Press Release: FlexSim Unlocks the Power of Simulation with an NVIDIA Omniverse Connector

FlexSim has always made it a priority to stay on the cutting edge of simulation technology. Often, this means features and improvements centred on building, running, and analyzing simulation models. Sometimes, it means something completely new and exciting.

FlexSim’s NVIDIA Omniverse Connector and support for Universal Scene Description, also known as OpenUSD, are the latest additions to the flagship 3D simulation modeling and analysis software.



FlexSim allows you to model your systems with easy-to-use tools and in-depth analytics so that you can test “what if” scenarios and make smart optimizations to maximise your efficiency. FlexSim comes with all the proven benefits of discrete-event simulation—but with the added bonus of highly realistic, immersive 3D graphics. The look of FlexSim’s 3D models help you emulate a real system, making it more intuitive to see and understand what’s going on.

Key Applications:

  • Factory Simulation
  • Material Handling
  • Warehouse Simulation
  • Manufacturing and Production Simulation


This coming together of FlexSim and NVIDIA Omniverse, a development platform for connecting and building 3D pipelines, tools, applications, and services based on OpenUSD, allows people to work with the tools they already feel comfortable with while collaborating with their team on larger 3D projects. If OpenUSD is the bridge between 3D applications, then Omniverse is the road system that unifies the workflows—up to and including real-time, bi-directional collaboration with 3D data. Additional benefits include:

  • Efficient Integration into Workflows:
    • Reduced integration time for FlexSim models into internal tools.
    • Time savings from several weeks to several days.
    • Fewer opportunities for human error in integration.
  • Interoperability and Standardization:
    • OpenUSD enables standardization and collaboration among different software tools.
    • Flexibility to choose the best tool for specific tasks.
  • Expanded Ecosystem:
    • Integration possibilities with an expanding ecosystem of OpenUSD- and Omniverse-enabled software.
    • Potential integration with physics software for more accurate simulations.
  • Reduced Model-Building Time:
    • Smooth workflow from CAD to OpenUSD to FlexSim accelerates development.
    • Faster model creation, particularly for extensive facilities.
  • Real-Time, Connected Digital Twins:
    • Potential for real-time, connected digital twins.
    • Improved integration and data flow with IoT devices, production systems, and logistics networks.
    • Continuously updated simulations for accurate analysis of complex scenarios.
  • Enhanced 3D Visualization:
    • Improved 3D visualization capabilities with NVIDIA Omniverse.
    • High-fidelity representation of processes and systems.
    • Better understanding of intricate details, inefficiencies, and potential changes’ impact.
  • Data-Driven Decision-Making:
    • Gain insights from FlexSim simulations for data-driven decisions.
    • Explore “what-if” scenarios and assess potential changes before implementation.
    • Avoid costly mistakes and identify process improvement opportunities.
  • Game-Changing Synergy:
    • The synergy between FlexSim, OpenUSD, and NVIDIA Omniverse empowers businesses.
    • Visualization of complex systems, process optimization, and informed decision-making.
    • Competitive edge in innovation, efficiency, and success in dynamic industries.

These benefits highlight the potential for improved efficiency, collaboration, and innovation in various industries through the integration of these technologies.
