Hi all,

 i have a problem with the equation generation in MapleSim, when using spring/damper elements in a Multibody-System. As an example, I've created a model of a mass-spring-damper system:





I wan`t use maple to solve my problem

x1[n]= ej*( Π/6) *n


When I export my MapleSim 5 results to a CSV file, I get only 6 digits, I'm looking for effects in the 1/1000 ppm or ppb region, I'm lost here

The global Settings window allows me to adapt epsilon abs and rel, thats nice, but nothing on the data export side.

I find it logical and usefull to have a settings on the export tab to decide on precision, and or selection of time series (usefull if one does not want all data, but just the last 100 values of a loooong run ;)

Dear MapleSim users

How can I get a display block / digital meter ? I want to display the last (or at a triggered time) the numerical value of a point/connection of a system.

I do not need the full graph of the "probe just the one value. It's mainly for debugging purpouse, to have a few check points once run.

The probes are nice but sometimes you want just a number not the full graph ;)

Does anybody have a trick ? Or could the probe plot item...

Hi simulators

Is there an easy way to give a global time frame/limits for all plots: typically I need to simulate a few seconds to get rid of all my transients, and then I would like to zoom in on the effect of interest. Now I have only found out how to reset one by one each graph via the axis properties, I have a dozen graphs per simulation 4 variables to scan over ten points each, that makes a damn lot of graphs properties click to reset, results: I need 60 sec to...


I wanted to vary my mass item in MapleSim5, to have it appear and dissapear. I noted I could us the variable "1*t" [kg] in a rigid body mass item, that worked out fine

Then I wanted to have a force variable depending on the time, but now I get a message Main.t is not defined in Main

So finally how to refer correctly to the "time" ?


Subdiary question: how to use signal blocks to generate a named variable that I use elswhere in my model for a Parameter input


I have the same problem.

   "Simulation problem: maximum number of event iterations reached (100) at t= ...."

I have a model which worked without problem in maplesim2, using a lot of event iterations. The model can only work this way, becouse its a mechanic model where the friction is function of the sliding speed, thus where the speed changes value, the friction coefficient does also, and an event occurs.

I really need to know where...

What is meant by events? I have seen this error numerous times.

   "Simulation problem: maximum number of event iterations reached (100) at t= ...."

How do I model so that I can avoid them?

We have just released the MapleSim Driveline Component Library. Built with the involvement of several transmission manufacturers, this MapleSim add-on covers all stages in the powertrain, from the engine to the differential, wheels, and road loads, as well as vehicle dynamics. MapleSim and the MapleSim Driveline Component Library make it much easier for transmission manufacturers to reduce power loss through improved designs, resulting in more efficient vehicles.




I'm trying to increase the number of parameters in the maplesim optimization template (nowadays we have six parameters)


I have a problem where I need to tune a model and I have more parameters -

How can I increase the number above six?


I am a student and totally new to MapleSim. Unfortunately I have some difficulties to solve the tasks my boss is giving me. Maybe you can give me a hint. I am working with MapleSim 4 and Maple 14.

My task is to create a system of four masses, that are connected by springs and dampers that have translational and rotational properties. So far, I build the system and I was able to connect the masses with translational springs. Here my question: How can you...


How can we use  the variation of constants formula to solve the IVP


    I'm trying to get a component to perform a Fractional Derivative in MapleSim to use in a multibody simulation (as a spring-dash pot component). However, I'm stumped by trying to get the fracdiff function past the custom component code.

  • When set to series, the fractional derivative is only accurate near the estimated about point
  • When set to LaPlace, it's impossible to perform the transform...

I'm developing an application that I'd like to use elements of an array as parameters in MapleSim components - is there a way to use Maple arrays/vectors in MapleSim?


Also is there a way to open a file and read its contents (data) as the starting point (parameter set) for a MapleSim simulation?

I have a problem.

I don´t know how can i do for working with a dynamic model equation was done in maple in Maplesim?

Help me please
