FloWorks 2018 Beta Available

Talumis FloWorks for FlexSim

FloWorks 2018.0.0 will be released in parallel with FlexSim 2018. This new version of FloWorks adds two features that have been sitting on our wish list for a while: support for Quick Properties and a brand new set of tutorials. Therefore we are releasing it as a public beta.

The latest beta version, released December 8, can be found in the Downloads section of your FlexSim account on the 3rd party modules tab. Click "More Versions" to show the Beta release.

Along with FloWorks 18.0.0, we will provide a final bug fix release for versions 17.2 and 17.0, with the changes listed below.

Please do not hesitate to report any bugs, usability improvements and feature requests to [email protected].
