Simscape File Deployment
Use Simscape™ files in block diagrams
You deploy the textual component files in block diagrams by converting them into custom Simscape blocks. You can quickly transform a Simscape component file into a block in your model by using the Simscape Component block. You can also build custom block libraries of your Simscape components, enabling you to share these models across your organization. For more information on these two methods, see Generating Custom Blocks from Simscape Component Files.

Basic Techniques of Custom Component Deployment
- Generating Custom Blocks from Simscape Component Files
How to turn a textual component file into a Simscape block.
- Selecting Component File Directly from Block
Quickly deploy a single component file.
- Deploy a Component File in Block Diagram
This example shows how you can quickly transform a Simscape component file into a block in your model.
- Switch Between Different Source Components
This example shows how you can try out several variants of a component in your model by pointing the Simscape Component block to different component files.
- Prototype a Component and Get Instant Feedback
This example shows how you can interactively modify the component source and get instant feedback on the resulting block implementation.
Custom Block Display in Diagrams
- Customizing the Block Name and Appearance
How to customize the block name, names of parameters, variables, and ports, and the block icon.
- Customize Block Display
This example shows a complete component file with annotation and the resulting library block and dialog box.
- Use Advanced Techniques to Customize Block Display
This example shows how you can use block layout annotation and enumerations to improve usability of a custom block.
Custom Block Libraries
- Building Custom Block Libraries
Generate a custom block library from a package of Simscape component files.
- Customizing the Library Name and Appearance
Package names must be valid MATLAB® identifiers.
- Create a Custom Block Library
This example illustrates how you can convert a package of Simscape component files into a custom block library, containing sublibraries with customized names and appearance.
- When to Rebuild a Custom Library
You need to rebuild the custom Simscape libraries:
