Excavator – Multibody, Multi-Domain Physical Model in MapleSim – Maplesoft


This is a basic kinematic model for an excavator. The output of the simulation illustrates the reachable boundary of the bucket and a 3D animation illustrating the motion of the excavator in operation. This is a base model that can be extended to perform design development, safety verification and performance analysis.
