I'm new to Maplesim and Maple. I've modeled a planar slider-crank mechanism in Maplesim and it works.

Now I want to extract the equations of motion (DAE) for further analysis. From 'Template' --> 'Worksheet', I used A:-GetEquations() to try to get the DAE. However, the equations are too long and not shown. Moreover, I don't know what coordinates Maplesim used to generated those 'unseen' equations. Here are the equations that can be hand-derived:

where I and m represent inertia and mass respectively. Theta, beta and s are the chosen generalized coordiantes, s_theta is sin(theta), c_theta is cos(theta)s_beta is sin(beta), c_beta is cos(beta). Rx and Ry are lagrange multipliers representing the reaction force in the pin between the crank and the connecting rod.

How can I generate such DAEs using Maplesim? Thank you very much.
