Visual Validation

Visual Validation can be accessed from the View tab, from the Verification group. Enabling this feature will allow you to quickly see the rules of your simulation objects on screen, reducing the need to open up each simulation object’s properties. Visual Validation only shows if simulation time is zero. You should use this to validate parts of your simulation match your model before running.

You can display multiple validations onscreen at once. Simply select which of the above you would like to be highlighted within your simulation, and SIMUL8 will automatically section the highlighted areas so you can see the overall picture.
