Note: If your university is an ExtendSim Adopter and/or has an Academic Floating license of ExtendSim on campus, please be sure you download the correct release of ExtendSim Student. ExtendSim 10 is the most current release and has now been transtitioned into use by most schools. However, some universities are still using ExtendSim 9. Please check with your professor if you are unsure which release you should be using.
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.
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.
There is no upgrade path and technical support is limited to installation questions.
Models built and saved in a Trial version of ExtendSim cannot be opened in ExtendSim Student. ExtendSim Student can only open models built in an activated Model Developer Edition license or from another Student version.
