Add virtual reality visualization framework to block diagrams
vrphysmod(vrmlfile, model) or
subsystem) updates the model or subsystem that the SimMechanics™
mech_import function generates.
The model must be on the MATLAB® path or already open prior
to calling the
vrphysmod adds additional
blocks to visualize the mechanical system in virtual reality. You
can then save, rename, modify, and run the model. The
vrmlfile is optional. The association between
mechanical system bodies and corresponding VRML nodes found in the
VRML file is based on the name correspondence.
If your model contains several VR Sink blocks
that refer to the same
vrmlfile, this function
attempts to consolidate the animation signals of that virtual scene
into one VR Sink block.
The SolidWorks® VRML export filter does not preserve part
instance names and the part order in the resulting VRML file. Therefore,
the association between such parts and the corresponding bodies in
the block diagram is not always an exact match. In such cases, the
function identifies nodes with partial matches and issues warnings.
To prevent these warnings, ensure that node
If you receive this warning and the set of VRML files does not originate in the SolidWorks product, ignore the message. Other supported CAD tools also generate part names with similar names, but preserve them across different export formats.
