Customizing ANSYS Mechanical Using the Application Customization Toolkit

The ANSYS Application Customization Toolkit (ACT) is a package of tools that enables the end user to customize ANSYS Mechanical. ACT provides the end user simple programming-level access to main components of the Mechanical product (e.g., GUI, mesh, geometry, boundary conditions, etc.) in a Python programming environment. One of the many customization possibilities ACT offers is the ability to replace MAPDL command objects by creating specialized interfaces for company or industry specific applications. These specialized interfaces can simplify and standardize many Mechanical actions. ANSYS DesignModeler and ANSYS DesignXplorer users realize significant enhancements and ease-of-use improvements ACT in ANSYS 15.0.

This webinar explains the basic functions and uses of ACT. It discusses implementation and provides examples.
