PyOptiSLang documentation 0.4.2#


Ansys optiSLang is a constantly evolving, leading-edge answer to the challenges posed by CAE-based RDO (Robust Design Optimization). Its state-of-the-art algorithms efficiently and automatically search for the most robust design configuration, eliminating the slow, manual process that used to define RDO.

What is PyOptiSLang?#

PyOptiSLang is part of the larger PyAnsys effort to facilitate the use of Ansys technologies directly from Python. PyOptiSLang implements a client-server architecture. Communication between PyOptiSLang (client) and the running optiSLang process (server) is based on the plain TCP/IP technology. However, you need to interact only with the Python interface.

You can use PyOptiSLang to programmatically create, interact with, and control an optiSLang project. Additionally, you can use it to create custom scripts that can speed up and automate simulations.

PyOptiSLang lets you use optiSLang within a Python environment of your choice in conjunction with other PyAnsys libraries and external Python libraries.


The ansys-optislang-core package provides these features:

Documentation and issues#

In addition to installation and usage information, the PyOptiSLang documentation provides API member descriptions, examples, and contribution information.

On the PyOptiSLang Issues page, you can create issues to submit questions, report bugs, and request new features. This is the best place to post questions and code.
