Maplesoft announced a new release of MapleSim (6.1), with more tools for programmatic analysis and model development, and expanded connectivity options.
In the new release, improvements to the simulation engine mean that MapleSim can produce faster simulations. In addition, the MapleSim Application Programming Interface (API), a collection of procedures for manipulating, simulating, and analyzing a model in the Maple document environment, has been expanded to provide more flexibility for model creation and analysis.
Other improvements include expanded connectivity options with the new MapleSim Connector for JMAG-RT, enhanced support for Modelica, and a new transparency option for the visualization of multibody objects that allows engineers to add additional visual context to their models. MapleSim 6.1 is fully compatible with the recently released Maple 17.
The software is available in both English and Japanese.
