Waterloo-based Maplesoft released the latest version of MapleSim, the system-level modeling and simulation platform. MapleSim 6.1 includes performance improvements to the simulation engine and the MapleSim API has been expanded to provide greater flexibility for model creation and analysis.

For instance, new API commands make it easier to analyze the parameters in a model programmatically. These commands can take advantage of the full processing power of the computer, automatically detecting and using all available processor cores to perform computations in parallel. As a result, engineers can perform large numbers of computations rapidly and get results faster, the company says.

Other improvements include expanded connectivity options with the new MapleSim Connector for JMAG-RT, enhanced support for Modelica, and a new transparency option for the visualization of multibody objects.

MapleSim 6.1 is fully compatible with the recently released Maple 17, so MapleSim customers can also take advantage of all the enhancements of Maple 17, including a wide variety of improvements in both the computation engine and interface.

“Advanced projects require advanced tools, and our customers appreciate the open, ‘white-box’ modeling environment of MapleSim that gives them immense control over their modeling and analysis,” says Dr. Laurent Bernardin, executive vice-president and chief scientist at Maplesoft. “MapleSim is a vital component of the toolchain for many organizations, and with the new features in MapleSim 6.1, it’s even easier for customers to perform the analyses they want and get the results they need, fast.”
