Emergency evacuation from new, higher than normal, aircraft is believed to be affected by a new variable: passenger's hesitation at the exit door. This paper discusses how a previous simulation studying this effect was replicated in Cell-DEVS using the CD++ toolkit and how the results were visualized using the Blender Python interface. We will show how one can relatively easily apply advanced visualization techniques to any DEVS simulator results. As well, we noticed that the initial design of the model and simulation can limit the level of visualization which can be achieved if that design is not intended for visualization in the first place.
