How to import a simulink file and run at activate?

Recommended Posts



This is my first steps at this platform.

How can I import a simulink model (from mathworks vendor) for use at activate?  The extension is 'slx'.


I didn`t find any tutorial about it.

Hello Rodrigo,

Except for Simscape, we are able to import Simulink blocks when we install the extension Simport available at Altair Connect (https://connect.altair.com/CP/):


Then we open Activate and install Simport as a library:


And we will be able to import the desired block diagram from Simulink:




We are not able to import all Simscape blocks because we have our own physical-based blocks in our Modelica library, which is an open-source language to simulate physical components. We have hundreds of physical blocks in the native installation of Activate with mechanical, thermal components and many others. So in case you find issues when importing physical blocks, we may be able to substitute them with the Modelica equivalent ones.


I just attached a sample model to exemplify the Simulink importation. What you will see when it is imported is the following block diagram:
