Work Smart, Not Hard with Automation

Don’t waste time doing the same process over and over. Create scripts to automate repetitive tasks, and run your favorite scripts directly from the Grapher ribbon. Grapher can be called from any automation-compatible programming languages such as C++, Python, or Perl. Grapher also ships with Scripter, a built-in Visual Basic compatible scripting tool. Better yet, use the script recorder to transform actions performed in Grapher into a script.

Save time with automation, and save even more time by reviewing the extensive set of sample scripts in the Grapher Automation Knowledge Base!
