Product: Ansys ModelCenter 14.5
Introduction: ModelCenter 14.5 introduces a new unified Component Plug-In Framework.
Components are independent of the workflow and are reusable and distributable among Ansys
products including ModelCenter® Desktop, ModelCenter® Remote Execution, and ModelCenter®
Issue: New ModelCenter® Component Plug-Ins now utilize a new, unified framework that allows the
created components to be independent of the workflow itself. This means the components are
reusable and distributable among Ansys products including ModelCenter® Desktop, ModelCenter®
Remote Execution, and ModelCenter® Cloud. The ModelCenter® Component Plug-Ins now offer more
straightforward automation capability that is easier to understand, easier to use, easier to teach, and is
more user friendly. The new framework is built on the lessons of 20 years of wrapping analyses. The
interfaces used will look familiar to anyone who has used our tools in the past, but the new framework
separates the execution of a Plug-In from the UIs that edit it to give flexibility and maintainability.
Impact: New workflows should use components built in the new unified Component Plug-In
Framework. Existing workflows and legacy plug-ins are still supported; however, users can update
existing workflows to take advantage of the new Component Plug-In Framework. Legacy Plug-Ins and
wrappers are still supported, and your existing workflows will still run exactly the same.
Resolution: When adding a new component to a workflow, a dialog will be shown allowing users to
specify any files associated with the analysis. When using QuickWrap select “Use Existing Directory” as
you may have an existing directory containing files. With Plug-Ins such as CAD, MATLAB, or Excel
Components select “Import Files Manually” if your analysis files aren’t already organized in a directory.
For components such as the Script Component where no files may be needed select “No Files Needed”.
Packaging files with the component makes reusing and distributing components easy.
