After having run the installer, launch Simeo with one of these options:
Note: For Linux and Mac, it may be needed to change the permission of the script to enable the 'executable' property.
If the graphical user interface does not follow this layout, choose Window > Edition layout.
Create a new project and select Simeo's scene editor:
Select the plants to be added.
The files are now in the list: select the one to be added
Select the way you would like to add the plants.
Click in the scene (clicks must be within the terrain): one plant is added in the scene at each chosen location.
Configure the rendering panel
The rendering of the plants changes. You may configure the renderer with its configuration panel below the renderer list:
Use the 3D View navigation toolbar to navigate in the scene
You may select in different manners in Simeo:
Whatever the selection mode you choose, the selection is reported to all views.
Use the Project menu of Simeo:
If you create or open several projects, they can be watched in the Projects panel. Each project contains at least one step (drawn by a button with a date).
Note: Projects attached to Evolution models may contain several steps calculated by the model when the user triggers an evolution: right-click on the starting step > Evolution > choose parameters > Ok. Edito projects contain only one step with a single scene attached.
A scene in Simeo can be exported to files in various formats or passed to other connected simulators.
The Open Plant Scene export exports the Edito scene to the .ops format (one of the AMAPstudio standard formats):
