AGXUnity - AGX Dynamics Unity 3D plugin

Unity 3D bindings for AGX Dynamics from Algoryx Simulation AB

AGX Dynamics is a professional multi-purpose physics engine for simulators, Virtual Reality (VR), engineering, large scale granular simulations and more. AGX is being utilized in hundreds of training simulators and helps engineers design and evaluate new mechanical systems in Algoryx Momentum.

Installation

Unity has to be started with AGX environment variables. For example (command prompt):


C:\>"Program Files\Algoryx\agx-2.21.0.0\setup_env.bat"

Visual Studio version range:
    [15.0, 16.0)
Visual Studio installation path:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Professional
vcvarsall.bat used:
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Professional\VC\Auxiliary\Build\vcvarsall.bat"

**********************************************************************
** Visual Studio 2017 Developer Command Prompt v15.5.1
** Copyright (c) 2017 Microsoft Corporation
**********************************************************************
[vcvarsall.bat] Environment initialized for: 'x64'

Using Python interpreter C:\Program Files\Python35\python.exe

C:\>"Program Files\Unity\Editor\Unity.exe"

Without the AGX environment, Unity could crash or output error: DllNotFoundException: agxDotNetRuntime.dll

From package

You can find packages in Releases.

  1. Drag and drop AGXUnity-x.y.unitypackage into the Assets folder in Unity.
  2. Copy agxDotNet.dll (<agx_dynamics_install_dir>/bin/x64/agxDotNet.dll) into AGXUnity plugins folder (Assets/AGXUnity/Plugins/x86_64).

From source

  1. git clone https://github.com/Algoryx/AGXUnity.git in the Assets folder of your Unity project.
  2. Copy agxDotNet.dll (<agx_dynamics_install_dir>/bin/x64/agxDotNet.dll) into AGXUnity plugins folder (Assets/AGXUnity/Plugins/x86_64).

Requirements

  • AGX Dynamics 2.20.0.0 (64-bit) or later.
  • Unity 3D 2017.1.1 (64-bit) or later. Could work in earlier version but hasn’t been tested.
  • Valid AGX Dynamics license. Contact us for more information.

Binary distribution

To distribute an Unity3D application together with AGX Dynamics, you need to collect the required runtime files from your AGX installation. These files must match the version of AGX used when building the Unity3D application.

Below is a list of required files/directories which come from the /bin/x64/ directory. These files should be placed in the top directory together with your Unity exe-file. In version 2.22.1.0 and later, AGX Dynamics comes with a python script that will copy the required runtime files to a named (non-existing) directory: \data\python\utilities\copy_runtimes.py
