To help you effectively read and use this guide, here is a brief description of the chapters and a suggested reading path. Generally, you can assume that Simulink® 3D Animation™ software on the Apple Mac OS X platform works as described for the UNIX®/Linux® platforms.
The documentation assumes that you are already familiar with:
MATLAB® product, to write scripts and functions with MATLAB code, and to use functions with the command-line interface
Simulink and Stateflow® charts products to create models as block diagrams and simulate those models
X3D or VRML, to create or otherwise provide virtual worlds or three-dimensional scenes to connect to Simulink or MATLAB software
