Yes, perhaps :-)
Thanks for the feedback. If you do get into working with the assets we've provided, please let us know what other comments you have.
This is a great tool and would be a huge help to me. I downloaded the add-on but I am missing the transport asset which I really need. Is there a way to get this?
I've been playing around with Factory Modz and must say I really like it!! 2 questions:1. How to use custom parts rather then boxes as feed for the generator object? 2. How to define a forklift truck has to pickup a pallet when object capacitiy is reached and ride it to a storage rack. Mine only pick one box at a time.
For question1: you can place the custom asset and fill the name of asset in FM_SHAPE properties of Generator.Please refer to the snapshot attached.
For question2:Currently it is not supported to pick one pallet at once by forklift truck.
I am trying to set up a representation of what we are currently doing. I am unable to figure out how the asset "Processor" works. Also, it would be incredibly helpful in the future if the generator made product based on whether a rack or pallet had a certain number of product on it. This would allow us to simulate a pull system for product movement instead of a push system like you have it set now.
Also, for shops like ours that have variations in products if we could assign properties to the products that would vary like the color does that would be great. This would allow us to simulate our shop operations where one product might be larger and take longer to go through each process while the next might take less time and then we can determine how our process will handle those situations. Just some thoughts.
If anyone could please explain what the processor does and how to use it I would appreciate it. Thanks!
That is good suggestion.
Regarding to the "processor", that need to invoke "Sink" asset and "Processor" asset to simulate the process workflow. Please refer to the video attached.
Thanks! One last question: Is it possible to have a person or fork lift take an object from a pallet to a conveyor?
Hi Andreas -
At this point in time, we don't have any plans to publish an update that will be compatible with the localized versions of the Suite.
