Join ANSYS for this FREE hands-on event highlighting ANSYS Mechanical using ACT for post processing extensions.


Many companies have their own preferred workflow for an analysis project. As today’s engineering software become increasingly easy to use, great efficiency can be gained if all the tools can come together in a centralized interface.


ANSYS Mechanical has been welcomed by engineers because of its simple interface with powerful solver technology.  More importantly, it is extendable and customizable through the ANSYS Customization Toolkit (ACT). It allows user to automate with Python, reuse APDL scripts, add new features, read in spreadsheet data or connect with external solvers.  This seminar will introduce customization of ANSYS Mechanical and have our engineers enjoy the fun of Python scripting!
