Simulating mechanic in V-REP (by User1)
I found interesting link that show cooperation between SolveSpace (modeling) and V-REP (simulating) for analyze complex mechanism

Anybody can give tutorial how use both them for complete task?

Robotic simulation (by Roland Frank)
Having a first look at RoboDK i was very impressed.

Since it can import Step on Windows and STL on all platforms i will try to investigate further if i have time.

I downoaded instaled and played around
I noticed that it was a trail version
after some googling i found out that a download of RoboDK gives you a 30 days free trail.
A licence after that period starts at about 3000.-USD !!!

Here another one - "Linkage". This program free and designed for Windows, but maybe could run under Wine too.

RoKiSim (by Roland Frank)
It seems that one of the head guys developping RoKiSim
left the team and created RoboDK.

RoKiSim is open source but unfortunately not developed
any further.

V-Rep is great ... (by Roland Frank)
Well, for a pure ROBOT Simulator, i enjoyed playing around with Robo Analyzer (, where you can even add your own models via STL.

As for V-REP, you can import part by part via STL, set up joints and define the dynamics.
I did a four-bar-linkage and after some playing around got it to work ...

I found these two-forum-threads most useful

In the first thread, there is a link to a sample project

That did help very much (together with some hints provided in the forum-thread)
