Note: This Early Access software is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to use this software in its current state, then you should wait to see if it progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“There are a vast number of features I want to include with VR Robotics Simulator, but I will need to rely on community feedback as to which features will ultimately need to be focused on. Moving VR Robotics Simulator into Early Access prior to a full release will enable to me review early adopter feedback and provide extra polish and functionality before the first major release.”

Approximately how long will this software be in Early Access?

“About four to six months.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“I plan to include more robot arms and positioner types and new machining processes such as painting and grinding. I also plan on including an entire Education section that will encompass basic robot kinematics in a hand-on fashion that only VR can offer. In addition to this I will be adding the ability to import custom CAD models.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“This version has a number of pre-built robotic cells for the users to jump in and play with, focused around arc/spot welding and material handling. The user can also build and save their own cell creations.”

Will this software be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes, EA will have a slightly lower price due to the reduced amount of content compared to the anticipated full release.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Feedback will be handled through email, r/Unity3D, website and Steam pages.”

VR Robotics Simulator Early Access Announcement

VR Robotics Simulator is now available in Early Access!

I am very pleased to announce that VR Robotics Simulator is ready to be released into the wild!

I built this application for my fellow engineers and robotics enthusiasts. Room scale VR is a perfect fit for building robot cells and interacting with robot arms. My goal is to make industrial robotics and automation accessible to everyone. I hope that you will join me on this journey and look forward to your feedback.

Special thanks to all the beta testers who helped get things started, and to all the people over at r/Unity3d and r/gamedev who helped me with technical and philosophical questions.

Improvements in next 3 months

CAD importer
Importing OBJ format in real time
Better placement tools
Ability to manually adjust object positions to millimeter accuracy, smart snapping, better visual indicators
Better joint position indicators on robot
Sound effects for servo motors
Message display
Real-time in-scene message log
Additional programming features
Joint moves (e.g. J1 +45 deg), program branching, inter-arm communication
Better scene data
Pick and locate individual scene items form a Scene Manager window in VR
More robot arm models / positioner models

If you have any questions, comments, concerns or feedback, I'd love to hear from you! Shoot me an email at, or on Reddit at u/mindrend, or here on Steam.

There are some trainining videos here.

Thank you for supporting virtual reality development!

About This Software

VR Robotics Simulator is an engineering tool used for industrial robot simulation, design, layout, rapid prototyping and reach analysis built exclusively for the HTC Vive.

With VR Robotics Simulator, you can build a robotic cell and program your robot within minutes. You can conduct reach studies to select the correct size and type of robot arm, choose the best positioning equipment for your application and use it as a Guided Sales tool to help customers visualize solutions. Using VR Robotics Simulator you can:

- Browse a large selection of pre-configured robotic work cells from the Selection Halls. This will allow you to examine these different work cells in detail and develop an appreciation for their relative size and capabilities.

- Includes a variety of 6 axis manipulators and delta robots.

- Cells include a variety of single and multi-axis positioners such as headstocks, tilt/rotate, skyhook, drop center, H frames, ferris wheels, floor/ceiling tracks, and multi-axis gantries.

- Build a cell from the ground up in real time. Save your creations for later use.

- Experiment with several different tooling options such as arc welding, spot welding and vacuum/magnetic/claw grippers.

- Learn about robotics and how to operate VRRS from the Training Room. This will cover basic robotics concepts, how to operate the various arms and positioners in VRRS, and how to construct your own robot cells.

Immerse yourself in the world of industrial robots and interact with your creations in Virtual Reality!
