How to import a simulink file and run at activate?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

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.

 

regards,

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:

Thanks Roberta,

 

The Altair Connect isn`t working for new user registration. I`ll try again later.

Could you host the Simport activate at this forum as attached file?

Rodrigo,

I suggest that you try again later to access Altair Connect, because unfortunately it is not possible to share these files here. And let us know if you have any questions or if you have any issue when following the steps above.

Regards,

Roberta

Hi Roberta,

 

Actually the simport is available at portal for Activate Basic too.

 

I tried to import your model and some of my own models and the import work.

 

I believe this is the first software able to import a simulink file and run. Both simulink formats are supported (mdl (legacy) and slx).

I tried to import a simulink project with subsystem (superblock) and something strange happen. If the subsystem don`t have mask the import work fine, but if the subsystem have some kind of mask the import didn`t work well, the superblock was imported empty.
