How Does MapleSim Compare?


MapleSim presents a more complete system-level solution that can integrate into your current system. Unlike SystemModeler, MapleSim allows you to enhance your modeling toolchain rather than replace it. Build multi-domain plant models easily in MapleSim, then export to various targets such as standard C, Modelica, Simulink and NI just to name a few.
