algorithmic modeling for Rhino



Coyote is an add-on for Grasshopper that is capable of sending design model and  data setting to Ansys WorkBench in order to simulate explosions, and retrieve result data from Ansys/Autodyn back to Grasshopper for presentation.

Coyote is not ready for release yet.

Any progress on this interesting plug in?

Hi Sarkawt, Back to Djordje's comment, I put a script together few years ago for a friend to automate the process of running CFD simulation with Fluent Ansys: ( At the time workbench was so new and my knowledge in scripting was close to 0! Nevertheless, if you are interested, I have a broken code that I can share and used to work. I don't have access to Fluen Ansys to try it myself.

Thanks Firat Aydin,

what software do you use in Ansys for your static structure analysis? 

if you don't want to define something manually,, perhaps you might need to learn about the scripting in Ansys. you may start from the help file of Ansys itself...

Nice work.
I am also in need of an interface of Rhino n Ansys.
Some different but much simpler. Can you guide me with it?
I am more interested in static structure analysis in ansys.

When it is complex assemblies, it is really shitty to define constrains in Ansys. 
So, I can define my boundary conditions with a small definition in rhino, then transfer it to Ansys. 

I dont need a complete analysis.

I just need to transfer my boundary conditions from rhino to Ansys.

Thank You

Thanks djordje,

for the time being yes,

because i am working on explosions may be for the next two years,

but if someone is willing to help me with how to read .msh file from Ansys mechanical i think we can easily get advantage of other Ansys CFDs especially explicit dynamics like FEM, weight, and Colliding. As Cyote already prepare Ansys to do that, but currently only retrieve simulation domain data.

Great work Sarkawt! Do you plan on including some other features of Ansys CFD or just the ones specifically for explosions?
