How to improve Virtual Machine processing speed
Before importing machine solid components as Virtual Machine objects (either in the Quest Developer, or at run-time in Gener or CeRun), use your CAM system to edit the component and remove unnecessary features in the body.
For example, all of the holes and key ways of the pallet shown below at left can be removed (as shown at right), without compromising the accuracy of simulation. The simplified object has far fewer faces, thereby enabling Virtual Machine simulation to be faster.
Benefit to User
Simplifying components before using them in VM will speed simulation and reduce model development time.
