I make a new parameter in MapleSim, but I don't konw why it becomes to something as shown in the above figure.

In MapleSim environment, I can see these code, but I find that I cannot edit them.

Is there a method that I can edit these codes?

Thank you.

 

I want to make the model which moves along the specific direction (translational), So I used the "prismatic joint" to give the direction that I want to enforce. However, "Prismatic joint" only offers the direction along the "X", "Y", and "Z" axes though I want to give other direction.

 

Is there any way to give the specific direction (vector) to make my model move in that way ?

hello

i have some problem when iuse the digital libray with the delay components:

i have this error: delay variable not found in dependent variable list, [`Main.TransportDelay1.x`(T)]

it seems that the delay function in the modelica language is not well treated in MapleSim . At this level:

 

equation
    y = if 0 < delayTime then if delayTime <= time then x_delayed else y0 else pre(x);
    x_delayed = integer(delay(x, delayTime));
end Modelica.Electrical.Digital.Delay.TransportDelay;

 

Thank you for your help.

 

 

Maplesim 7.0(1) installer looks for Maple 18 installation.  Will Maplesim work with Maple 2015?

If not, what is the expected date of making both products compatible?

Hello,

I have modeled a slidercrank with absolute coordinates.

I have a slight problem when I want to mesure the Euler angles with Euler angle sensors.

In fact, the angle of the crank around the z axis (gamma1) always stay betwen -pi and pi. I would have like to see the value of my angle always increases with the evolution of the time since I impose a constant torque on the crank.

How can I do to observe the Euler angles of a body (parameterized with absolute coordinates) without any limit between [-pi,pi]?

Thank you for your help.

PS: I insert my model attached

Hi! I'm having trouble with the MapleSim "Equation Extraction" template. I have an extremely simple dynamics scenario with RigidBody at a particular position in a world; when the simulation starts, the body should simply start fallin with a constant acceleration, and I'm looking to extract kinematic equations for this situation.

However, the problem I have with the extracted equations is that they contain some rotational dependent terms that I wish to avoid - a lot of sines and cosines with arguments that I actually cannot match up to any variables in the model, or when I enable quaternion representation, terms like this:

What I don't understand is what exactly these rotation terms represent. The object should be falling straight downwards, and gravitation should be applied straight downwards, and when I start the simulation it does run through, also indicating that there should be no unbound variables. I'm not sure exactly what parameters in the Modelica model do they correspond to? I did not find any such angles in the object settings. And can I ask MapleSim to generate equations without these unbound rotation variables?

Hi! I'm trying to use MapleSim 7 to simulate some very simple physical situations, however after great many hours spent at this, I'm still unable to convince MapleSim to load and run even the simplest Modelica models, like:

model Main
  Modelica.Mechanics.MultiBody.Parts.Body o(r_CM = zeros(3));
  inner .Modelica.Mechanics.MultiBody.World world;
equation
  o.frame_b.f = {0,-9.8,0};
end Main;

It will report that o and world are "unknowns" and apparently does not recongize Modelica.Mechanics.MultiBody.Parts.Body nor Modelica.Mechanics.MultiBody.World. Do I need to do some extra steps to import extra libraries or enable some non-default components?  I went through various YouTube and other tutorials and didn't find a mention of anything.

When I look at some examples, often they refer to things like Maplesoft.Multibody.World - but these are proprietary Maple packages, and I need my code to use standard Modelica. Does this mean that MapleSim cannot run generic Modelica code like this?

I also tried running e.g. https://github.com/xogeny/HarmonicMotion and some other examples, with absolutely no success either. I'm quite confused because MapleSim has a lot of advertising about Modelica support... :-(

We’ve just released a free maintenance release to MapleSim 7. This update includes improvements to MapleSim, the MapleSim Battery Library, and the MapleSim Connector for FMI. For details, see the MapleSim 7.01 update page.

From MapleSim, you can get this update from Help>Check for Updates, or download it from the update page. (If Check for Updates doesn't find anything, please try again tomorrow.)

Dear any body,

I have tried several models/documents (with diagrams) using maplesim v7 32/64bit, but the simulation can not finish and in  equation generation a message appear as follow "protype must be a sructured record type or a record, but receipt squeezed".Same mesaages also appear if I try all examples exist in maplesim. What a big problem this?

Please help me..thanks in advance

Hi everybody,

is it possible to define an homokinetic joint in MapleSim for multibody modeling? How can I do that?

 

thanks.

Hello,

Is it possible to hide the geometry linked to the center of gravity and masses in the implicit geometry and keep only the kinematic joint.

If yes, may you explain how ? For the moment, I only manage to show/hide all the element of the implicit geometry. 

I use MapleSim 6.4.

Thank you for your help.

 

Hi,

I used to use windows 32 bit, but I have 64 bit windows now. I installed the MapleSim 6.4 and Maple 18 and try to run the simulations that I created with the 32 bit windows. I have this error 'Unable to compile (rc=1), please try again, and if that fails verify your Windows compiller installation'. Could you please let me know what should I do to eliminate this problem?

Best
