The 'Mimic Creator' gives the user the opportunity to produce 2-dimensional mimics which are more specific to a particular project or interest. A mimic is created by overlaying bitmaps, one for the background and other smaller ones to be displayed or removed when the inputs and outputs turn on or off. The bitmaps can be from digital camera images, scanned pictures/photographs or drawn directly with a paint package. The 'Creator' will position, label and define the function of these bitmaps so that Flowol can control them appropriately.
Two sets of bitmaps are included with the 'Creator'. As the user works through the tutorial they will produce mimics of an 'Automatic Door Light' and 'Elevator System' which they can then add to their mimic folder. The Mimic Creator software is for Windows PC only, but once the mimic is created, it can be converted into one for the Apple Mac.
