Check out the short 2 minute overview video of how you can gain immediate value and below that a 6 minute demo video with an actual throughput improvement use case.
Below are some of the latest new features:
Logic is now accessible within flows. Both Processing and Routing.
Model Elements added to provide more granularity within the model environment.
Variables – Can be visibly added to layout and used anywhere in processing and routing as well as logic.
Attributes – Can be used anywhere in processing and routing as well as logic.
Macros – Can be used anywhere in processing and routing as well as in logic and scenario parameters.
Find and replace.
Added Send route capability – allow Entities to be sent to destinations based on logic conditions.
Added Join route capability – allow Entities to join together within the simulation.
Right click menu options for objects within the viewport. Allowing the user to navigate to where the model element is located within the Simulation Browser, or Simulation Properties.
German, Portuguese, and Spanish localization improvements
Improvements with validation
Light and Dark theme improvements
Enhancements to how ProModel handles the AutoCAD view port
Improvements in undo/redo
Improvements to error catching
ProModel AutoCAD Edition – Evaluation Version available on the Autodesk App Store
A subscription to a lite version is available on the Autodesk App store for evaluation purposes. At this time, it’s free for 6 months. There is no obligation to continue the subscription or purchase the full version. It has limitations to features like Resources, Scenarios and Opening the model In ProModel. Features are grayed out or have an indicator that the feature is only available in the full purchased version.

“Leveraging predictive analytics, you can quickly simulate your factory model and get process improvement insights, all with the click of a button. This easy-to-use solution provides designers and engineers with little or no experience in process modeling the most affordable tools.”
We are pleased to announce the latest updates to the ProModel and MedModel Optimization Suites and Autodesk Editions.
Auto orientation for entities graphics while on conveyors. Entities by default now rotate based on the orientation of the conveyor settings widthwise (right side of the entity graphic) or lengthwise (top of the entity graphic).
Improved functionality for background color changes while panning during simulation
I am excited to announce the latest release of the ProModel Autodesk Edition. With this release you can build to-scale simulation models directly in AutoCAD. Start with a layout developed in AutoCAD utilizing the AutoCAD Factory Assets. Then quickly create process flows by defining the travel paths for parts with simple clicks, then add process times or any special routing rules, there is no programming required to do this.
Next open the scaled model in ProModel right from the AutoCAD ribbon, finish adding any other simulation properties if necessary, then simulate and optimize the process in ProModel. Finally, review your results in the Output Vewer, refine the layout as needed directly in AutoCAD and open up the revised model in ProModel. Once you have finished the design, you can then view it in 3D with Autodesk Inventor.
This short video provides a glimpse of the capabilities. Download your 30-day evaluation copy from the Autodesk App Store. View the rest of the release features at the ProModel Autodesk Edition Whats-New web page. Thanks for your continued business and support. We wish you and your family good health!

We are very excited to announce Process Simulator Autodesk® Edition and ProModel Autodesk® Edition. Each product integrates with Autodesk® AutoCAD® and Autodesk® Inventor® to provide you a more valuable manufacturing plant design and process improvement capability.
I have several years of experience in supply chain and logistics modeling helping clients who have large warehouses and distribution centers. These models are often very large (thousands or tens of thousands of locations), which can be very time consuming to model. I’ve found the old adage to be very true: “Necessity is the Mother of Invention”, so I developed a ProModel App that is used from within AutoCAD which enables us to quickly build the graphical portions of the model using OLE automation. This capability is also very useful when experimenting with several different layouts.
The types of Warehouse / DC modeling questions that can be answered include:
Slotting questions – where should my SKUs go?
Racking questions – which type of racking is best (flow rack, bin shelving, single pallet deep, double pallet deep, drive-in racking, etc.)?
How high should our racking go 5 levels, 7 levels, etc?
Which material handling devices are best – narrow aisle, forklifts, single/double/triple pallet jack, reach trucks, side loaders, clamp trucks, electric/propane/natural gas, etc.?
Staffing questions – how many of each type and when?
