Some organizations choose to customize their ANSYS simulation environment to capture analysts’ expertise and know-how as well as give non-expert users access to advanced models. Improving the efficiency of simulation engineers is another benefit of customization, as complex in-house processes can easily be exposed and standardized for daily use.
ANSYS ACT is the tool for customizing the Mechanical interface within ANSYS Workbench. ANSYS offers several tools for customizing structural mechanics analyses. The APDL language is the foundation of scripting at the solver level, allowing a user to automate solver procedures and get access to the details of the finite element model.
