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.
