Limited ExtendSim Products

ExtendSim Student

ExtendSim Student is designed for students building models for classwork. It allows students to:

Build and save small (75 blocks or less) models for classwork.

Interactively run those models and other small models, change settings, view animation, and save simulation results.

Utilize advanced ExtendSim technology such as Optimization, the Scenario Manager, built-in databases, ability to build custom blocks, etc.

Use scripting to build or change small models and to move blocks on a worksheet.

Print model worksheets, block dialogs, and so forth.

Interactively run larger models in Player RunTime mode, change settings, view animation and see results (but you won't be able to save or print results of larger models).

However, there are some limitations:

The models you build are limited to a maximum of 75 blocks.

The Student version can run models built in other Student licenses or a Model Developer Edition of ExtendSim.

ExtendSim Student opens all models with an "ExtendSim Student" watermark on the model worksheet. Models created in ExtendSim Student will maintain that watermark when opened in other ExtendSim licenses.

Scripting cannot be used to run models remotely.

This version is licensed only for your personal use on a single computer.

The Student version may not be used for commercial purposes, including consulting or research that is subsidized by a private or government enterprise.
