Maplesoft releases MapleSim 4
Latest versions provide advanced technology for design, modeling and high-performance simulation.
MapleSim is a drag-and-drop physical modeling tool that applies advanced symbolic computation techniques to produce high-performance simulation models of multi-domain systems.
Maplesoft has released MapleSim 4, the physical modeling and simulation tool, that features a new 3-D construction feature to help develop multibody models. MapleSim provides realistic feedback of multibody systems by dynamically rendering the model as it is built. The 3-D construction environment lets engineers add and manipulate multibody components directly in the 3-D workspace.
Other new features include flexible probe management tools, including an easy way to add new probes to previous simulation results without having to rerun the simulation; a new semi-stiff solver that provides good results for stiff systems without the overhead formulation costs of a true stiff solver, and new and enhanced analysis tools, including tools for working with multibody equations.
MapleSim is built on a foundation of symbolic computation technology, which manages the complex mathematics involved in the development of engineering system models. At its core is Maple, the technical computing software that contains an advanced symbolic computation engine, numeric solvers and a technical document interface.
The company also released Maple 14, which contains increased math capabilities for engineering applications, including new control system design tools, linearization tools and new solvers that allow engineers to apply advanced techniques to control design problems.
