NEW FEATURES IN V10

Licensing Changes

  • Flowcode is free for makers and hobbyists with full functionality for a limited range of chips.
  • Free chips include popular maker devices like Arduino Uno, Nano, PIC16F18877 and 70 more devices.
  • Professional users get commercial code rights, priority support in the forums and advanced features within the program.
  • Academic institutions need to purchase a site license and students can use the free version at home.

Dedicated 2D component panels

  • New 2D panels provide clearer graphics, customisation of all panels with your own drawings, notes and much more printer friendly options available.
  • Add an unlimited number of 2D panels into your project.
  • Unlocks a host of new 2D panel only panel options such as graphing tools.

New 2D components

  • All components have been redesigned with clearer graphics.
  • Backwards compatible with V9 panels.
  • 3D still supported - our aim is to support models from Solidworks export whilst control moves to 2D panels for clarity.
  • New primitive components with nesting properties.

Create Web based applications*

  • HTML export allows you to create control and data gathering projects that function on any browser on any platform
  • Javascript based components allow simple web based applications to be produced.
  • Works on low cost hardware like Arduino and Raspberry Pi
  • Compatible with existing web server components in Flowcode
* Coming Soon

Project documentation and export

  • New project reports facility.
  • New 2D primitives allow you to annotate each flowchart and panel.
  • Allows easy sharing of projects.

Improved simulation

  • Plot variables on graph, scope and data recorder.
  • Improved variable display on simulation .
  • Faster simulation.

Open source components

  • Code behind components can be viewed.
  • Code for any component can be edited and customised (get source from Wiki)
