These are questions asked by wswain

I am trying to expand the ridgid beam model to flexible beam model to 1.) use fixed walled end to calulate cantilever deflection from a constant load, and visualize deflection; and then 2.) incorporate a compliant walled joint (rotary joint) with stiff rotational spring. To get angles of rotation; and finally simulate a periodic force and calc/plot all reactions/theta(t).


There is a video on line of a round beam with fixed-fixed ends and a translating weight with deflection visulized, but only a you tube vid can be found of this set-up.   It is close to what I need.


Lastly, if anyone knows how to send the diagram to maple as in A:=MapleSim:-___()

This method to transfer from Sim to maple with diagram and current session(#?) was done in a tutorial vid from MapleSim session. I am using Maple/MapleSim 2017 which is difficult to follow changes in workspace and commands from vids/tutorials.

PS. I have connected through opening a new worksheet and explicitly opening by filename. 

how can I sort a diff EQ by its degree.  Example 4th order with 4 being farthest left in normal reading format?


D4 + D3 + D2 +D + C = F(t)


my equation display is currently:

C + D + D2.......



I watched a webinar training:   Maple Training for Engineers, Researchers, and Scientists.


The file demonstrated topics and used collapsible regions with a colored band across the document and a + / - sign on the left to open/close the section or region.  Different than the document gray down arrow.


I have searched all the documentation and can not find how to do this.   I have done this in other programs like MathCAD to close and lock a region from viewing or editing of specific formulas.


Any help always appreciated.




has anybody experienced issues with Maple connectiong to Solidworks?  There doen't seem to be much info ion trouble shooting a failed "OpenConnection" call.
