the model, then view it in 3D with Inventor® and ProModel 3D Animator.

    1

    Create an AutoCAD layout using Factory Assets. Then build the process model using flows and other features from the ProModel Ribbon on the AutoCAD menu.

    2 Press "Simulate" and watch your model run with animation in AutoCAD.

    3

    View dynamic model output metrics and run "What-If" scenarios. Compare and contrast your "What-If" scenarios in automatically generated reports that display the KPI's that define an optimized system.

    4

    From the process optimization, make any required changes in AutoCAD, then simulate again to confirm the improved results.

    5

    Open the final model in Inventor and ProModel 3D Animator to view the layout and model in 3D.

    What's New

     

     

    ProModel AutoCAD® Edition - July 2021


     

    This new AutoCAD plug in, requires its own subscription license.

    ProModel AutoCAD Edition now allows the user to build and simulate directly in AutoCAD Architecture or AutoCAD Mechanical 2019 or newer. Additional value can be gained by using Autodesk Product Design and Manufacturing Collection (PDMC) or Autodesk Factory Design Utilities (FDU), but they are not required.

    • Logic is now accessible within flows. Both Processing and Routing.



    • Model Elements added to provide more granularity within the model environment.
      • Variables - Can be visibly added to layout and used anywhere in processing and routing as well as logic.
      • Attributes - Can be used anywhere in processing and routing as well as logic.
      • Macros - Can be used anywhere in processing and routing as well as in logic and scenario parameters.





    • Find and replace.
    • Added Send route capability - allow Entities to be sent to destinations based on logic conditions.
    • Added Join route capability - allow Entities to join together within the simulation.



    • Right click menu options for objects within the viewport. Allowing the user to navigate to where the model element is located within the Simulation Browser, or Simulation Properties.



    • German, Portuguese, and Spanish localization improvements
    • Improvements with validation
    • Light and Dark theme improvements
    • Conveyor Improvements
    • Arrival Improvements
    • Enhancements to how ProModel handles the AutoCAD view port
    • Improvements in undo/redo
    • Improvements to error catching

    ProModel AutoCAD Edition - Evaluation Version available on the Autodesk App Store

    • A subscription to a lite version is available on the Autodesk App store for evaluation purposes. At this time, it’s free for 6 months. There is no obligation to continue the subscription or purchase the full version. It has limitations to features like Resources, Scenarios and Opening the model In ProModel.  Features are grayed out or have an indicator that the feature is only available in the full purchased version.



    The full version can be purchased as a subscription directly from our online store from within the ProModel AutoCAD Edition - Evaluation Version.

      ProModel AutoCAD® Edition - May 2021

    ProModel AutoCAD Edition now allows the user to build and simulate directly in AutoCAD Architecture or AutoCAD Mechanical 2019 or newer. Additional value can be gained by using Autodesk Product Design and Manufacturing Collection (PDMC) or Autodesk Factory Design Utilities (FDU), but they are not required.

    ProModel AutoCAD Edition allows the user to build directly within AutoCAD:

      • Locations
      • Conveyors
      • Process Flows
      • Resource
      • Path Networks
      • Build Scenarios
      • Simulation Options
      • Push the model to ProModel for more advanced modeling capabilities

    Once your model is built you can simulate directly within the AutoCAD environment.

    System Requirements



    In order to use ProModel AutoCAD Edition, you must have access to the 2019 or newer versions of AutoCAD Architecture, AutoCAD MEP, or AutoCAD Mechanical . Users can take advantage of AutoCAD blocks to represent stations or operations in the layout. The Factory Design Utility that is included with the Autodesk Product Design and Manufacturing Collection provides even more productivity and accuracy - leveraging a library of over 2000 standard catalog facilities objects (assets) to speed layout tasks and allowing 3D representations of your layout to be created automatically.  This allows even more spatially accurate layouts and clearer communication of design intent. They can be evaluated for free and purchased as part of Autodesk's Product Design and Manufacturing Collection. Click here to access these products.
