Artisynth is a mechanical modeling system that allows users to combine finite element method (FEM) components with multibody systems, constraints, and collision handling. It is implemented in Java, and provides a graphical interface for interactive model editing and simulation control.
At present, most Artisynth models are created with Java code, using the Artisynth API. The programmatic aspects of Artisynth are the focus of this manual.
