Start as a engineering office with game4automation.

conwex 10 months ago in General Questions updated by Support 10 months ago 2

Hello all,

we are a modern and new design office near Mundelsheim, Ludwigsburg


We want to start with game4atuomation from February and I have a few questions about it.

Do we need from Unity only the basic version for ca.369 € per year?

Is there already a synchronization for Inventor?

Is there a module for the Raspberry Pi for programming?

Details what we want to do:

We offer our customers so-called Engineering Starter Kits and want to sell first designs for automation projects. In this first phase we do not create any programming or simulations but we want to create a video/animation of the design with Playmaker. Programming and simulation will be added in the next phase. Many of our customers then use these videos for sales and meetings and to make decisions. It's important that we have robots and conveyors available or that we can import them easily. Later in the project we are using the other function too.

Would you say all this would fit well with Game4Automation?

Details on www.conwex.de

Thanks a lot

Greetings

Jan

Good morning,

I think this fits well vor Game4Automation. What do you mean with basic (369€) per year?

You need Unity Professional (about 150€ a month) and Game4Automation Professional (700€ for one license). You can import Inventor CAD data by exporting and importing them via STEP data format.

For the Rasperry PI what kind of a module are you looking for. We have implemented several industrial communication protocolls and if RasperrryPI is talking one of these protocolls communication with Game4Automation Signals would be also. Our source code is open so you could also implement your own custom interface to a rasperry pi.

You can also check our new FAQ if you have more questions:
