Advanced projects require advanced tools for meeting and exceeding system-level requirements. By incorporating the most recent progress in engineering design technology, MapleSim offers a modern approach to physical modeling and simulation. It dramatically reduces model development and analysis time while producing fast, high-fidelity simulations.

MapleSim is a “white-box” Modelica® platform, giving you complete flexibility and openness for complex multidomain models. With MapleSim, you create, analyze, and run system-level models in a fraction of the time it takes with other tools.


Maintain full control with “white-box” modeling and analysis

MapleSim, coupled with Maple™, is a completely open environment, meaning that you are never restricted to built-in components or analyses. With its complete programming and analysis environment, you can run simulations, customize analyses or script entirely new ones, perform optimizations, develop advanced symbolic control laws, and investigate models in ways not possible with other tools. You can even create custom components right from their unsimplified governing equations – our solution does all the work to incorporate them into your model.


Create custom components directly from their equations


Easily script custom analyses


Take advantage of the world’s most powerful symbolic and numeric math engine


View and manipulate system-level equations


Get the fastest auto-generated code for real-time and optimization

Whether you are running 100,000 simulations during an optimization or executing in real-time for hardware-and software-in-the-loop testing, your model code must be fast. MapleSim produces the fastest auto-generated model code, and the code is completely royalty-free.  MapleSim’s fast model code can be exported as S-functions, making MapleSim the best physical modeling solution for Simulink®.


No more hand-coding: save time and eliminate errors with automatic code generation for custom components


Pass your work down the toolchain: provide downstream engineers with fast and accurate exported models, including S-functions, C code, FMI, and more


Give yourself a head-start on projects with a powerful Modelica platform

MapleSim is based on the open-standard Modelica modeling language, so you can  leverage the growing collection of industry-tested Modelica components in your own projects. But MapleSim is more than just Modelica – it’s an entire platform for modeling, simulation, and analysis, where Modelica provides the component and model description.


Open, object-oriented system-level modeling language


Custom components that automatically generate corresponding Modelica code


Flexible Modelica multidomain framework
