Connectivity to major CAD systems extended in Maple 16
Maplesoft’s™ (Waterloo, Canada) recently released version of Maple comes with improved connectivity to major CAD systems. Available from Adept Scientific (Letchworth, Herts) Maple 16 extends its support to Autodesk Inventor® 2012, Solidworks® 2012 and Siemens NX® 8.
CAD users can take advantage of Maple’s computational power to analyse and optimise designs. By using Maple, CAD users determine the mathematical relationships between objects and how changes to object properties impact other objects in their design. Users can retrieve parameters from a CAD model, optimise those parameters and update the CAD model with the revised parameter values directly from the Maple environment. Using the Maple programming language, built-in API commands and interactive technical document environment, users can also create easy-to-use specialised tools for part reconfiguration and optimisation, to share with other engineers.
“By enabling the exchange of information between CAD systems and Maple, we bring our core technology to a broader range of engineers,” said Laurent Bernardin, Executive Vice President, Maplesoft. “With the world’s most robust maths engine, live design documentation, system level modelling and simulation, CAD connectivity and code generation, Maplesoft products like Maple and MapleSim support all stages of the design lifecycle.”
Maple easily integrates into development projects using a wide range of connectivity features. In addition to CAD connectivity, features like external calling, the OpenMaple API, web connectivity, extensive import and export tools and connectivity with other software make it easy to incorporate Maple seamlessly into existing engineering toolchains.

What do our Customers say about us?
I recommend EndNote to all my students who I supervise on dissertations at undergraduate, postgraduate, and doctoral levels. Sometimes they ask if I get commission for doing this, which I do not. But the software is great, and fantastic time saver when putting journal articles or theses together.DF, W Yorks, UK
Very enthusiastic, willing to answer questions, helpful, friendly – overall very good
I have now followed your (very clear!) instructions and am happy to report that my problem is solved. Magic! You have made me a much, much happier person!CS, Reading, UK
I have had a very helpful response, and have passed it on to my Oxford colleagues with success. I am impressed with the way Adept seems to maintain the same staff for many years, which speaks very well for the organisation.HG, Oxford, UK
