MapleSim 2016 provides numerous enhancements, both large and small, to provide a smoother, more streamlined user experience.
These improvements include:
The built-in Multibody component library has been extended to include support for contact modeling. Over 15 new components allow you to quickly model contact between different objects in your model. Components cover a variety of surface shapes, including torus, sphere, and cylinder, allowing you to take into account the forces and torques at the contact points caused by penetration and friction.
MapleSim 2016 further expands the extensive collection of solver options in MapleSim that allow you to control the behavior of the simulation solvers.
The MapleSim Pneumatics Library from Modelon lets you take advantage of the powerful, industry-tested component library from Modelon in your system-level designs. This library can be used in the modeling and simulation of pneumatic systems for system design, component sizing, and control design, with applications in construction equipment, machine design, commercial vehicle design, and more.
