Is there a way in Mechanica/Simulate to write custom programs (like you can with FEMAP's API or ANSYS' APDL)? If there currently isn't, can anyone from PTC comment on whether this functionality could be supported? I think there could be some real value in allowing users to create custom tools via programming to help stream-line processes (like the fastener tool in Mechanica for exmaple), and being able to share with them other users.
