PyDy: Visualization of the simulated motion of multibody systems

by Tarun Gaba for Python Software Foundation

Currently, mechanics module from SymPy(sympy.physics.mechanics) is used for generating Equations of Motions(EoM's) of multibody systems using other python tools, in a workflow(PyDy). The aim of this project is to provide a module for visualizing the motion of 3-Dimensional Multibody systems using output data from the mechanics module, after introducing some relevant code-refractoring for allowing mechanics package to interact with the above said module. The plugin would be able to render the animations in a WebGL compatible browser. Will also require patching as well as some fresh code on sympy.physics.mechanics side to complete the visualization workflow..
