The MapleSim 2016.2 family of products includes significant enhancements to toolchain connectivity, including FMI import and the ability to analyze the results from an exported MapleSim model that was simulated in another tool.
- MapleSim now supports direct import of models created in other FMI-compatible software, providing even greater cross-tool compatibility and opportunities for co-simulation.
- Models exported by FMI-compatible modeling tools, such as LMS Amesim™, Dymola®, and SimulationX® , can be easily imported into MapleSim and used like any other model or subsystem. In this way, you can immediately leverage models developed using other software while taking advantage of the advanced modeling and analysis tools of MapleSim in developing your system-level designs.
- MapleSim can act as the master, as well as the slave, in co-simulations of dynamic models involving multiple simulation tools, so you can seamlessly connect models that run in other tools into your MapleSim system-level simulation.
- Supports FMI 2.0 Model Exchange.
- The MapleSim Connector, for connectivity with Simulink®, and the MapleSim Connector for FMI, for exporting MapleSim models to other FMI-compatible tools, have been expanded to allow you to explore simulation results involving exported MapleSim models from within MapleSim, even though the simulation was done in the target tool.
- When you export a model from MapleSim and use it as part of a simulation within Simulink or an FMI-compatible tool, the results can be brought back into MapleSim’s Results Manager.
- From inside MapleSim, you can see the results, debug the simulation, plot any variable used in the model even if it was not probed, and view 3-D visualizations of the simulation as it performed in the other tool.
- MapleSim CAD Toolbox has improved Creo Parametric™ import and provides better handling of densities obtained from CAD models.
