In an ideal world every piece of software has a button that does exactly what you want, but in the real world you will find yourself completing repetitive tasks either within a single model or each time to create a model.

Repetitive tasks waste the time of engineers and can lead to errors through lack of attention.  MSC Apex has adopted the Python scripting language with its own extensions in order to make automation of tasks a fairly straightforward thing. 

This short video shows the simplest example – creating materials - as well as a more complex task – automatically creating fixings between plates in an assembly.



MSC Apex - fully integrated generative simulation environment

Built-from-the-ground up fully integrated and generative simulation environment

Unified CAE Environment for Virtual Product Development, Apex transforms the way engineers perform simulation by reducing critical CAE modeling and process time from days to hours.

The platform delivers innovative technology that enables predictive product development in  earlier stages of design where it is critical in saving time and money.
