dc.description.abstract DARTS is a rigid/flexible multibody dynamics toolkit for themodeling and simulation of aerospace and robotic vehicles forengineering applications. In this paper we describe an on-line,browser-based environment using Jupyter notebooks to supporttraining needs for the DARTS software. The suite of curated tutorial notebooks is organized into different topic areas, and intomultiple themes within each topic area. The notebooks within atheme use a progression of examples for users to expand theirunderstanding of the software. The topic areas include one onthe DARTS multibody dynamics software and another one on thetheory underlying the multibody dynamics formulation. We alsodescribe a number of Jupyter extensions that were used - andsome developed in house - to enhance the notebook interface foruse with the dynamics simulation software. One significant extension we implemented allows the embedding of live 3D visualizations within simulation notebooks.
