I attached a model which generates 'boxes with parts' and 'parts only'.
We can select which source to use. We can select to dismantle or not.
Selecting the 'box with part' and simply send it to the bottom line creates PlantSim to crash.
This attached model is a simplified version of my main model where I like to use this kind of functionality.
Parts in a box are received and an inspection location.
We can select if either the complete batch goes from inspection station to the next one, ... or the parts go individually.
Solved! Go to Solution.
It seems PlantSim (V14.2) crashes when "Part" or "Container" selects a destination that is behind a "DismantleStation" (in "Part only" is "Automatic Routing" disabled).
Temporarily it helps to use a "transporter"....
My real model is a testroom where workers perform some services on machines.
Transporters can not be used as they run on tracks.
I setup a model to run transporters in 2017 where I gained some experience on this kind of part transportation.
Worker can walk freely around, I have setup my real model with barred areas to have the worker move in the realistic way.
This simple model is just to show/publish the issue.
As you say 'seems', ... I still have some hope that there is a way to fix it.
This bug has been fixed. The maintenance pack 14.2.4 will probably not be out in the next few weeks. If you need a hotfix, please contact your local support. Note that version 15 does not contain this bug, so upgrading to version 15 will solve your problem too.
