MapleSim is a natural environment for modeling multidomain systems that
supports the rapid creation and testing of initial concepts so engineers can
try out more ideas in less time, identify and prevent unexpected interactions
between different domains, and generate computationally efficient models. MapleSim
is used across a wide variety of applications and industries, including the
creation of physics-based Digital Twins. Because Digital
Twins in MapleSim do not require test data to predict behavior, they can be
used for conceptual design as well as validating product
performance, design changes, and diagnostics. The latest release provides new
and improved model development and analysis tools, expands modeling scope,
introduces new deployment options, and strengthens toolchain connectivity.
MapleSim 2017 includes significant additions to the collection of built-in interactive model analysis tools. Choosing the correct initial values for a model is an extremely important and often extremely difficult task, and the new Initialization Diagnostics App provides insight into the initialization process to help engineers determine how the initial values are computed and what actions are needed to adjust them. The new Modal Analysis App helps engineers explore and understand the natural vibration modes of their mechanism, so they can identify which modes will have the biggest impact on the design and determine how to reduce the vibration in the final product.
Other improvements include over 100 new components, including expansions to the Electrical and Magnetic libraries. MapleSim 2017 also provides a new Modelica® code editor that makes it easier to create Modelica-based custom components, new options that simplify the creation of custom analysis tools, and enhanced support for connectivity with other modeling tools through FMI export. The MapleSim family of products now also includes MapleSim Explorer, a cost-effective deployment solution that enables organizations to make the knowledge embedded in their MapleSim models available to more people.
In addition, the new MapleSim 2017 release includes a new add-on component library. The MapleSim Heat Transfer Library from CYBERNET provides a comprehensive view into the heat transfer effects present in a model, enabling engineers to refine their design to improve performance and avoid overheating. The MapleSim Heat Transfer Library from CYBERNET is useful for any situation where heat generation is a concern, especially when there are moving boundaries between heat generating components, such as motors, batteries, printers, and manufacturing equipment.
“Maplesoft is committed to helping companies translate their engineering expertise into a system-level modeling tool, so they can truly reap the rewards that come from using this approach,” says Dr. Laurent Bernardin, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Scientist at Maplesoft. “MapleSim helps companies use Digital Twins and other virtual prototypes to get key insight along the entire engineering design process. It also helps organizations capture, deepen, preserve, and leverage their engineering knowledge, so they avoid common pitfalls and experience success in their modeling projects.”
MapleSim is available in English, Japanese, and French.

Engineers - Stop Doing Algebra by Hand!
Manual equation manipulation is labor intensive, time consuming, and notoriously prone to error. Simply put, doing algebra by hand is expensive. When faced with expensive processes, engineers find ways to mechanize and cut costs. Math should be no different. Computer algebra systems mechanize equation manipulation, reducing the need for human involvement and hence eliminate a source of risk. Pioneered originally by mathematicians and physicists, they are now more capable than ever to address a full range of engineering problems. Read this whitepaper to understand the benefits of computer algebra systems in the context of various engineering domains, to see how symbolic computation offers simplified solutions for many engineering tasks, and to learn how to use calculation management software to reduce the overall amount of errors commonly associated with working by hand.
Calculation Management Done Right
In the marketplace of technical products, growing competition has required faster design cycles and iterations in almost every sector. Companies take great steps to invest in their most important assets - namely, the products they deliver. These products are comprised of various designs, techniques, and intellectual property, all of which are managed across an organization with careful thought and attention. There’s something fundamental to these company assets which is often overlooked, and responsible for the aches and pains that most engineers face on a regular basis. This essential company asset is known as calculation management.
