Does PyDyna usage require any Ansys or LS-Dyna licenses?

If we use PyDyna, does it take LS-Dyna or ansys license?

This link :
gives the following info:

PyDYNA makes no commercial claim over Ansys whatsoever. This library extends the functionality of Ansys LS-DYNA by adding a Python interface to LS-DYNA without changing the core behavior or license of the original software. The use of the interactive control of PyDYNA requires a legally licensed local copy of LS-DYNA.

Thank you.

    Yes you need a license per the description. There is no additional license required to us the PyDYNA interface to connect to it, but you do need a license for the core ANSYS product.
