Hi everyone,

I am trying to copy a 178x2 matrix into maple. the data is in a .dat file in two columns. For example the first few lines:

+2.000000E-10 +1.636232E-05

+3.017707E-05 +4.531920E-05

+6.065973E-05 +7.586885E-05

+9.096636E-05 +1.059570E-04

+1.208671E-04 +1.357189E-04

I was having trouble importing an excel sheet


  Error, (in ExcelTools:-Import) There was an error reading the Excel file

The excel sheet only had one tab visible named test1a.tabs

However it loaded fine without the range and sheetname specified

and it loaded fine using the sheet name as a number




I was wondering if anyone else experienced this or if I was doing something wrong someone could point out.


I would like to import the code from Pg 90 on in the following document into Maple. Any suggestions for doing so with minimal editing required after pasting?


Hey there!

I uploaded a solid drawing from a CAD software (like solidworks, inventor, stl files, etc) into Maple using plottools:-importplot("drawing.stl"). 

Also, I know Maple can give me the normal vector (and point of intersection) using line and intersection commands, for example.

Now, is it possible to find a point of intersection (and the normal vector at that point) of a line that crosses the uploaded CAD solid?

I guess that to accomplish that, it would be necessary to somehow "map" the solid and that's the part that I am lost.

Many thanks!



I've got an excel file and a maple file saved in the same folder and am trying to import the contents of the excel file using  the Exceltools[Import]("name of file.extension") command as given in the manual but it doesn't seem to work. I've also tried copying the entire path of the file in the argument but that doesn't seem to work either. What am I doing incorrectly?



is there a way I can use data (variables) from Maple environment in the Maplesim environment. 

I have a scirpt in maple that generates the robots joints angles and need to use them in the 3D robot built in maplesim. I know I can export/Import data, but this sounds redundant. Is there a way to simply use an input block as a source of the data in maplesim and have the variable name generated in maple used int. Similar to what Matlab/Simulink does.. 




I'm importing a STL geometry with plottools[importplot].

The result is a PLOT3D data structure. Applying "op" to the structure reveals that it is formed by POLYGONS structures.

How can I import the same STL geometry, and, instead of getting a POLYGONS structure, getting a POINTS structure?

I think it should be direct for Maple, because in the plot view configs one can select the style to be surface, contour and even point.

If the conversion has to be by hand, does someone know a not too painful method? For me it's being painful, as I'm trying a solution all the day.

I have some lengthy formulas in the maple. I don't want to waste time on rewritting them in a word document.
Is there a way to import those equations in a clean and tidy form to a word document or the mathtype program or something else! :)


I tried to import the modelica library Buildings1.6 from the modelica website and get always the error "Nothing found in the modelica library". 

Is it possible to import modelica libraries? 

Thank you very much

It's been a while since I touched Maple. Just picked it up again to do some stat work, and I'm feeling a bit out of my element having been to accustomed to things like Matl.... (I mean the software that shall not be named).

Is there a way to convert a single array/matrix into multiple arrays?


1 1
2 7
3 8
4 9
5 10
6 14
7 20

It's easy just to copy and past this as a single element within a worksheet. However, I want to get it so that it's formated like data = [[1,1],[2,7],[3,8],etc...]

Is there a way to reformat into individual elements once everything is in one large array? I'm basically copy and pasting a huge mess of cells from Excel and am looking to see if there's a simplier solution than manual data entry.

hi all

I want to plot a 2D fig by maple. my data are in an excel file and they are too much to import them one by one manually. When I copy and paste them in maple, they appear in a column... 

thank a lot for your help.


Our school is using a hosted version of Maple TA 9. We have a lot of questions in Moodle we would like to export to Maple TA. Is this possible?

Thanks in advance,


Good morning everbody,

I am currently trying to get string and numerical datas from a txt.file but I don't get how to do this.
I have done this in matlab but I would like to make it in maple.
I have read other post about the subject and try tried this command:

 fd := fopen(dataFile,READ,TEXT):
    theData:=readdata(fd,string, 3): # 3 columns


but it didn't help me.
Hi everybody,
I have a follow problem:
Maple offers generate graph (network) for example in this way:

where {{1,2},{1,3},{2,3}} is a list of edges.

In my study I need to generate a big graph (network), where list of edges is very long
(contains more than 100000 edges).
Can I import from my directory (for example C:\\Desktop\) file, contains edges.
Now I copy from txt file all list of...
