When I run a simulation (i.e. Double Pendulum Example) MapleSim crashes with no errors or dialogues - completely shuts down. The simulation seems to compile ok, then as the plots are opening it crashes. My video card driver is up to date. Anyone know how to fix this?


i click the web said USD99

but after click into it, academic version is USD1,555

there are commercial version, academic version , what are difference?

i see that there are self balance robot and humanoid walk robot

what are the specification of size, length of components are they?

if simulate robot hand which has a string make a tension to grip object

what kind of string is it? where can buy robots components which fit the simulations it do?

will maplesoft cooperate with 3D printer to fit the reality of robots?

Hi everyone.

I have a question:

How I can simulate the amplification of the beam in a diode-pumped ytterbium-doped material?

I am work on thin disk laser resonators and its gain medium is Yb:YAG.


I used to use windows 32 bit, but I have 64 bit windows now. I installed the MapleSim 6.4 and Maple 18 and try to run the simulations that I created with the 32 bit windows. I have this error 'Unable to compile (rc=1), please try again, and if that fails verify your Windows compiller installation'. Could you please let me know what should I do to eliminate this problem?




I would like to apply a torque directly on a revolute joint. I use a torque modulated by a signal source which is modified chirp signal.

I have done like in the figure below :

After having added this torque, my model no longer runs. The error message is only "simulation interrupted".

Do I correctly plug the torque ? Should I plug the torque element more in the flange a or b of the considered revolute joint ?

Do I tick "use support flange" ? Anyway, with or without, my model crashes.

Thanks a lot for your help.



During the simulation of my model, I received this bug:

"cannot resolve function `Main.'Typesetting:-mambiguous'`; there is no function `'Typesetting:-mambiguous'` visible in model `Main`"

Have you a idea of the problem ?

How can I localize my issue ? Is there some options to localize the issue with a debug mode ?

Thanks a lot for your help


Hi , i need to write some maple functions for the equations below and i am not sure if this should be arrays or not. please see the question below;

Consider a factory which manufactures only one product. Raw material is bought from external supplier and stored until required.

Finished items are held in a warehouse. The operation of factory and its warehouse

can be modelled as a set of equations as folllows.

 Let us define at time t :

R(t) = Raw material stored (units)

F(t) = finished goods stock (units)

B(t) = order backlog (units)

T(t) = target stock level for finished goods (units)


All variables defined above give quantities at the start of week t.


X( t, t+1 )= weekly orders received from customers

M( t, t+1 )= raw material supplied per week.

P( t, t+1 )= production per week.

D(t, t+1 )= amount dispatched to customers per week.


All variables defined above give quantities over week t to t+1

(i.e over the week t). The operation of the factory and its warehouse can be expressed

as a set of equations given as follows:


Backlog and Stock Position

(1) B(t+1) = B(t)+X (t,t+1)–D(t,t+1)

(2) T(t+1) =(m +1)/m(X(t,t+1)+X(t–1,t)+…+X (t–m+1,t–m+2))


(assuming that the company wishes to maintain m (suppose m=5)) weeks stock of

finish items and hence the target level is m times the average of the last m–1 weeks)

(3) R (t+1)=R(t)+M(t,t+1)–P(t,t+1)

(4) F (t+1)=F (t) +P(t,t+1)–D(t,t+1)


(5) D (t,t+1) = B(t) if B(t)<F(t)

F (t) otherwise

(6) M (t,t+1) = P(t–1,t)

(7) P (t,t+1) = T(t) – F(t) + D(t,t+1)

= R(t) if result exceeds R(t)

= 0 if the result is negative


Given the initial values for the variables, it is possible to simulate this system to study

how the system will respond to the order rate. Suppose that all is calm, and the factory

has operated as follows for the last five weeks.

Target warehouse stock = 250

Finished goods stock = 250

Raw material stock = 150

Production rate = 50/week

Material supply rate = 50/week

Order rate = 50/week

Order backlog = 50


Suppose the behaviour continues for the first week of the simulation but that during

next week orders double due to the sales promotion. During the third week orders

drops to zero as all demand returns of the previous week was satisfied. For the fourth

week and the succeeding weeks, demand returns to an order rate of 50/week. What

happens elsewhere in the system? A deterministic simulation will provide the answer

to the above mentioned question.


 For this compute the following.

i) The values of the equations (1)–(4) at the start of week t.

ii) The values of the equations (5)–(7) i.e. the new values of the rates during

the following week.

iii) Move simulation time to the start of the next week.

Next simulation should be presented in tabular form and plot production and demand

rate to examine the performance of the system.


All help will be much appreciated.

Best Regards,


Hi MaplePrimers!

I have a simulation in MapleSIM, exported as a compiled procedure in maple using -LinkModel(), and -GetCompiledProc.

I'm trying to do parameter estimation on my MapleSIM model.  Within a optimization scheme, I call the MapleSIM model, and it will output a curve.  Using a least squares method, I compare this measurements to synthetic experimental data (I know the actual values), and generate an objective function.  The optimization algorithm will try different parameter values, and try to minimze the objective function.  When the curves are exactly the same, the objective function will be zero.

The problem I am having is certain parameter sets will cause the model to require very small steps.  I wish to put a timeout on these experiments, because speed is important.  However, I would also like to see the results up to the point of requiring very small steps.  For timeout, I was using code along the lines of:

out:= timelimit(30,cProc(params = PData)); #simulate with 30s limit

where PData are the parameter guessses, and cProc is the compiled MapleSim model.

I would like 'out' to be assigned whatever the results were after 30 seconds, even if the model had not finished integrating.


Thanks in advance for any help!

How  can you create a loop for Monty Hall Problem when you have 3 door (1 opening) and then 4 Doors (with 2 openings and possible 2 switches)


So I am working on doing some trajectory simulations in Maple using standard Newton's Laws, some force expressions, and initial conditions.

Anyway, the numerical solution works fine if I let the initial conditions I specified (for z=-1) be actually for z=-0.9. To illustrate, when I give an initial condition like this:

x(-1) = x_0, D(x)(-1) = xd_0, Vz(-1) = v_0

the results don't make any sense. However, when using the same x_0, xd_0, and v_0 and I give initial conditions like this:

x(-.9) = x_0, D(x)(-.9) = xd_0, Vz(-0.9) = v_0,

the solutions at least make a bit of sense.

What's weird is that, when I let z -> 0.93 or so, the solution changes discontinuously. And this shouldn't happen. The initial conditions were calculated for and should work for z = -1. I don't understand why they aren't.

Here is my Maple document. ics1 are the problem.

Do you guys have any idea what could be going on?

Hi, i´m trying to understand how does maplesim simulate a model with differential equatyions and on maplesim help i found this:


"Numeric Integration and Event Handling

During numeric solving (or "integration"), inequality conditions that are part of the model
are monitored and an event is triggered when one or more of these conditions change.
Whenever such an event is encountered, the numeric solver is stopped and the simulation


i am trying to simulate a costum component, but i get this error when starting to compile initial values i get this error:

(in dsolve/numeric/RunSimulation) keyword event_blindeye not recognized
Simulation failed.

Why? This costum component was tested on another PC and worked.



Hi, there, maple built-in help just has an example of Brusselator model in 1D case. But how can I intepreter the diffusion terms that Brusselator has in 2D case? Could you please give me an example of the code to run Brusselator simulation in 2D case?

Brusselator model:


Thank you


I have just started using MapleSim 5 and running the examples I got the following notification and don't know how to resolve it (to what options are being referred to and what is infolevel?):


(in dsolve/numeric/RunSimulation) unable to compile, please check your options by running with infolevel[ToExternal]:=1;

Simulation failed.

Not sure what (in DNS/RunSimulation) means but it preceeds my "simulation failed, an error occurred" note.
