Display the kinematic joints
http://www.mapleprimes.com/questions/202261-Display-The-Kinematic-Joints?ref=Feed:MaplePrimes:Tagged With MapleSim
<p>Hello,</p>
<p>I have a little question about the display of the kinematic joints which are usually in red.</p>
<p>I didn't know why the kinematic joints have disappeared and I don't know how to display them again.</p>
<p>Do you have an idea about the button I have to use so as to display the kinematic joints.</p>
<p>Thanks for your help.</p><p>Hello,</p>

http://www.mapleprimes.com/questions/202249-Using-MapleSim-To-Determine-The-Initial?ref=Feed:MaplePrimes:Tagged With MapleSim
<p>Hello,</p>
<p>I have a question concerning the initial conditions.</p>
<p>One interest of MapleSim is to enable to model a multibody systems with different kinds of coordinates : namely relative and absolute coordinates.</p>
<p>For a complex system, it seems to me that the determination of the initial position is not an easy task.</p>
<p>Consequently, I wonder if it is possible to determine the initial positions for the system in absolute coordinates thanks to the knowledge of the initials positions in relative coordinates.</p>
<p>In other words, I have already determined the initial positions of my system in relative coordinates but as I would like to simulate my system with absolute coordinates. I wonder if I can have a process to deduct the initial positions for the absolute coordinates for the initial positions in relative coordinates.</p>

<p>Hello,</p>
<p>In my model, it seems that I have parameters which are not evaluated.</p>
<p>Indeed, I'm not sure that the parameters defined with relations as you can see in the printscreen are evaluated.</p>
<p><img src="/view.aspx?sf=202210_question/parameter_not_evaluated.png" alt="" width="738" height="417"></p>
<p> </p>
<p>One point which helps me to debug my model is to follow the evaluation of the construction of my model with the 3D visualization.</p>
<p>Questions :<br>1) How can I do to be sure that my parameters are evaluated ?</p>
<p>2) Is it possible to launch the update of the 3D visualization even if I still have some bugs in my model ?</p>

<p>Hello, </p>
<p>During the simulation of my model, I received this bug:</p>
<p>"cannot resolve function `Main.'Typesetting:-mambiguous'`; there is no function `'Typesetting:-mambiguous'` visible in model `Main`"</p>
<p>Have you a idea of the problem ?</p>

<p>Hi,</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I want to calculate a new position (X,Y,Z) for a cartesian model with 3 points (dX,dY,dZ) but I got a problem, my point is a parameters, so I can't change it in the simulation in real time with a Input signal on the components. Does It exist a solution for convert a parameters to a variable to get a Input signal?</p>
<p>Exemple of my calcul:</p>
<p>eq:= [x(t)= dx+sin(dy/dz), y(t)=dy+20,z(t)=dz]</p>
<p> </p>

<p>Hello,</p>
<p>In my model, in order to better follow a analytical study, i would like to make some calculations with my paramters.</p>
<p>For example, I have defined :</p>
<p>xa=1</p>
<p>ya=2</p>
<p>R=sqrt(xa²+ya²)</p>
<p>I would define R in the parameters area so as to use it for some definitions in the definition of body (i use especially maplesim for multibody systems.)</p>
<p>How is it possible to define parameters thanks to relations ?</p><p>Hello,</p>

<p>Hi All. Hope all is well.</p>

<p>now we want to approximate a function, asy f(t), in this interval with following form:</p>
