MapleSim Component Library Overview

The MapleSim component library contains hundreds of components that you can use to build models. It also contains sample models that you can view and simulate. To view the available components, expand the palettes in the Library Components tab ( ) on the left side of the MapleSim window.

Modeling components are organized in sub-libraries according to their respective domains:



1-D Mechanical

Components to model 1-D translational and rotational systems.


Components to model electrical analog circuits, single-phase and multiphase systems, and machines.


Components to model hydraulic systems, fluid power systems, cylinders and actuators.


Components to model magnetic circuits.

Multibody Mechanical

Components, including force, motion, and joint components, to model multibody mechanical systems.

Signal Blocks

Components to manipulate or generate input and output signals.


Components to model heat flow and heat transfer.

Note: The ID columns in the tables of these help pages list the programmatic names for parameters, variables, and certain connectors. These names are displayed in a Maple worksheet when you perform advanced analysis tasks; these names may differ from the names of their corresponding elements displayed in the MapleSim interface.

For more information about analysis tasks and working with your model in Maple, see Chapter 5: Analyzing and Manipulating a Model in the MapleSim User's Guide.
