Faster, more flexible modelling with MapleSim 6.1

Maplesoft is announcing a new release of MapleSim, the advanced system-level modelling and simulation platform. With improved performance, more tools for programmatic analysis and model development and expanded connectivity options, MapleSim 6.1 helps engineers meet and exceed their system-level requirements.

Faster, more flexible modelling with MapleSim 6.1

MapleSim 6.1, available from Adept Scientific, offers a modern approach to physical modelling and simulation, reducing model development and analysis time while producing fast, high-fidelity simulations. In MapleSim 6.1, improvements to the simulation engine mean that MapleSim can produce simulations faster than ever before.

The MapleSim Application Programming Interface (API), a collection of procedures for manipulating, simulating and analysing a MapleSim model in the Maple document environment, has been expanded to provide more flexibility for model creation and analysis.

For example, new API commands make it easier to analyse the parameters in a model programmatically, so they can take advantage of the full processing power of the computer, automatically detecting and using all available processor cores to perform computations in parallel whenever possible. As a result, engineers can perform large numbers of computations rapidly and get results faster.

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 visualisation 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, so MapleSim customers can also take advantage of all the enhancements of Maple 17, including a wide variety of improvements in both the computation engine and interface.

Dr Laurent Bernardin, Executive Vice-President and Chief Scientist at Maplesoft, says: "Advanced projects require advanced tools, and our customers appreciate the open, "white-box' modelling environment of MapleSim that gives them immense control over their modelling and analysis."

Mike Pisapia, Managing Director of Adept Scientific, adds: "MapleSim is a vital component of the toolchain for many organisations, and with the new features in MapleSim 6.1, it's even easier for customers to perform the analyses they want and get the results they need, fast. We're convinced that this latest release makes MapleSim a must-have software resource for every engineer needing state-of-the-art physical modelling capability."

The Maplesoft product range is supplied and supported by Adept Scientific in the UK, Ireland, Scandinavia and the Nordic countries. For more information about MapleSim 6.1 please go to
