@nm  Ok what does the \\do? It works for reading in the .mpl.

I have now tried this with a couple of other procedures that worked but reading them in, then they don't work. Any ideas on that?

Will get back to it tomorrow night.


@Markiyan Hirnyk Hi. I predomately use a CAD system. Maple is my home hobby to learn more maths out of interest. It would take many months of wor for me to write such code. Here is a link to such an add on package for solidworks.


I was following a blog earlier this year on the Dzhanibekov Effect where some of the paths traced out can be described by the intersection of a sphere with an ellipse apparently best parameterised by Eulers equation of motion. 


 I have also seen an application of Stewart Gough platforms been used for 5 axes machining.

Here is a post a placed a couple of months ago here for the reverse kinematics of such a platform.


@Markiyan Hirnyk  How about the orientation of the end effector of a robot welding or cutting something. And, art for art's sake.


Maple also do a home user licence. In the UK it is about £180.


Basicially you have an Euler rotation matrix. You decide the  the angles of rotation along with the x,y,z displacements. Then the equations calculate the positions of the platform corners in terms of the Global X,Y,Z.


This paper will show you how to setup the equations.  Looks like you are calculating the leg length. I.e. the reverse kinematics. Describe you displacements in x,y,z and alpha,beta, gamma. Let me know how you get on with it.


Edit:- I had uploaded the incorrect pdf


@DSkoog  Oh Good. Where/How can i fnd out about all the little tweeks and fixes?

@DSkoog Hi, Any display improvements in the new release?

@erik10 I have been looking at getting a new Pc and High Res. monitor. I found this   It is claimed it works for other apps too. I haven't tried it yet. Maybe some of you can see if it is useful for Maple and if so share how to impliment it.

@Kitonum, Carl.  I get when I use "ra"   "Warning, expecting only range variable x in expression 1/ra to be plotted but found name ra" and the graph is empty. Replace with x and it's fine. Why? I would have naturally used 1/ra,ra=0..1 or 1/x, x=0..1 or am I missing something here?


This page comes up ok for me. I did tyr thr demo version a few months age. Didn't link it into Maple though. It would be great if Maple built if its features.

@tomleslie  I read that earlier about 7 hours ago. It appeared in the Recent Post section. Then vanished a few hours later. Some promlem with the rho graph I think.

Upload yout work sheet. Otherwise you are stuck with what is is in the help. If you look in the questions I posted this earlier this year there is a series of posts on "animate". I usually post a worksheet when I have technical questions.

Basically with a worksheet there are many experts here who can help you.

@Preben Alsholm Thank you.

@DSkoog  Thank you for your clarification.

In the help the points you explain don't seem to be high lighted. I understant the prediciment on the decisions you faced. Really the help pages need to clarify these points.

So thaking the situation of "Save As" on a Workbook file- there are many reasons. My one was, need to try something different but don't want to loose what I have. So I have a series of questions.

1) Are the contained files copied to the new document?

2) Where are these contained documents actually being stored? Somewhere in help it mentions a "Shared folder" for certain file types. What shared folder?

3) What does the pretty coloured "0" in the tab bar represent? I notice it is a diffferent colour for each subsequent workbook file opened.

4) Is there any way of revision/version managing Maple files? I know this is not specifically a workbook file question.

Overall the Workbook is a great asset.
