This is a progression of the relationship between the two companies that has already enabled engineers to connect Maple and MapleSim, with SOLIDWORKS, a solid modeling computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided engineering (CAE) program.
Integration of SOLIDWORKS with Maple, the complete, rapid solution development environment, gives users a seamless way to import CAD model parameters into Maple. This gives them access to Maple’s advanced analysis tools for rigorous mathematical analysis and optimization. Users can then export updated model parameters from Maple to SOLIDWORKS.
By importing multibody CAD models from SOLIDWORKS into Maplesoft’s modeling and simulation platform, MapleSim, users can automatically capture the kinematic and kinetic properties of the model components. They can also evaluate how mechanical CAD models will behave as part of a larger, multidomain system, and apply MapleSim's advanced analysis tools to improve and optimize designs.
“SOLIDWORKS Partner Products are tools and applications that will help our customers extend the power and utility of their SOLIDWORKS solutions,” said Nicholas Iwaskow, Director, Alliances & Partnerships, SOLIDWORKS. “It can help bring innovative, quality products to market more efficiently and cost-effectively. We are excited to welcome Maplesoft and its products to this prestigious group, which aims to help our customers design innovative products, and achieve development goals.”
“We are pleased to solidify our relationship with SOLIDWOKS by being recognized as a certified Solutions Partner,” said Samir Khan, Product Manager, Maple. “Integration of our products will provide users a strong connection between the engineering knowledge and the final applications, so the understanding behind the application is preserved, the process is validated, and changes are easily made. Customers will see improved productivity and significant savings in time.”
