Thanks for joining the WNI2020 Training Event

We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!

You've had time to look around the new features in V2020, and this was your opportunity to learn how to get the best out of them. We held a four-hour online training day comprising four main subjects which brought together most of the new and improved features listed in What's New in 2020. We added a host of valuable new features to the 2020 release including additional Aspects for CAD Is The Model (CITM), more integrated virtual robot controllers, and a more powerful Tag Browser, to name but a few.  

We carried out step by step tutorials followed by live Q&A sessions - with your questions answered by the experts on the day. Since the release last year we've been working hard creating tutorials to guide you through the workings of these new features. Many of you took the opportunity to unlock the value they represent and learned how to take advantage of the improved feature set. 


Wednesday March 31, 8am-12pm EST

  • - CITM - Took a closer look at the new Sketch Aspects and Path Followers
  • - Robots - Connected to FANUC RoboGuide and ABB RobotStudio for realistic moves or drive moves using our new controller
  • - Controls Testing - Checked out the new drives, understood the improved Tag Browser and learned what the rewindable RAW3D is all about
  • - Bring It Together - This demonstration model used many new catalogs items to illustrate how to unite key pieces of your model to generate useful results, fast!
  • - Q&A between each section to answer your questions
  • - Bonus Pack of extra content and links to recordings of the training 

We know you had plenty of questions at the end of each of the four main sessions, so we factored in time to answer as many as we can. We followed up the day with a document containing full answers to all questions, including those sent in before the event.

We listened to your comments at the User Group Meeting last year so we know you got great value from the Bonus Pack of video tutorials we included, so we're did that again this time. The tutorials lead you step by step through the use of the feature - follow along; stop, rewind, watch again and learn how to put all these great developments to use. 

We created a Bonus Pack of all new tutorials covering many of the 2020 features which we made available to attendees following the event.

Emulate3D 2020 Virtual User Group Meeting

Thanks for coming, and see you again next year!

Training and UGM - September 15/16/17 
- Improve your Skills with Emulate3D Training
- Be Among the First to Experience Cloud-Based Emulate3D
- Learn from Presentations by Experienced and New Users
- Discover New Features and Developments
- Enjoy Relaxed Q&A and Informal Entertainment in AltspaceVR

The Emulate3D 2020 Virtual User Group Meeting will be your opportunity to learn how the Emulate3D product range is used by a wide range of companies across the world, and what's being developed now to make your job easier and safer. 

The event is designed to be a great introduction to those wanting to know more about how Digital Twins, virtual controls testing, and industrial product flow simulation are profitably used in industry today, as well as a valuable resource for existing users of all levels. 

Whether you are currently a user or not, the UGM has much to offer you and will feature presentations given by industry-leading companies including Vanderlande, Infinity Machine, Premier Tech, UMD, Haskell, The Dennis Group, and Automation Intelligence. It will provide valuable insight into what's coming in demonstration, simulation, and controls testing from some of the key Emulate3D architects and developers. 

We'll be featuring recent developments in the Independent Cart Technology catalog, integration with robot controllers such as FANUC Roboguide, CITM advances, and what can be achieved with Ansys integration, to mention just a few. 

If you want to discuss the real meaning of a Dynamic Digital Twin in the context of manufacturing and fulfilment centers or machines, or you need to know more about how the Industrial Internet of Things might benefit your facility, then this is your opportunity.

This is another big year for Virtual Reality as it applies to safe, flexible, and cost-effective remote immersive solution demonstrations and operator training, which crucially minimises the time you need to spend onsite. Emulate3D is an industry leader in the field, and we can give you the facts to help your decision making. Attend the UGM and discuss how this technology could benefit your company.

We'll be carrying out our pre-UGM training again this year, aimed at all users from keen beginners to experienced professionals. This year's event breaks new ground by providing you with the opportunity to access Emulate3D and Rockwell Automation's upcoming control emulator in the cloud. 

If you are a user of Rockwell Automation control systems, this event will provide a fascinating glimpse into our upcoming new technology. Attendees not connected to the cloud-based experience can also follow along with the majority of the training on their own license until connection to the virtual controller is required. 

Designed to provide insight into the possibilities of the latest release of the products, the sessions also include worked examples of how to implement the various features at all levels. 

Access to the cloud-based experience is limited, so register and check the box indicating your interest to reserve your place now!

What's New About The 2020 Virtual User Group Meeting?

We'll be running 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. 

We'll also be following the formal sessions with casual discussions and entertainment in the AltspaceVR 3D environment. You don't need a VR headset and controllers to participate as you can move around the environment easily with a mouse, but if you have them, you'll want to use them.

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. 

How Do I Present At The 2020 Virtual User Group Meeting?

Emulate3D User Group Meetings are a great place to demonstrate what your company is doing with Emulate3D technology. Every year attendees see great examples of how all kinds of companies are using it to do cost-effective and interesting automation projects. It's never been easier to participate as a presenter and we'll even waive the registration fee if your presentation is accepted!
Contact us now to find out more.  

All of the 2020 Virtual User Group content will remain available to registered attendees for several months following the event.  

Pre-UGM Training Workshop

Here's how we used to do it.

As in previous years, the first day will be training on a broad range of key parts of the product to keep your technical skills sharp in several high-value and interactive sessions run by our experienced trainers.

The workshop sessions will focus on developing skills to get the most out of the new features in the 2019 release as well as providing an opportunity to work with Emulate3D in the cloud. The final part of the training for attendees on the cloud will demonstrate connection to the upcoming Rockwell Automation virtual controller.

Training Workshop includes:

  • * Cloud-based use of Emulate3D for many attendees
  • * Importing and Marking Up CAD within Emulate3D Using Aspects
  • * Defining and Controlling Complex Physical Mechanisms
  • * Applying Different Forms of Control Logic, Including Custom Aspects
  • * Creating the Right Type of Control for the Job
  • * Making the Most of Catalogs such as Transfers, Vehicles, Storage, and Processing

If you'd like training at any level, from refresher to advanced, in the use of any Emulate3D products, contact us now.
