Hi,

I'm currently working on a manipulator model in Maplesim and will import CAD attachments to each of the links. The Solidworks model, once imported to Maplesim, is not located in the same position as the Maplesim part but is offset by X,Y,Z. The scaling is also off. Is there some way to align the CAD to the component instead of trial and error?

Thank you.

MapleSim 6.3 includes substantial improvements to the MapleSim simulation engine, resulting in faster model pre-processing times, more flexible code generation, and expanded support for Modelica-based custom components.

Hello,

For some days, i no longer manage to open MapleSIM.

In fact, after double clicking on the shortcut, the software seems to be launched.

However, i can't open MapleSim on my screen. It seems that MapleSIM is only visible on the taskbars.

Maybe I have changed an option on my windows7.

I don't know.

Has somebody got a idea to help me ? so as to open my application normally ?

I attached a copy of my screen where you can see MapleSIM only in the taskbars.

Thank you for your help.

Hello!!

I am trying to solve rigid nody dynamics on Maplesim!! Trying to simulate Gyroscopic Effect.. I want to plot Angular Momentum of that rigid body!!

How do I do this??

Thanks

I look for a way to color the different subsystems of my system in the 2D mode.

It should be to have a clearer presentation of my system.

Is somebody known as it is possible to color a subsystem ?

Thank you for help.

I study the model of crankshaft in MapleSim.

For the moment, i manage to plot different parameters function of the time. For exemple, the angle of the crank function of the time or the displacement of the slider function of the time.

But, i like to plot the displacement of the slider funtion of the angle of the crank.

Is it possible and how can i do this?

I want to optimal control, i.e. determine command which minimize an onjective function.

So I want know how I can use the Maple function "optimization[NLPSolve]" in a custom block of Maplesim ?

(I do that in Matlab with "fminsearch" and a Matlab function block but I don't manage to do it with maplesim)

It's a very easy question but i don't find for the moment.

I want to measure an angle in a revolute joint. For that purpose, i use a probe to measure the angle. The angle is measured in rad. How can i do to change in deg ?

Hello everyone!

I am very new to the maplesoft community but am very impressed with everything I have learned in the last few days. I'm having an issue using force probes on a double wishbone suspension that I'm hoping someone can help me with. I am trying to measure the forces in each link to gather quantitative solutions for the forces at the chassis connection points. However, I keep getting one of the links measuring no value at all. The...

We have just released the MapleSim Hydraulics Library from Modelon, a new add-on component library for advanced hydraulics modeling. The result of a technology partnership with Modelon, the renowned developer of high-quality Modelica libraries, the MapleSim Hydraulics Library from Modelon allows you to:

I need to model universal joint and spherical joint with spring elements.

Contrary to the revolute joint where there is an option to put spring element, i don't find this option in the universal joint and the spherical joint. So is there a simple solution to model spring in this kind of joint.

I hope that i shouln't have to build the joint with several revolute joint in serial.

I have a little question concerning the definition of the rotation matrix in the rigid body frame.

The rotation matrix is defined like that in the help menu : "The rotation matrix that transforms a vector expressed in the outboard frame to the inboard frame".

Consequently, we have :

I would like to define my model with symbolic parameters. Consequently, i have to define the symbolic parameters and theirs values in main folder.

To illustrate, i define my parameters a1, a2 like this.

After, i need to define a frame by using the parameter a1. This frame is define like this :

Hi

I'm new to maple and maplesim and I'm trying to model a 6 DOF manipulator (IRB 140); derive its forward and inverse kinematics and control it.

I modeled the manipulator in maplesim and attached the CAD files, but I don't know how to derive the inverse kinematics!

I tried to define the end effector position and orientation symbolicly, by putting sympolics in end effector output frame an defining default values for them to use them...

In multibodies system, there exists many kind of coordinates namely joint (or relative) coordinates and absolute coordinates. Moreover, for the joint (or relative) coordinates, it is possible to choose strict, simplified, or complete coordinates.

For the moment, i only find in the tutorials system modeled with complete joint (or relative) coordinates. I will give the example of a 4 bars mechanism. The kinematic scheme with this complete joint coordinates is the following :
