Overview of Ansys PyMAPDL — Lesson 1

Ansys PyMAPDL is a Python application programming interface (API), that is offered under the PyAnsys umbrella to access the MAPDL solver and its generated simulation data. In this video, we will discuss the versatile nature of Python, its applications when combined with MAPDL, and who is it useful for. We will also learn how to install and launch PyMAPDL. Finally, we'll explore ways to integrate MAPDL and various Python packages, thereby bringing together the best of both worlds.
