Viewing Model Information in Model Report

Model Report Overview

Model Report is a diagnostic utility that helps you to identify assembly issues in a SimMechanics™ multibody model. This utility, accessible from Mechanics Explorer upon model update, provides joint and constraint assembly data as well as pertinent model statistics. If a model contains joint blocks with state targets, Model Report identifies the discrepancy, if any, between the specified and actual joint states.

Graphical User Interface

Model Report contains one header section and three tabs. The header section identifies the overall assembly status of the model, its joints, and its constraints using icons. The three tabs provide more focused information on joint assembly, constraint assembly, and model statistics. The image shows the Joints tab of Model Report for a double-pendulum model.

Assembly Status Icons

Model Report identifies the model, joint, and constraint assembly status using three icon types. The table summarizes the meaning of each icon type.

IconMeaning

Assembly successful. Used in the joint position and velocity status fields, this icon indicates that the joint state targets have been met precisely.

Assembly successful with issues. Used in the joint position and velocity status fields, this icon indicates that the joint state targets have been met approximately.

Assembly failed. Used in the joint position and velocity status fields, this icon indicates that the joint state targets have not been met.

Simscape Statistics and Variable Viewer Utilities

In addition to Model Report, you can access model statistics and assembly status information using two Simscape™ utilities: Statistics Viewer and Variable Viewer. Combined, these utilities provide the same information content of Model Report, with additional data for 1-D model components belonging to other physical domains—e.g., hydraulic, pneumatic, or electrical.
