Please recommend softwares for robot simulation.

Important features:
Mainly I'd use it for simulation (offline programming is not important now, if it is cheaper without OLP, it is an advantage).
I'd use if for arc welding combined with handling.
Thermal cutting could be an option...
We have ABB robot, but it'd be advantageous, if it'd be brand independent.
Price matters... :)

Softwares I already know (without any hands on experience in them):
Octopuz, ABB Robot Studio, Delfoi, RobCad

Any other possibility?

Pros and cons regarding these softwares?

Thanks for your respose...

András

Others include RoboDK, Sprutcam and V-REP.  Don't know prices except Robotstudio, $1500/year.

Yes, I have found RoboDK. The price is on the website. It isn't expensive: 3k €.

Robot studio seems cheap at the first sight, however this 1.3k € doesn't contain Cad converters (step, igs, 3D specific formats), power packs (Arc Welding, Machine tending, picking, cutting).
These options means another 1.5k €/piece.
On the other hand, if I would like to use it only for arc welding and picking (what I exactly need at the moment) and buy a CAD converter (for example Solid Egde). It is about 5k €

On the other hand, still I don't know that the Robot Studio Power packs and cad converter prices are also one year prices, or eternal license.

UPDATE:
all price is for one year license  :icon_neutral:

Forgot about Robot Master, but that goes as addon to CAM software, probably adds up to quite a bit.  Delmia and Process simulate were also left out, but they are really going to cost a lot.

I already have price for Octopuz, I will get price soon for Robot Expert (Siemens), and asked for Delfoi.

RoboDK seems good for me (in price and funcions).

When do I need additional CAM software for my OLP/simulation software? Only for machining?

I would use these sofwares for arc welding, and pick and place applications.

Yes, CAM is only for machining. It doesn't apply to you.
