Courtesy: MaplesoftMaplesoft's MapleSim CAD Toolbox is designed to allow engineers to understand and improve their mechanical designs by bringing their computer-aided design (CAD) assemblies into the MapleSim modeling and simulation platform. The MapleSim CAD Toolbox imports CAD models directly into MapleSim, recreating the model components and preserving their kinetic and kinematic properties as well as the spatial relationships between components. It also offers feature detection, which allows users to add new coordinates at points of interest. It can also share coordinate frames between separate bodies, which is designed to help ensure the bodies will be properly aligned when joined. The MapleSim CAD toolbox can handle files from virtually any CAD system through direct support for a large number of proprietary formats, including Inventor, NX and Solidworks. The models can be shared with other MapleSim users or online using the MapleSim Server without requiring that the end user have access to the original CAD system or CAD files.
