I'm interesting to model with MapleSim a system with absolute coordinates. Indeed, i would like to compare my analytical results i have found with the symbolic equations i can generate with MapleSim and the model i have built was made with absolute coordinates.

So, is it possible to model a multi body sytem with absolute coordinates instead relative coordinates ?

For the moment, i have found any model (or tutorial) with absolute coordinates ?...

Mechanics of Materials toolbox for Maple: 10 (or bit more :)) free licences for Maple fans.

For students, engineers and simply creative fans of Maple.

If you are concerning mechanics of materials or structural mechanics, please feel free to

send Hardware ID code via e-mail: after downloading from

and installing MM Toolbox for Maple.

(Maple 32 bit only)

Thanks to Maplesoft for analytic power


I solve a mechanical exercise but i had a problem.

I know M (mass) and S (stifness) matrices (6x6).

I want to solve the (λ2M+S)v=0  eigenvalue problem, where λ are the eigenvalues and


I was just curious if MapleSim has integration capability with Zemax.

I'm interested in creating a dynamic electro-mechanical model (i.e. optical imaging on a moving system):

Zemax <--> MapleSim

If there isn't a toolbox yet, is there a workaround?


Thank you again!


Well, I'm trying to connect a translational spring to a revolute joint. But, I'm unable to do so. I'm new to MapleSim and I ain't a mechanical engineer either. I need you to help me a little. Anticipating a quick response!

It would be good I hope to present symbolic-numeric CAE system for framed structures analysis.

It will be available soon as Preview version for enthusiasts

The main features are:

  • One calculation act - all analytical dependencies.
  • Fast designing process for structural systems in industry, consulting and design companies;
  • Fastest parametric analysis of construction. New quality of designing in optimization tasks,...
