Maplesoft today announced a new release of MapleSim, the advanced system-level modeling and simulation platform.

Improvements in MapleSim 6.1 include new API commands for programmatic analysis and a new transparency option that allows engineers to add additional visual context to their models

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.

Maplesoft™ today announced a new release of MapleSim™, the advanced system-level modeling and simulation platform. With improved performance, more tools for programmatic analysis and model development, and expanded connectivity options, MapleSim 6.1 helps engineers meet and exceed their system-level requirements.

MapleSim offers a modern approach to physical modeling and simulation, dramatically reducing model development and analysis time while producing fast, high-fidelity simulations. In MapleSim 6.1, improvements to the simulation engine mean that MapleSim can produce simulations faster than ever before. In addition, the MapleSim Application Programming Interface (API), a collection of procedures for manipulating, simulating, and analyzing a MapleSim model in the Maple document environment, has been expanded to provide more 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 whenever possible. As a result, engineers can perform large numbers of computations rapidly and get results faster.

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 that allows engineers to add additional visual context to their models. 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.”

MapleSim 6.1 is available in both English and Japanese.
