Scenes

Factory I/O includes a list of ready-to-use scenes inspired by typical industrial applications. These scenes can be seen as ranging from beginner to advanced difficulty levels. However, a difficulty level is an abstract concept since it will depend on how far you want to take the design of a control algorithm. Note that these scenes are read-only and cannot be overwritten. In order to customize one of these scenes, save and open it from My Scenes.

To open a scene, click on File > Open (Ctrl+O) and select it from the list.
