As of v2.19.9 BowlerStudio has added 2 brand new subsystems.

First is MuJoCo Physics Engine. Bowlerstudio will now generate MuJoCo xml models from a given robot or from items either free or fixed in the scene. That means that any scene of robots and terrain can be simulated in Physics. Mujoco is an extremely  fast multi contact jointed system modeler.

In addition to physics, a system of Vitamins has been added. Vitamins are models of the void in a printed part into which an off the shelf component must fit. Users can add vitamins to any link or mobilebase. They can use a game controller to fly the part around in 3d to place it withing the given frame.
