VIRTUAL COMMISSIONING AND DIGITAL TWIN IN THE MACHINERY INDUSTRY

Game4Automation is a free development framework for the visualization and virtual commissioning of automated systems. Game4automation is based on Unity, a popular commercial game development environment that includes support for VR (virtual reality) and AR (augmented reality).

The open source Game4automation platform can be acquired from the Unity Asset Store and provides all necessary components to power up a digital twin with Unity. The platform includes CAD interfaces (CAD-Live-Link), drives, sensors and interfaces for industrial automation systems.

The digital twin integrates as a Unity module in your own Windows, iOS or Android applications - FOR FREE

Increase your odds and play for free!

USE CASES

High end 3D visualization of automation solutions
Cooperative engineering, virtual reality and augmented reality.

Applying the 3D models to virtual commissioning and control testing

3D HMI and integration of the digital twin into your own solution.

PLAYFULL PERFORMANCE

With the Unity Game Engine, Game4automation offers unrivalled performance. Unity has already introduced modules that are only now in development for conventional engineering solutions.  The combination of the software’s physical simulation with kinematic models, gives the environment a tremendous ability to simulate almost an unlimited amount of moving objects. 

Boring visualization in CAD is in the past. Realistic shadows, surfaces, light reflections and textures can now be displayed - in real time.

FEATURES

CAD Interfaces
Live-Link for JT and Solidworks

Interfaces based on PixYZ to Solidworks, Solidedge, NX, JT, Parasolid, Catia, ProE-Creo, Autocad
Mechatronic Components
Components for drives, gears, sensors, gripping, cylinders, buttons, lamps, signals and more.
Automation Interfaces
Simit (Profibus, Profinet), PLCSimAdvance, S7-300 and S7-1500 (TCP-IP)
Free Deployment
Free distribution of your digital twin on Android, IOs, Windows devices and on the Web (Standard Unity functions).

CAD PLAYS

Game4automation Professional includes CAD Link which allows to import the 3MF file format which a lot of CAD Systems can export. The hierarchy shows which data has been changed by the mechanical designer. The 3D model in Unity updates automatically to changes in the mechanical design overwriting the additions in Unity.

With parts4cad you get access to millions of standard industrial components. parts4cad can be downloaded for free.

Addtional CAD formats can be imported by the use of PIXYZ like for example JT, AutoCAD 3D, Catia, NX, Solidworks, Solidedge, CreoPro / E.  PiXYZ is not included in Game4automation and must be purchased separately.

GAME WITH OPEN CARDS

Game4automation includes interfaces to Simit, PLCSim Advanced and over TCP-IP to Siemens hardware such as. S7-300, S7-1500, Sinumerik and Simotion.

The behavioral model can be developed either in Simit or directly in Game4Automation based on templates in C #.

If required, the Profibus and Profinet fieldbus systems can be connected directly via Simit with the export of the hardware configuration from Step7 or TIA Portal.

AUTOMATION INTERFACES

Game4automation includes interfaces to Simit, PLCSim Advanced and over TCP-IP to Siemens hardware such as. S7-300, S7-1500, Sinumerik and Simotion.

Countless other controllers can be connected thanks to Industry 4.0’s OPC UA protocol

The behavioral model can be developed either in Simit or directly in Game4Automation based on templates in C #.

If required, the fieldbus systems Profibus and Profinet can be connected directly via Simit via the export of the hardware configuration from Step7 or TIA Portal.

VR AND AR READY

As Game4Automation is based on Unity, it delivers the best VR and AR experience. The digital twin can be experienced with devices such as HTC VIVE, OCULUS RIFT or the new Microsoft Hololens 2. Dive into your digital twin!

OBJECTIVES AND SUPPORT

Game4Automation is a brand of in2Sight GmbH. With 18 years of experience in creating applications and distributing conventional simulation and commissioning software, it became evident that the game has to be redefined to meet today’s requirements. Unity gaming technology outperforms and supercedes commercial solutions from well-known providers in the PLM and Digital Factory environment in terms of performance, openness and user-friendliness.

It is mandatory to adapt to the new trends and to make new technologies manageable for mechanical design and industrial automation users, and we are committed to a new open and service-focused approach without innovation-inhibiting and costly sales structures.

Game4Automation is perfect for tech savvy users who want more than off-the-shelf "out-of-the-box" software.
