The problem isn't that it's a multi-array but that it's a
fixed-size array. As the error suggests: it complains about a
double[21], and not about a double[][]

Fixed size arrays you need to slice to make them valid input
ranges. (std.container.array is the same.)

At a terminal:

   $ rdmd --eval 'int[3] x; x.map!"a+1".writeln'
     with Range = int[3]
     whose parameters have the following constraints:
     > isInputRange!(Unqual!Range)
     Tip: not satisfied constraints are marked with >

   $ rdmd --eval 'int[3] x; x[].map!"a+1".writeln'
   [1, 1, 1]

Note the [] in x[].map
