The use of simulators greatly facilitates the work of specialists. Their usage produces results that could prevent errors in real systems. Using a simulator for industrial plants would reduce the programming time of their automation. We propose to develop a simulation platform of industrial machinery with 3D virtual reality, to carry out experiments of PLC (Programable Logic Controllers) programming. A physic engine will be needed to be integrated in the application with a graphic interface which will be used to design, to programm and to visualize the simulation of the plant. Showing the first results of a first prototype, being the most general possible in programming to demonstrate the possibilities of such software both educational and commercial.
