The new release also includes significant enhancements to toolchain connectivity. In addition to exporting models to the internationally recognized FMI standard, MapleSimnow also supports direct import of models created in other FMI-compatible software, for both model exchange and co-simulation. Models exported by FMI-compatible modeling tools, such as LMS Imagine.Lab Amesim™ or Dymola®, can be easily imported into MapleSim and used like any other model or subsystem. In this way, engineers can immediately leverage models developed using other software while taking advantage of the advanced modeling and analysis tools of MapleSim when developing their system-level designs. For dynamic models involving multiple simulation tools, MapleSim now allows engineers to seamlessly connect models that run in other tools into their MapleSim system-level simulations.
“Maplesoft is committed to supporting open standards that enable our customers to avoid having to re-invent the wheel, whether that means recreating a model from scratch or redeveloping component libraries that have already been written for another tool,” says Dr. Laurent Bernardin, Executive Vice President and Chief Scientist at Maplesoft. “With full support of the FMI standard , as well as its foundation in Modelica®, MapleSim now allows engineers to take advantage of state-of-the-art engineering technology in their design work without being limited by proprietary tools.”
Enhancements to the MapleSim family of products also include expanded analysis tools for the MapleSim Battery Library and improved import facilities for the MapleSim CAD Toolbox. In addition, the MapleSim Connector for connectivity with Simulink®, and the MapleSim Connector for FMI for exporting MapleSim models to other FMI-compatible tools, have been expanded to allow engineers to explore simulation results involving exported MapleSim models from within MapleSim, even though the simulation was done in the target tool.
MapleSim is available in English, Japanese, and French.

Industry 4.0 and the Power of the Digital Twin
The world of industrial automation is undergoing a major transformation to the Next Industrial Revolution, or Industry 4.0. Manufacturers can no longer afford the “build it and tweak it” approach that has long characterized many design projects. Instead, they must take a more systems-design approach by implementing rigorous systems-design processes that accommodate the complexities of developing multi-disciplinary systems. High-fidelity virtual prototypes, or Digital Twins, are at the core of this development process. Read this whitepaper to learn how early adopters are already benefiting from the power of the Digital Twin as part of their Industry 4.0 strategy.
