I have a question concerning the initial conditions.
One interest of MapleSim is to enable to model a multibody systems with different kinds of coordinates : namely relative and absolute coordinates.
For a complex system, it seems to me that the determination of the initial position is not an easy task.
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.
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.
Thanks a lot for your ideas and help.
