I have a script within Spaceclaim that develops a unidirectional composite matrix with fibers. I also have an external MATLAB function that randomly generates origin locations for the fibers and I'm wondering if there is way to take these points from MATLAB (or a txt file) and have them inputted into the python script within SpaceClaim to update fiber positions on my geometry. Any ways of interfacing spaceclaim scripts with programs outside of ANSYS would be of interest to me.
I can include pictures of my current geometry and manual inputs if it's helpful.

You can import the point cloud and then should be able to use generated points in your script further.
Also, did you look at Material designer:

Your suggestions pointed me in the right direction. I actually discovered the code to directly read a CSV file with (x,y,z) coordinates into spaceclaim via the scripting tool.
And yes, I have been using Material designer as well to do some fiber modeling.
Thank you for the suggestions!
