Simulation software: Maple and MapleSim new releases announced

Maplesoft announced new releases of its core products: MapleSim 2 introduces 3D visualization and animation tools, while Maple 13 provides both enhanced tools and new 3D plotting facilities.


Waterloo, Canada— Maplesoft has released new generations of its core products: MapleSim, the high-performance, multi-domain modeling and simulation tool, and Maple, the technical computing software for engineers, mathematicians, and scientists. These products are based on Maplesoft’s core technologies, which include an advanced symbolic computation engine and physical modeling techniques.

MapleSim 2 combines a physical modeling environment with symbolic techniques “to drastically reduce the time and effort required to create highly efficient models,” according to the company. The new release introduces 3D visualization and animation tools that transform multibody models into realistic animations, and provides tools for managing results from multiple simulations.

Maple 13 provides enhanced tools, as well as a completely new 3D plotting facilities and leading-edge solvers. The Mapel Portal for Engineers offers a convenient starting point for engineering calculations, with point-and-click access to control systems analysis tools, and expanded CAD connectivity that adds NX to the list of supported CAD systems. New plotting facilities include extensive annotation tools and fly-through animations, making 3D plots more meaningful and easier to interpret.
Maple 13’s solvers include “revolutionary techniques for finding solutions to differential equations that are beyond the scope of standard methods,” according to Jim Cooper, president and CEO of Maplesoft . “Ever-increasing system complexities make the task of model development much more difficult and time consuming. The combination of the two core Maplesoft technologies presents an opportunity to modernize the process and make significant savings in cost and time.”
