A brief summary with regards to the new updates that have been made in the eighth version of SimLab Composer:

-For More tutorials and information you can visit VR User page-



The following is a brief summary of the new update and changes that have been made in version 7.2 of SimLab Composer:


  • Auto Alignment : Which is a new Alignment mode in SimLab Composer that makes building a 3D scense very fast, and a more fun task.
