AnyPyTools is a toolkit for working with the AnyBody Modeling System (AMS) from Python. It enables reproduceable research with the AnyBody Modeling System, and bridges the gap to whole ecosystem of open source scientific Python.

The AnyPyTools Python package enables batch processing, parallization of model simulations, model sensitivity studies, and parameter studies, using either Monte-Carlo (random sampling) or Latin hypercube sampling. It makes reproducible research much easier and replaces the tedious process of manually automating the musculoskeletal simulations and aggregating the results.

If you use the library for publications please cite as:

Lund et al., (2019). AnyPyTools: A Python package for reproducible research with the AnyBody Modeling System. Journal of Open Source Software, 4(33), 1108,


conda config --add channels conda-forge
conda install anypytools

The library is also available on PyPi for installing using pip.


The simplest case:

from anypytools import AnyPyProcess
app = AnyPyProcess()
macro = [
    'load "Model.main.any"',
    'operation Main.Study.InverseDynamics',
