Maplesoft has released its new high-performance multi-domain modelling and simulation tool, following months of pilot testing and feedback from 1,500 companies in 85 countries.

With the cutting edge physical modelling techniques in MapleSim, the time and cost spent creating models is drastically reduced. Users can simply create the system diagram on the screen, in the same way they would draw it on paper. The model equations are then generated automatically.

MapleSim applies symbolic preprocessing techniques to these model equations, creating simplified and highly efficient models. Code generated from these simplified models can be exported to real-time and other applications. Because of the symbolic preprocessing, this code runs ten to one hundred times faster for complex models.

MapleSim contains powerful tools for model design and analysis, including dynamic analysis, control design, and optimisation. MapleSim even allows users to easily create custom components and live design documentation.
