    Open a project in RoadRunner using the roadrunner function by specifying the location in which to create a project. This example assumes that RoadRunner is installed in its default location in Windows.

    Specify the path to an existing project. For example, this code shows the path to a project located on C:\RR\MyProject. The function returns a roadrunner object, rrApp, that provides functions for performing basic workflow tasks such as opening, closing, and saving scenes and projects.

    projectFolder = "C:\RR\MyProject";
    rrApp = roadrunner(projectFolder);

    Close the RoadRunner instance rrApp.


    Input Arguments

    RoadRunner application associated with a project, specified as a roadrunner object. This object provides functions for performing common workflow tasks such as opening, closing, and saving scenes and projects. rrApp provides functions that support importing data from files and exporting scenes to other formats from RoadRunner.


    • If you open a RoadRunner instance using a roadrunner object and close it interactively, the object continues to exist in the MATLAB workspace. You must delete it manually.

    • Function calls made to a roadrunner object after closing the associated RoadRunner instance return an error.

    • Closing a RoadRunner instance by using the close function deletes the associated roadrunner object.
