• Available in the Mechanical and Ultimate editions of SimLab Composer.
  • Developed for Engineers.
  • It’s represented as a workbench within SimLab Composer, which is accessible directly from the Workbenches Bar.
  • The Simulation Workbench is dedicated for executing physical and mechanical simulations within SimLab Composer application.

Simulation Preview

This video demonstrates an Interactive simulation showcase, created interactively, from SimLab Composer.

Simulation Workbench

Take your knowledge of Simulation to the next step by viewing the simulation tutorial.


Simulation Tutorial

Get to know the easiest way to simulate and the most straight-forward application for simulation.

Simulation with VR

This is a showcase of an advanced mechanical simulation run inside a VR environment, the simulation shows a backhoe driven by the Chrono dynamic physics engine, and run in virtual reality, simulation is created using SimLab Composer.


Interactive simulation can be run in SimLab VR viewer (using HTC vive, Oculus or on the Desktop)


>> Get in Simulation Fast with Various Ready-Made Models

The Models Library acts as a container for pre-installed simulation models that come with the Simulation Edition of SimLab Composer, distributed into three groups: Basic Physics Experiments, General, and Collision. As a start point, you can take a preview of what Simulation is capable of by start running the provided models.

>> Advanced Collision System

  • A powerful physics engine that allows complex Rigid-Body simulations along with advanced collision detection capabilities.

>> Helpful and Informative Post-Processing

  • For the purpose of simulation data analysis and post processing, Plotting Library is provided by the Simulation Workbench as a graphical technique for representing a simulation data set as a graph, showing the relationship between two or more variables.
  • Results can be transformed to animations, to be rendered as movies or exported.

  • Producing realistic motion.
  • It is introduced to help students of all disciplines of engineering that applies the principles of engineering, physics, design, manufacturing, and maintenance of mechanical systems, which involves the production and usage of mechanical power.
  • You can use SimLab Composer to model the dynamic behaviors of objects in 3-D space.

  • Prototypes testing and simulation by engineers.
  • Virtual applications for engineering students.
  • Educational (schools and universities).

  • Using the Simulation Workbench in SimLab Composer.
  • In SimLab Composer, every simulation case requires creating solids and Links (optional). A Link defines the relationship of two solids to each other. Consider these prerequisites when you start every simulation project.
