Or if you want to truly simulate a machine with controls, sequencing and apply physics you need to be looking at something like Mechatronic Conceptual Design! On the video skip to about the 8:30 point! This truly is the missing the link in the design workflow. It allows design, electrical and controls to work together at the same time to troubleshoot a machine prior to cutting any steel or spending the weeks editting control sequences on the floor.
thank you for the link. Any idea of the cost of the license? I have found robodk that seems to do what I'm looking for, but it costs 3000 USD and it could be too much for something that I will use just a few times in one year.
