Insight Maker 4.0 Released

We are pleased to announce the release of Insight Maker 4.0. The following major features have been added to Insight Maker since version 3.0:

  • Vector Primitives (Arrays): You can now easily vectorize primitives in your models to represent different categories or classes of behavior. (Video Overview)
  • Optimizer: Automatically search through your parameters to find the set of values that best fits historical data or to maximize or minimize some goal.
  • Storytelling: Guide your audience through your model step-by-step. Reveal primitives, expand folders, and provide messages to highlight the key parts of the model.
  • Power Programming: You could always use Insight Maker's equation language to augment Insight Maker's capabilities with new functions. This equation language has now been extended to support Functional and Object Oriented programming. Closures, anonymous functions, prototype-based inheritance, and more; it is all there now.
  • Much More: Many minor improvements, enhancements and optimizations have been made to Insight Maker with a focus on ease-of-use. These include:
    • Improved touch and tablet support,
    • Sketching support for converter graphs,
    • String manipulation support,
    • Improved error messages and error handling,
    • Additional simulation functions,
    • Extended documentation,
    • Primitive rotation and other diagram enhancements,
    • and much more...
These features are added to Insight Makers extensive set of existing modeling and simulation capabilities which include:
  • Web interface to build and runs models without software download needed
  • System Dynamics Modeling
  • Agent Based Modeling
  • Sensitivity Testing Tool
  • Extensive Units Support
  • 1st Order and 4th Order differential equation engines
  • Macros and Scripting Features to extend the capabilities of Insight Maker
  • The ability to share a model as a webpage simply by sending a link
  • Insight Maker is Free and Open Source
