We are pleased to announce that we have just released new versions of Maple and MapleSim!
Here are some highlights from the new releases:
Maple 13 includes completely new 3D plot facilities, which are faster and use less memory. Another nice benefit is you can now annotate 3-D plots just like you do 2-D plots, including proper math notation in titles and labels, tickmarks in multiples of pi, and arrows. You can also create fly-through animations, which zoom a virtual camera around your 3-D plots. We’ve put a few examples on our website…take a look.
Writing multithreaded applications is now a whole lot easier using a new task-based programming model. You no longer have to worry about synchronization tools – Maple handles that part. For example, here’s an interactive Mandelbrot application that uses the task-based model to automatically distributes the calculations to all available processors.
And the in small-but-useful category, Maple 13 now includes an Export to PDF option.
For more information on these and many other features, see What’s New in Maple 13.
MapleSim 2 includes a really cool new 3D animation feature for multibody systems. You just define the model, and when you run the simulation, MapleSim automatically creates an animated version of your model so you can really see what is going on. You can even attach your own STL shape files, so the animations look more realistic…take a look for yourselves!
MapleSim 2 also includes a results manager that lets you keep track of the results of different simulation runs. Previous results can be viewed without having to re-execute the simulation, and are accessible from one session to the next.
