ExtendSim Student is designed for students building models for classwork. It allows students to:

  • Build and save small (75 blocks or less) models for classwork.
  • Interactively run those models and other small models, change settings, view animation, and save simulation results.
  • Utilize advanced ExtendSim technology such as Optimization, the Scenario Manager, built-in databases, ability to build custom blocks, etc.
  • Use scripting to build or change small models and to move blocks on a worksheet.
  • Print model worksheets, block dialogs, and so forth.
  • Interactively run larger models in RunTime mode, change settings, view animation and see results (but you won't be able to save or print results of larger models).
  • Plus, includes the eTextbook ExtendSim for Discrete Event Systems Simulation.

However, there are some limitations:

  • The models you build are limited to a maximum of 75 blocks.
  • ExtendSim Student opens all models with an "ExtendSim Student" watermark on the model worksheet. Models created in ExtendSim Student will maintain that watermark when opened in other ExtendSim licenses.
  • Scripting cannot be used to run models remotely.
  • This version is licensed only for your personal use on a single computer.
  • The Student version may not be used for commercial purposes, including consulting or research that is subsidized by a private or government enterprise.
  • There is no upgrade path and technical support is limited to installation questions.
  • To activate ExtendSim Student, your device MUST have internet access. If a Student version cannot be activated automatically where the device is located, take the device to a location where automatic activation can take place. There is not an option for a manual activation of a Student version.
  • Models built and saved in a Trial version of ExtendSim cannot be opened in the Student version. ExtendSim Student can only open models built in an activated Model Developer Edition license or from another Student version.
  • A Trial version of ExtendSim CANNOT be converted into a Student version.
  • The Activation Key received when purchasing a Student version will only activate the Student version of ExtendSim. It will NOT activate a Trial version as the Trial version CANNOT be converted to a Student version.

Licensing

  • Each Student version of ExtendSim is a perpetual license that permits one person (the “Authorized User”) to install and use ExtendSim Student on their computer.

ExtendSim Student may not be used for commercial, professional, commercial training, or other for-profit purposes, including consulting or research subsidized by a private or government enterprise.
