how to get free help?

For some reason, I usually get bombarded with people requesting me to help them with their AnyLogic projects for free. Sometimes I suspect people think I’m an AnyLogic customer service representative. But, I’m not. I have generally very little free time, and the free time I have, I spend time in public forums where my help can actually benefit not only the person who is asking, but also people who will need similar help in the future. If you are someone who just sent me a message asking for help without context, I will assume you need free help and you will be redirected to this article.

How can you find free help for your AnyLogic models?

There are 3 places in which you can find free and high quality help.


Go to and ask your technical questions there, using the Anylogic tag. I am very active in Stackoverflow, and when I have time, I go there and answer questions. Be specific though, you will only get help if you have a clear concise question. Nobody will help if you just want someone to make the model for you.

Linkedin Users Group

If you have philosophical questions about simulations, or if you want tips on how to approach a modeling problem, this is the place to go. I am also very active in this community and I answer questions there very often. Get connected to other AnyLogic users. The website is

Research Gate

If you are doing research, and need to get papers related to the simulation topic you are studying, this is the place to go. I am not active there, but you can get some professionals help you with related articles or books. Not a very good place to ask technical questions. The link is

But what if you want to actually hire me to develop or support your model?

I can definitely help you, and you can find my fees at if you scroll down the main page. These fees are public so nobody thinks about getting a discount. If your budget is very low, I suggest you read the following article that will allow you to understand how to optimize the costs of your project, maintaining high quality: This article is particularly useful if you have no document describing what you want to achieve.

If you have a larger project, you can always just book a free meeting with me at to discuss it.

    Hi Jaco,

    I would like to thank you for the reply.

    I have an excel file that has different product sizes ( example – 10mm, 20mm, 30mm).

    I would like to separate different groups based on size.

    for example:

    13mm to 14mm – group A.

    14mm to 15mm – group B.

    After separating the groups, I would like to give these sizes and respective group names to the source, and then finally size and groups are assembled in the assembly station.

    Could you please help me.

    Thanks a lot in advance.
