Does anybody hasa suggest how to quickly get the "initial conditons" of a (control) loop in MapleSim ?

When I'm debugging loops in MaplSim I'm missing a way to get the inital conditions and then to be able to see the (first) numerical values in each probe or on the "wires/ports".

Does something like this exit, or is it to be pushed on the "suggestion" list.

This applies also to PDE resolutions, the "get Initial Condition" run is a good trick to first check your model before running it.


I want to mae a single output block custom for a signal generator , my function is a couple of pages of Maple calcuations, but easy to put inside a proc(time) ... end proc how to generate this. Your Real block does not allow me to type all y code. Making it from scratch from your embedded functions  with connections lines is possible, but a hell of a work, while its all there in Maple


thanks in advance




Is there a way to change globally all time horizontal axis limits in one go ? I have to define each time each of my 12 probe signals, parameter by parameter, axis by axis, even if I'm using the same values.

Im missing in the right "parameter plot" window a way to define globally the time interval for all plots, and not necesarily the time interval of the full simulations, in particular to leave the system stabilise and get rid of the initial peaks and oscillations.

How do I complete the following by using row reduction rules.

3x            -z=-1

4x     -y    -2z =-5

2x +  7y  + 9z = 0

I installed Maple 13 and Maplesim 2.0 in a brand new computer I ran the robot simulation successfully but as soon as I ran windows updates and the rest of applications it not longer  work. it just gives me a blank windows with the tool bars.

Does anyone encounter this problem? How do you solved it.

I updated my video card with the latest drivers; and follow the instructions in  regards to installing the latest Java

Hi there,

I am basically using MapleSim to obtain the equations of motion for mechanical systems and copy

pasting them into a separate Maple document and solvng them numerically. I could work with simple pendulum

and a two link manipulator. But in the case of a four bar mechansism since the system is a closed chain the

number of unknowns ended up being more than the number of equations. In this case, the joint reaction forces

came into play as unknowns. I know MapleSim intelligently does index reduction and solves these equations. But

hello friends

please help me.

I already have an spline equation in maple13. I want use this equation as a signal block mathematical funtion. But maplesim only have standard funtion blocks in this pallet :

Signal Block\Mathematical\Functions





when Maplesim derives the equations from an electrical circuit,  it renames components in a way that makes the equations bloated/unreadable. Simple example: a resistor R1 becomes `R1.R`, which is awkward for further use. Is there a global switch to change this ?

When a user drags and drops a component from the pallette, a copy of the component is copied into the subsystem library located in the lower right of the screen.  This is handy if used again so that the user does not have to drill down into the pallettes repeatedly.  But, after a while the copies accumulate in the subsystems library, and it would be nice to selectively delete them if the user knows they will not be used again.  I have not found any way to delete the built in components copyied into the subsystem library.  I suppose it is childishly simple, but the operat

Modelica is an open language for (lumped parameter) modeling and simulation and is generating a growing following, especially in Europe. Modelica is also at the heart of simulation tools like MapleSim. We are generally not making a big deal of that fact and as a result we have a regular stream of actual and potential customers asking us why we are not more vocal about our use of Modelica. Do we not believe in open...

Hi. I am the Marketing Communications Manager at Maplesoft. This is the first piece of writing where you get to know who I am, but many of you have probably already read a lot of what I’ve written. I am responsible for the promotion of Maplesoft products. It’s my job to take what the really smart Maplesoft employees create and turn it into something engaging (and typically say all I need to say in 3 paragraphs or less, or in the case of subject lines, 49 characters or less). Within every piece of highly technical math-filled piece of writing is a gem of a story waiting to be brought out. I try (sometimes successfully, I hope) to bring out these stories. Every time you’ve read our newsletter “The Maple Reporter,” an email, or a letter from Maplesoft, you’ve read my work. My goal is for people to read what I write and say “I want that!” or “how do I do that?”

There is a new template for MapleSim that allows you to import your Simulink models into Maple.  Once imported, you can quickly create a custom component that can be used in MapleSim.

Requires BlockImporter and MATLAB/Simulink, version 2007b or later, to execute.

Hi, this is the first time I use this forum. Please let me know if my questions already have been gone throw. Today I have two simple questions: 1.       How to conduct polynomial division in a fast, easy and clickable way?


I know this is probably a simple question, but how do I go about creating subsystems?  I highlight the components I want and right-click, but I don't get the option to create a subsystem.  Any help would be appreciated.
