Description

Edit virtual worlds for 3D animation

The 3D World Editor app creates virtual worlds for visualizing and verifying dynamic system behavior using Simulink® 3D Animation™. Build virtual worlds with Virtual Reality Modeling Language (VRML) or X3D (Extensible 3D).

Use the 3D World Editor to:

  • Create objects in the virtual world from scratch using X3D or VRML node types.

  • Create objects using templates available in the 3D World Editor object library.

  • Import objects exported from CAD tools.

  • Simplify geometries of imported objects.

  • Create or modify hierarchy of objects in the scene.

  • Give objects in the virtual world unique names in order to access them from MATLAB® and Simulink.

  • Set scene background, lighting and navigation properties.

  • Define suitable viewpoints that are significant for working with the virtual world .

Open the 3D World Editor App

  • MATLAB Toolstrip: On the Apps tab, under Simulation Graphics and Reporting, click the app icon.

  • MATLAB command prompt: Enter vredit.

Introduced in R2010b
