How-to video: Converting CAD drawings to walls

Computers should reduce the amount of work we need to do, especially where repetition is involved. For instance, when you have a CAD model of a building or physical space that you would like to simulate, wouldn’t it be great to reuse the layout and convert the walls to elements in the simulation model? This is exactly what you can do in AnyLogic.

Head of Training Services at the AnyLogic Company, Ilya Grigoryev, demonstrates the conversion of CAD drawings to walls in a new AnyLogic how-to video. The handy conversion feature significantly simplifies model development for projects such as those concerning pedestrian movement and building information modeling (BIM).
