Importing remote forces

Is there any way to import (via scripting or other) a list of remote forces?  I am trying to simulate the deflection of a body under numerous (>1,000) spring probes.

 

Thanks in advance,

Josh

(p.s. I'm an electrical engineer - not mechanical!)

Unfortunately there are currently not any API support for the Simulation capabilities in Fusion, so what you want to do is not possible.  API support for SIM is planned but it won't be available in the short term.

Is there an estimated timeframe for simulation support in the API?  There are a couple of addin ideas I would love to be able to try out. 🙂

It's not currently on our backlog but has been discussed.  I hate to even guess about when it might be available because it would be a complete guess at this point.  I think I'm safe in saying in won't be in the next few upcoming months.

Thanks, Brian, I figured not too many people were clamoring for it currently.  If it ever gets added, and you need people to help beat it up at any point during development, please feel free to ping me. 🙂
