Simulink 3D Animation
From MATLAB, you can read and change the positions and other properties of VRML objects, read signals from VRML sensors, create callbacks from graphical tools, record animations, and map data onto 3D objects. You can use MATLAB Compiler™ to generate standalone applications with Simulink 3D Animation functionality for royalty-free deployment.
You can control the position, rotation, and size of a virtual object in a scene to visualize its motion and deformation. During simulation, VRML object properties in the scene can also be read into Simulink. A set of vector and matrix utilities for axis transformations enables associations of Simulink signals with properties of objects in your virtual world. You can adjust views relative to objects and display Simulink signals as text in the virtual world. You can also trace the 3D trajectory, generated using Curve Fitting Toolbox™, of an object in the associated virtual scene. For example, you can perform flight-path visualization for the launch of a spacecraft.
