Maplesoft 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, reducing model development and analysis time while producing fast, high-fidelity simulations. In MapleSim 6.1, improvements to the simulation engine mean MapleSim can produce simulations faster than 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 compatible with Maple 17.
