Weld Simulation in ArcWelding PowerPac


Is it possible to simulate a weld with the ArcWelding PowerPac (AWPP) to actually physically see a weld like you do in real life? 

We have the Painting PowerPac and can actually see paint on the component when run in simulation. Is it similar where smart components are needed to make this work? 

Before considering updating our license to include AWPP I would like to know if it is possible. Is this add-in essential to achieve this? I have watched many videos of people using the AWPP but none show a physical weld after the program is run.

The station was created from a backup from our real robot and arcware is set up and Arc instructions recognized.

I want to use our VR headset with this eventually.
