SIM-VICUS is hosted on github, where you can download the source code, post feature requests and bug reports. This page also includes all model and developer documentation:


Below is a list of releases (currently pre-releases, as SIM-VICUS is still under active development):


v0.6.3-beta - Usability upgrades and many small bug fixes

This release is a consolidation release - we started using SIM-VICUS in some real-world projects and stumbled across quite a few issues that we fixed right away. With the larger models we needed to look at performance a litte and improved the navigation tree a lot (both functionality-wise and regarding performance).

v0 6 3

Look at the closed issues list for details.

v0.6.2-beta - IDF Importing Upgrades

A lot of IDF import projects have been tested and bugs related to different IDF flavours have been fixed. Also, importing of slightly imperfect geometry (polygons with vertexes out of plane; polygons with same vertexes/zero length segments etc.) has been improved.

Also, the NANDRAD FMU Generator tool has received as substantial feature upgrade (sorting/filtering/input variable mapping), that might be particularly useful for larger simulation projects to be turned into FMUs:


Now there is also a manual (though in german) for this tool:

Also, we switched to VC 2019 and Qt 5.15.2 on Windows.

v0.6.1-beta - Fine-tuning for Public Release

This version includes many smaller improvements and fixes, primarily targeting the Windows platform (Linux version works fine; Mac version seems to work fine, too). Also, IDF Import has been further improved - now pretty large models can be imported already:
