Is it possible to combine with Ansys and Matlab/Python in mechanical area. I want to do my simulations in Ansys to finite element method and then I want to execute the data from Ansys and continue to optimize my model with a programming language like a Matlab or Python. As I understand there is APDL and Scripting section in Ansys but I do not know which one could be good to execute a simulation. Is there any batch scripting? If so, how I can learn what to do? Thanks.
