Kurt Knutson, the manager of ATA’s software group, gave a free webinar introducing the Femap application program interface (API) in June 2015. The Femap API is a way to expand Femap’s existing functions to work within industry-specific or customized workflows. Kurt discussed the basics of the API and provided many tips on how to get started. He also showed where the API can be effectively used by demonstrating some API programs that ATA has created.
Jonathan Buck updated the presentation for the 2018 Femap Symposium in San Diego, adding more discussion of common API methodologies, additional resources, and new demos and examples.
