MapleSim Insight Release Supports Digital Twin-based Solutions
The latest release of MapleSim Insight provides enhanced simulation-based 3D visualization and debugging capabilities.
June 4, 2021
Maplesoft offers new turnkey solutions for machine builders that make virtual commissioning highly accessible even to organizations that have no experience with modeling and simulation using digital twins, the company reports. Providing a combination of products and engineering services, Maplesoft will work closely with organizations that are new to virtual commissioning to identify a suitable project, develop a high-fidelity virtual model, and deploy that model to anyone in the organization who needs it using MapleSim Insight simulation platform.
The latest release of MapleSim Insight provides enhanced simulation-based 3D visualization and debugging capabilities that connect directly to common automation platforms.
Maplesoft's new turnkey solutions for creating digital twins and implementing virtual commissioning provides full-service solutions for diagnosing, fixing and optimizing machine performance. Customers can seek solutions to individual issues without having prior simulation experience, and Maplesoft will provide a validated digital twin. These digital twins are developed using MapleSim, the multidomain modeling and simulation tool from Maplesoft, which provides a single environment to model all of the key systems found in typical machine designs, including mechanical, hydraulic and electrical systems.
Customers are also provided with a new version of MapleSim Insight, a low-cost tool for simulating, visualizing and sharing MapleSim models with teams who aren’t already familiar with modeling tools. In 2021, MapleSim Insight gives users faster simulation results, more options for 2D plotting and 3D visualizations, and improved abilities for in-depth, custom analysis.
Customers can also use MapleSim Insight for real-time visualization and testing of machine control code, with direct connectivity options for industry-standard automation tools. The same 3D visualizations can also be used by non-experts, such as sales teams looking to provide demonstrations of customized hardware to new customers.
“Most companies already understand that they can save time and money in the long run by using digital twins in their product development,” says Chris Harduwar, vice president of business development at Maplesoft. “What stops them from going ahead, however, is the effort it takes to get started. Learning to build a model is a big short-term investment, which can be hard to justify when everybody is busy and you aren’t certain how well the theoretical benefits will translate to concrete advantages in your own specific context.
“The turnkey solutions from Maplesoft give companies a low effort way to discover how digital twins and virtual commissioning can help them solve their immediate, practical problems, and no one has to learn how to build models unless they want to,” adds Harduwar.
The new turnkey solutions from Maplesoft are now available alongside new releases of MapleSim and MapleSim Insight. The MapleSim 2021 family of products allows engineers to address design issues more easily than ever, with improved simulation performance and 3D visualizations, new ways to share models with those who don’t use MapleSim and a host of new and expanded component libraries.
