Python wrapper for Plant Simulation

Project description

Python Package for communication with Siemens Tecnomatix Plant Simulation

This package enables the communication with the simulation software product "Tecnomatix Plant Simulation" by Siemens. It speaks to PlantSim via the COM interface from within Python and includes useful mappings for some more complex PlantSim data types like tables.


from plantsim.plantsim import Plantsim
from plantsim.table import Table

plantsim = Plantsim(version='15.2', license_type='Research')
table = Table(plantsim, 'TableName')



You need a working version of Tecnomatix Plant Simulation installed on your system to be able to use this package.

System settings

If you have a NVIDIA 3D graphics card installed, make sure to select it as the default in the "NVIDIA Control Panel". Otherwise when loading a model into Plant Simulation, you will get an information window that you need to manually click every time.


This repository was created within the Public Research Project AlphaMES run by the Chair of Technologies and Management of Digital Transformation within the University of Wuppertal.

It was funded via a research grant by the German Federal Ministry for Economics and Energy (BMWi).


This package is currently maintained by Tilo van Ekeris and Constantin Waubert de Puiseau.
