MapleSim Insight - Maplesoft
MapleSim Insight Logo
Give non-experts an easy way to simulate, visualize, and explore their digital twins, and unlock virtual commissioning by connecting models directly to your automation tools.

Find simulation-based control efficiencies to run your hardware at peak performance.

  • Develop optimized control code by testing against realistic machine models
  • Fix unwanted vibrations or other machine issues without resorting to hardware upgrades
  • Get real-time, 3-D visualizations of your machine’s response to control strategies

Simulation-based testing of machine control strategies is a key element of virtual prototyping and the use of digital twins for virtual commissioning. Unfortunately, this step can be cumbersome, as many automation tools provide limited options for machine-level, simulation-based controller testing, and these options often require moving development to an entirely new platform. MapleSim Insight gives machine builders powerful, simulation-based debugging and 3-D visualization capabilities that directly connect to your automation tools, so you can perform simulation-based testing of your controller easily and efficiently. MapleSim Insight provides both 3-D visualizations for quick visual feedback, and 2-D plots to get precise answers for testing and debugging, so you can always get the level of detail you need. With a real-time connection to most common automation platforms, MapleSim Insight shows you exactly how your control strategies will impact your machine – all before a physical prototype is constructed.

MapleSim Insight Features

  • Test the impact of your control strategies in real-time to fix issues and optimize performance without a physical machine present.
  • See 3-D visualizations of your models that run in real-time, giving you a high quality, CAD-based reference for your control strategy development.
  • Compare results from multiple testing scenarios using both 2-D plots and 3-D animations.
  • Use MapleSim Insight with any of your tools that support compiled Function Mock-up Units, such as the Rockwell Studio 5000® Environment or MathWorks® Simulink

FMU Insight
New Features for 2021

In 2021, MapleSim Insight gives you faster simulation results, more options for 2-D plotting and 3-D visualizations, and the ability for in-depth, custom analysis in Maple. Use MapleSim Insight as a simple, low-cost solution for deploying MapleSim models to those who don’t have MapleSim.

  • Use multithreading for faster simulation results when running large, complex models in MapleSim Insight.
  • Easily share your simulation results with others by exporting customizable videos of your 2-D plots and 3-D visualizations.
  • Analyze detailed machine dynamics with customizable data sampling, so you can understand split-second performance issues, or quickly simulate minutes, or even hours, of performance data.
  • Get key insights faster by using traces to show you live results from a short, selected window of time while the simulation runs, and then view your full simulation results afterwards.
  • Perform customized analysis from within Maple by using a new, full-featured API that allows you to control your MapleSim Insight simulations from within Maple.
