Maplesoft releases the MapleSim 6.1 system-level modeling and simulation platform with improved performance, additional tools for programmatic analysis and model development, and expanded connectivity options. MapleSim 6.1 reduces model development and analysis time while producing high-fidelity simulations. Fully compatible with Maple 17, 6.1 offers improved simulation production, connectivity options with the MapleSim Connector for JMAG-RT, enhanced support for Modelica, and a transparency option for the visualization of multibody objects to add visual context to models. The MapleSim Application Programming Interface, a collection of procedures for manipulating, simulating, and analyzing a MapleSim model in the Maple document environment, has been expanded to provide flexibility for model creation and analysis. As a result, engineers can more quickly perform large numbers of computations.
