On maplesim how plot the transfer funtion vs frequency for the public domain example tuned mass dumper?

I am working on modelling a helicopter blade. Maplesim's Flexible Beam model cannot handle composite material cross section and pre-twist angle. I need to build a custom component based on Hodges's beam model. When I use the Custom Component template, add port and choose port type, there is no "frame" type, which is needed to connect other multibody components. Is it possible to create custom multibody component? If so, how can I make it? Thanks! 

Hi, I am a student and a recent new MapleSim user. I downloaded the MapleSim Wind Turbine Vibrations model from the Model Gallery ( 

I do not understand the model diagram, and find it difficult to visualize the way all the components work. Also, how can I change the mass moment of inertia of each blade? 

This is my first question, apologies if it sounds silly. Thank you :)

where i can found oscilloscope icon for cisuit simulation?thanks

why the current luca_amplificatore_retroazione.msimand voltage is egual to zero?


I am a college student that is aspiring to become a theoretical theorist. I have postulates that are not in mathematical form yet, and I would like to use a program that can help with this process. I am new to the usage of Maple products, and I have questions. Is it possible to use Maple in this way, before getting to the difficult calculus steps? Can MapleSim or Maple Physics, perform simulations, or models of physics calculations?

Thank you,



How I can simulate control speed of car with sensor of speed, noise, feedback on maplesim?thanks


MapleSim 2016 is here!

MapleSim 2016 provides variety of improvements to streamline the user experience, expand modeling scope, and enhance connectivity with other tools. Here are some highlights:

  • Collapsible task panes provide a larger model workspace, so you can see more of your model at once.
  • Improved layout ensures the tools you need for your current task are available at your fingertips.
  • The expanded Multibody component library now supports contact modeling.
  • A new add-on library, the MapleSim Pneumatics Library from Modelon, supports the modeling and simulation of pneumatic systems.
  • The MapleSim CAD Toolbox has been extended to support the latest versions of Inventor®, NX®, SOLIDWORKS®, CATIA® V5, Solid Edge®, PTC® Creo Parametric™, and more.
  • The MapleSim Connector, which provides connectivity to Simulink®, now supports single precision export of S-functions so you can run your MapleSim models on hardware that only supports single precision.

See What’s New in MapleSim 2016 for more information about these and other improvements.



Can we get it in MapleSim, not in exactly this form, but in substance? (Not in Maple)
The line of intersection of surfaces:
(x1-0.5) ^ 4 + x2 ^ 4 + x 3 ^ 4-1. ^ 2 = 0.;
x1 ^ 2 + (x2-0.25) ^ 2 + x3 ^ 2-1. ^ 2 = 0.;
(Red) rotates about an axis oX3. During rotation, the line intersects with the fixed sphere ((0., 1.5, 0 .5); R = 1.725). One of the points of intersection is drawn in green. Green Dot and the center of the sphere connected to the blue segment.  In the sphere  of  fixed  trajectory of  the green point.
In other words, the geometric model  3d  cam mechanism and its kinematics.

Does any one know if you can extract the linear graph from a Maple Sim model?  And by linear graph I mean the alternative to a a bond graph, not a type of plot.

Hi, does anyone know how to choose the variables that populate the DAE Variables box when you use "equation extraction"?

I want the result to be in terms of the voltage source and the voltage drop across the capacitor for a RLC circuit.  I want to be able to choose the input-output variables for the final equation.



I have a question about using embedded component in Maple 2015.

I want to import the MapleSim model to Maple and use the "Combo Box" (which is one of the embedded component in Maple) to load the parameters that were used in the MapleSim model.


Embedded Component


The picture above shows the Maple worksheet that I made simply.

As you can see, I imported the MapleSim file (which contains three parameters, m, c, and k) to the Maple by using "MapleSim Component (Embedded Component)".

After that, I wanted to load these three parameters to the "Combo Box" automatically like the picture above, but I couldn't do that.

(In the case above, I manually type m, c, and k in the "Combo Box")


Isn't there any way to load the parameters to "Combo Box" automatically?

I attached the MapleSim file that I made. It also contains the Maple worksheet.  



I appreciate any idea you may have.

I want to build a custom component by the material’s stress-strain curve ,for the component signal input is the x(t)(displacement-time curve), then I can simulate the material’s acceleration-time curve,the stress-strain equation , parameter and the custom component I built has been given in the picture,but the x(t) is same as the s[rel](t),so how to solve this problem? Thanks first.






In addition to the Maple 2015.2 and MapleSim 2015.2 updates for Mac, we have just released updates to both Maple and MapleSim for Windows and Linux.

Maple 2015.2a provides a fix for the sum bug reported here.

MapleSim 2015.a provides a variety of interface improvements, and updates to the MapleSim Battery Library and MapleSim CAD Toolbox.

For Mac users, these improvements are included with the Maple 2015.2/MapleSim 2015.2 updates.

All updates are available through the Check for Updates system, and are also available from our website on the downloads section of our website.
