The Marine Visualization Toolbox

version 1.0 (3.22 MB) by

The toolbox creates 3D animations from 6 DOF data

5 Downloads

Updated

No License

The toolbox displays up to 6 DOF data from simulations, experiments or measurements of marine control systems as 3D animations. The animations may be viewed on-line or saved to AVI-files.

3D models of some marine vessels are included. By following the MVT guidelines custom models may be used with the toolbox. This is described in a tutorial.

Help on all functions and two tutorials are included to get you started, and to provide information for those who want to customize the functionality.

@Pavel
I had the same problem as Pavel M. The error is due to an elevated permission request when installing to the matlabroot toolbox folder which is located in an administrator(Windows)/ root(Linux) protected location.
The fix, for Windows, was to run Matlab as administrator. I suspect for it'll be something similar for Linux.
Can't wait to start playing with the toolbox.

Hello dear Andreas Lund Danielsen,
Attn.: One that succ. to install the toolbox,
What I do? - I run the MVTInstall.m from the same folder as the other files as per Installation.txt and I get:

>> MVTinstall

Searching for installed components...
No components were found.

Installing toolbox functions:
Error using mkdir
Access is denied.

Error in extractArchive>extractArchiveEntry (line 74)

Error in extractArchive (line 49)

Error in unzip (line 98)

Error in MVTinstall (line 114)
unzip('MVT_toolbox.zip', mvt_folder);

Error in MVTinstall (line 30)
MVTinstall('toolbox');

Please respond, what is wrong ? How to fix and install finally the toolbox ?

I was trying to install it but it was giving me a couple errors which are like....
??? Error using ==> mkdir
Access is denied.

Error in ==> extractArchive>extractArchiveEntry at 77
mkdir(parentDir)

Error in ==> extractArchive at 52
files = extractArchiveEntry( ...

Error in ==> MVTinstall at 114
unzip('MVT_toolbox.zip', mvt_folder);

Error in ==> MVTinstall at 30
MVTinstall('toolbox');

initially then i extracted both the folders and then tried running the install file and it gave a error again......
