i found a example from %AHMADREZA ESHGHINEJAD (<mailto:ahmadreza.eshghinejad@gmail.com ahmadreza.eshghinejad@gmail.com>) of a bouncing ball on a sinusoidal surface and tried to modify it to fit my model.
but matlab shows an error while calling the "graphicfunction" without any further information. i've been trying to figure out for hours trying to fix it, but it still does not work.
i would really appreciate your help.

Type 'ver' at the command line. Do you have 'Simulink 3D Animation' installed? If not, therein lies your problem.
