Hi,

First, you need to create the virtual world for your scene. See this webinar for how to do it:
http://www.mathworks.com/wbnr30303

Second, you use this world with Simulink 3D Animation, like shown in the file vrcar.m

Hope this helps.

These are VRML worlds, created outside MATLAB and Simulink. The VR Toolbox
(now Simulink 3D Animation) only interfaces to VRML worlds, it doesn't
create them. Have a look a:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VRML
http://www.web3d.org/x3d/vrml/
http://www.mathworks.com/access/helpdesk/help/toolbox/sl3d/f2-40258.html

In addition, a lot of CAD packages now allow to export to VRML.

See the following webinars:

VRML worlds are usually either created using a VRML editor or exported
from a CAD software. If you are running Windows, you can try the V-Realm
editor that ships with Virtual Reality Toolbox.

VRML is an open text-based format, so you may want to use another
editor. You can even edit VRML files in plain text editor, although
nobody would probably do it for anything but trivial changes.

Good Luck, Jan
