In 20-sim, creating models only takes you just a few mouse clicks. By dragging an element from the library and dropping it in the graphical editor, your model is actually built the same way as you would draw an engineering scheme. 20-sim supports various model representations, such as block diagrams and iconic diagrams. These representations may be combined in one model.

You can find the library at the left of the Editor.

The library contains a various sections:

Bond Graph: bond graph elements
Iconic Diagrams: Physical components
Signal: Block diagram elements
