A new version of Maplesfot’s MapleSim now offers several features that are said to streamline the user experience, expand modeling scope, and strengthen connectivity with other tools.
Features include: new task panels that appear automatically as needed and then disappear, maximizing model workspace; a redesigned layout that ensures tools are readily available at the moment they are needed; and a new search bar, which provides a single point of access for searching help pages, component libraries, examples, attachments, templates, and models from the MapleSim model gallery.
MapleSim 2016 also includes an expanded multibody component library to support contact modeling, which covers a variety of surface shapes and enables engineers to quickly model contact between different objects in their model.
Meanwhile, Maplesoft has become a Dassault Systèmes SolidWorks certified solutions partner. This is a progression of the relationship between the two companies that has already enabled engineers to connect Maple and MapleSim with the Solidworks CAD and CAE program.
Integration of Solidworks with Maple gives users a seamless way to import CAD model parameters into Maple. This gives them access to Maple’s advanced analysis tools for rigorous mathematical analysis and optimization. Users can then export updated model parameters from Maple to Solidworks.
