Link to Simulink and Simscape Multibody Models

Establish a live data connection between the model and the virtual world by creating associations between dynamic model object quantities and corresponding virtual world object properties.

Import VRML Models from CAD Tools

Import VRML models from CAD tools by converting your product assembly model into the VRML format used by the Simulink 3D Animation software. Most CAD tools have VRML export filters.

Modify the CAD Model Virtual World

Use the 3D World Editor or other editor to modify the results of CAD tool export filters manually.
