SOFA, Simulation Open-Framework Architecture


Documentation Forum Gitter Contact

Introduction

SOFA is an open source framework primarily targeted at real-time simulation, with an emphasis on medical simulation.
It is mainly intended for the research community to help foster newer algorithms, but can also be used as an efficient prototyping tool.
SOFA's advanced software architecture allows:
(1) the creation of complex and evolving simulations by combining new algorithms with existing algorithms;
(2) the modification of key parameters of the simulation such as deformable behavior, surface representation, solvers, constraints, collision algorithm, etc. by simply editing an XML file;
(3) the synthesis of complex models from simpler ones using a scene-graph description;
(4) the efficient simulation of the dynamics of interacting objects using abstract equation solvers; and
(5) the comparison of various algorithms available in SOFA.
