Question: Modeling a multi body system with absolute coordinates


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 ? Is there some models with absolute coordinates? It seems that all the models were built with relative coordinates.

To train myself to do it, i would like to model the slidercrank mechanism with absolute coordiantes.

Thank you for your help.
