ArtiSynth Modeling Guide

Chapter 1 ArtiSynth Overview

ArtiSynth is an open-source, Java-based system for creating and simulating mechanical and biomechanical models, with specific capabilities for the combined simulation of rigid and deformable bodies, together with contact and constraints. It is presently directed at application domains in biomechanics, medicine, physiology, and dentistry, but it can also be applied to other areas such as traditional mechanical simulation, ergonomic design, and graphical and visual effects.
