Vortex Studio Essentials is free software that provides access to the core capabilities of the Vortex Studio simulation and visualisation platform. It includes Vortex Studio’s powerful desktop applications for simulation creation and distribution. It also includes Vortex Studio’s core multibody dynamics engine, as well as its vehicle and cable system simulation capabilities and integrated visualisation system.
A platform built for real-time simulation: Discover the difference it makes.
Vortex Studio Essentials equips you with professional tools that allow you to optimize 3D assets, model equipment mechanical properties and manage virtual environments using an intuitive graphical user interface.
Vortex Studio Essentials allows full mechanical modeling of simulated equipment, providing a level of accuracy that simulation solutions using gaming technology cannot achieve.
Vortex Studio Essentials is available free of charge, and can be used to power virtual prototyping and operator training simulators.
Vortex Studio Essentials frees you from the burden of adapting solutions that were not designed to achieve the level of fidelity required by real-time simulation projects. It allows you to spend more time on your project, and less time on maintaining disparate technology integrations.
The Essentials edition provides access to Vortex Studio’s core mechanical dynamics engine, allowing you to model highly-accurate contacts, collisions and vehicle systems1 with true-to-life performance and behaviour. Vortex Studio Essentials also allows you to simulate cable systems1, enabling the simulation of lifting and towing equipment.
1 Vehicle and cable simulation capabilities are only available for non-commercial simulators.
Vortex Studio Essentials delivers the full capabilities of Vortex Studio’s visualisation system. Designed for real-time simulation, it renders scenes in vivid details on desktop systems and immersive multi-channel simulators. With dynamic lighting and reflection, realistic weather effects and full integration with Vortex Studio’s dynamics engine, it provides a flexible and cost-effective visualisation solution.
Vortex Studio Essentials equips you with the same integrated simulation debugging and optimization tools used by military training simulation integrators and off-highway OEMs, eliminating the need to maintain disparate technology integrations.
Vortex Studio Essentials provides full access to Vortex Studio’s extensive software development kit, allowing you to extend its capabilities and integrate third-party software and hardware solutions. This lets you integrate Vortex Studio directly in your simulation toolchain, and ensures it can be adapted to unique project needs, protecting your technology investment.
