Interactive Model Editing

Create block diagram models using blocks and signal lines

Learn the basics you need to build models and be productive in the Simulink® editing environment.

Build and Edit a Model Interactively covers the complete modeling process, from starting the software to building the block diagram to simulating and viewing results. Master the tips, tricks, and shortcuts that speed up model building.

Create and Edit Models

Manage Files

  • Create Template from Model
    Create a template to reuse customized settings in new models, including configuration settings, blocks, and visual presentation.
  • Manage Model Versions and Specify Model Properties
    View and edit model version information, history, callback functions, and the model description.
  • Create a Project from a Model
    Create a project to organize your model and any dependent files. Simulink runs dependency analysis on your model to identify required files and a project root location that contains all dependencies.
