MapleSim 2016 is here!

MapleSim 2016 provides variety of improvements to streamline the user experience, expand modeling scope, and enhance connectivity with other tools. Here are some highlights:

  • Collapsible task panes provide a larger model workspace, so you can see more of your model at once.
  • Improved layout ensures the tools you need for your current task are available at your fingertips.
  • The expanded Multibody component library now supports contact modeling.
  • A new add-on library, the MapleSim Pneumatics Library from Modelon, supports the modeling and simulation of pneumatic systems.
  • The MapleSim CAD Toolbox has been extended to support the latest versions of Inventor®, NX®, SOLIDWORKS®, CATIA® V5, Solid Edge®, PTC® Creo Parametric™, and more.
  • The MapleSim Connector, which provides connectivity to Simulink®, now supports single precision export of S-functions so you can run your MapleSim models on hardware that only supports single precision.

See What’s New in MapleSim 2016 for more information about these and other improvements.

You, I, and others like us, are the beneficiaries of decades of software evolution.

From its genesis as a research project at the University of Waterloo in the early 80s, Maple has continually evolved to meet the challenges of technical computing.

A new Maple e-book, Multivariate Calculus Study Guide, is now available. Part of the Clickable Calculus collection of interactive Maple e-books, this guide takes full advantage of Maple’s Clickable Math approach. It has over 600 worked examples, the vast majority of which are solved using interactive, Clickable Math techniques. 

Deisgned to help students taking this course, instructors may also find this e-book useful as a guide to using Clickable Math to teach Multivariate Calculus.

See Multivariate Calculus Study Guide for more information.

As the year draws to a close, we start looking forward to a new year and a new release of Maple. With every new release comes many new features and updates to explore.

We are looking for several new beta testers with a good working knowledge of Maple; We need your input, your ideas, and your experience with our products to help us improve the software and get it ready for general release.

There are many benefits to becoming a beta tester:

  • You’ll get to use the new software before anyone else does.
  • You’ll help us make our software better in ways that work for you.
  • Your suggestions could determine the future direction of the software.
  • You’ll get feedback right from the development team.

If you are interested in becoming a beta tester for the next version of Maple, please email: beta (at) maplesoft.com for more information.

We have just released a major update to MapleSim 2015. MapleSim 2015.2 provides a variety of enhancements that make it even easier to create, simulate, and analyze your multidomain, system-level models, including:

  • Advanced diagnostic tools that help you identify the source of problems in your models and simulations, and improve their efficiency and robustness
  • Over 50 new components in the magnetic, thermal, electrical, and signal block libraries
  • A new connections manager that makes it easier to keep track of connections and port variables
  • And more! See What’s New in MapleSim 2015.2 for more information about these and other improvements in MapleSim.

 

We have also updated and expanded the MapleSim 2015 family of products:

  • The new MapleSim CAD Toolbox, which is available as a separate product, helps engineers understand and improve their mechanical designs by making it easy to import CAD models directly into MapleSim and understand how they behave as part of a larger system.
  • MapleSim Connector, for connectivity with Simulink®, and the MapleSim Connector for FMI both generate code that provides more detailed run-time error reporting to assist in trouble-shooting on the target platform
  • Updates to the specialized component libraries MapleSim Battery LibraryMapleSim Driveline Library, and MapleSim Tire Library provide improved modeling power and scope

 

This update is being distributed through the automatic Check for Updates system, and is also available from our website. See MapleSim 2015.2  for details on obtaining this update. This new MapleSim release is available immediately on Windows and Linux, with a Mac version following in the coming days.

We are looking for enthusiastic Maple users to become Maple Ambassadors, to inspire and educate others about the benefits that Maple brings to education.

 

As an Ambassador, you will have the opportunity to influence the development of Maple through regular meetings with Maplesoft developers, get advance news of upcoming features and products, get assistance with Maple events on your campus, and more. In return, we ask that you do what you are probably already doing – sharing your experiences with Maple, answer questions on forums (like this one!), sharing your Maple applications, providing us with feedback, etc.

 

You can find more information and an application form at Maple Ambassador Program. We’re looking forward to hearing from you!

We are happy to announce that Maple T.A. now supports the Learning Tools Interoperability® (LTI) standard, which means that Maple T.A. can be easily integrated with course management systems that support LTI. Maplesoft officially supports LTI connectivity with Canvas, Blackboard Learn™, Brightspace™, Moodle™, and Sakai.

Using the LTI standard, you can integrate Maple T.A. directly into your existing course management or learning management platforms. This allows for single-sign on in one central location and Maple T.A. assignment delivery and grade pushing right inside of your existing solutions.

If you would like to use the LTI connectivity feature, please contact Maplesoft Technical Support at support@maplesoft.com. They will provide the instructions and files you need to set up your connection, and answer any questions you may have about how the integration works on your platform.

Math powers the world. From tracking the spread of an epidemic to designing a new rocket engine, mathematical equations allow us to understand a challenge and formulate an approach to solving it. Everywhere around us, math is ubiquitous; an equation determines how your thermostat controls your home furnace; a mathematical algorithm is used to encode the signal from your cell phone. More than ever, we rely on mathematics to make our lives better. And continually, our mathematical techniques get more refined as we solve more and more complex problems.
