SIMUL8 Tour - Scripting

SIMUL8 comes with our powerful scripting language Visual Logic, designed specifically for simulation to maximize execution speed and ease of use. Visual Logic ensures there is no process that can't be simulated with SIMUL8. If we haven't created the check box you need, Visual Logic lets you build in detailed logic to describe exactly how you want your simulation to behave.

This is just an overview of the Visual Logic basics. For more detailed information, visit our help files.
