RecurDyn Automation / Customization

The design and simulation of a mechanical system can be made more efficient by the automation of repetitive tasks and the use of customized user interfaces. RecurDyn provides a specialized environment for the automation of repeated tasks and creating custom UI.


RecurDyn/ProcessNet is a powerful, script-based customization environment that is built into RecurDyn/Professional. RecurDyn/ProcessNet allows users to create their own GUI features for RecurDyn/Modeler that can manipulate model data, create customized dialog boxes and UI features, automate tasks, and encapsulate domain knowledge and best practices. RecurDyn/ProcessNet can access and manipulate both pre-processing data as well as post-processing data. RecurDyn/ProcessNet uses Microsoft.NET for the scripting environment. Scripts can be created using various .net languages, and documentation is provided for C# and Visual Basic. Through RecurDyn/ProcessNet users can dramatically extend the functionality of RecurDyn/Professional to meet their unique simulation requirements.


  • Various RecurDyn API allow you to develop a variety of customized features using C#.
